Counselling in Plymouth area or South Hams- Wembury
Are you looking for counselling or supervision in the Plymouth area?
Would you like to have counselling but not sure where to turn or worried about speaking to someone you don't know? Would you prefer to speak to someone from your own home? I can offer online (zoom) or telephone counselling if you don't want to meet face to face.
Would it help to have a safe space to talk and try and make sense of what is going on for you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
Explore your thoughts and feelings?
Find some clarity in the confusion?
If you answered yes to any of these, then counselling may be a way forward.
My name is Rowena Slater, usually known as Ro. I'm an experienced counsellor and supervisor working in Wembury, near Plymouth, Devon. I also run a community based counselling service in Plymouth. I have experience of working within the NHS as a counsellor as well as community settings and in schools and youth projects.
I am committed to providing counselling to both adults and young people in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I don't expect you to take my word for it. I offer a free, no commitment 30 minute introductory session so you can find out about counselling and how I work. Interested? Then email or phone me to arrange a convenient time to meet.
Counselling is a collaborative process between the therapist and client. This can be 'open-ended' or for a set number of sessions or an agreed time period. For example, counselling at a GP practice is usually for approximately 6 sessions, where the focus would be on a specific issue. However, in private practice there is much more flexibility. You (the client) may opt for a set number of sessions, or as time goes on, you may decide to stay in counselling for a longer period of time to work through other issues which arise. This is negotiable between the counsellor and client, and can be changed at any time.
The aim of the counsellor and the counselling process is to enable you, the client to enhance your life and to live it more fully. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationships, stress or any number of other difficulties, counselling may be able to help you.
I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with :
- Panic Attacks
Supervision - Are you a therapist or trainee counsellor? Are you looking for a supervisor? It can be face to face in the Plymouth or south Devon area. Or if you are further afield perhaps we can work online via zoom? I am an experienced supervisor working from a person centred perspective but also have experience of CBT, psychodynamic and integrative models. I believe that both counselling and supervision should be shaped to fit the client/supervisee so that you get the most out of it. I also offer supervision/continued professional development to other professionals such as General Practitioners or Social Workers. Again, I offer a free 30 minute session so we can meet and decide if we can work together.
My practice is in the village of Wembury, in south Devon. I work in a purpose built log cabin. Wembury is in easy reach of central Plymouth (10 minutes by car), Plympton and Plymstock. There is parking directly outside and the road is on a main bus route into Plymouth.
