Therapeutic Counselling & Supervision

Hello, my name is Adrienne, I am an experienced and empathic therapeutic counsellor, counselling supervisor, teacher and registered member of the BACP based in the Heaton Moor and Levenshulme I serve the Stockport and South Manchester area.

I provide confidential face to face, online and telephone counselling. I offer flexible hours including evening sessions.

I believe that counselling can provide a safe and neutral space for you to explore challenging thoughts and feelings. My role will be to support you on your journey to explore, gain insight and skills to move forward positively and become empowered.

Services

I am an integrative counsellor which means I am experienced in a broad range of counselling techniques to provide therapy that is tailored to your needs – in a way that best suits you.

Integrative Counselling

This approach combines person centered and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to understand an individual’s experience from their perspective, incorporating elements of CBT focusing on changing unhelpful cognitive thoughts, improving emotional regulation, & developing personal coping strategies.

Supervision

Counselling supervisors help with case conceptualisation, methods, or specific interventions.

“Good supervision is much more than case management. It includes working in depth on the relationship between practitioner and client in order to work towards desired outcomes and positive effects.”

BACP Ethical Framework.

Teaching & Training

“The more that the client perceives the therapist as real or genuine, as empathetic and having unconditional positive regard for him, the more the client will move away from a static, fixed, unfeeling, impersonal type of functioning, and the more he will move toward a way of functioning marked by a fluid, changing, acceptant experiencing of different personal feelings.

The consequence of this movement is an alteration in personality and behaviour in the direction of psychic health and maturity and more realistic relationships to self, others and the environment.”

Carl Rogers, On Becoming a Person (1956)
