Working collaboratively means the therapeutic journey Is one that we will walk together, side by side

Paula Dickinson

I work at a charity that supports people who have loved ones with substance abuse problems.

I am always mindful of your process so I follow you, making sure to be sensitive and understanding for them in the therapeutic room.

My past experiences include being on the Creative Counsellors’ Club which includes how to work effectively in a therapy room; I wrote an article about creative means for therapists for my previous club’s magazine (Creative Counsellors Magazine) where it talked about bringing sense into this convoluted process called ‘therapy’.

I am also aware of clinical labels such as BPDs (Borderline Personality Disorders), NPDs (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) and SPDs (Schizoid personalities), they can bring up traumatic memories or shame when labelled as disordered according to their diagnosis.

With Drop The Disorder movement, we are trying to make mental health support accessible by not labelling anyone with any disorder!

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapies (BACP), as well as The National Counselling Society (NCS)

Fees

I am open Monday to Friday 10 am – 5 pm with one late night a week.

Sessions are charged in advance and a 24-hour cancellation period is applied otherwise you will be charged fully for that time.

If more than 2 appointments are cancelled then you will be discharged.

This is because therapy takes commitment and is ineffective if not committed to.

It may just be that it’s not quite your time and that is ok there is no judgement imparted.

You can always contact me again if that changes for you.

Sessions are for 50 minutes at a rate of £45.00 per hour

I usually work on one session a week appointments however, should it be appropriate this can be negotiated and adjusted accordingly and by prior agreement.
