COUNSELLING

Hi there, my name is Mollie and I'm a counsellor. I am trained as an Integrative counsellor which means I work with a range of counselling theories to help young people feel listened to, understood and to provide them with a space to explore their feelings and thoughts. Some of the theories I'm trained to use are Person Centred, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused and Mindfulness.

Sometimes sitting face to face with someone and talking to them can be difficult, intimidating or scary. This is why I try to bring a range of skills and activities in to our sessions if this feels appropriate. This can provide you with a unique space where you feel comfortable and able to share some of your troubles. Some of the activities I may use in our sessions are; art, sensory activities, worksheets, play, nature and other creative therapies. 

I believe the relationship between client and counsellor is one of the most important parts of counselling. My main aim in our sessions is to allow you to feel safe and comfortable so that when you feel it's right you can start to talk about some of the things that are troubling you. My whole approach is based around you, the young person.

My qualifications are:

  • Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling 

  • Level 3 Foundation Certificate in Counselling.

  • Level 2 Award in Counselling Concepts.

  • Level 1 Connected Kids award from Teaching Children Meditation.

  • Professional Training in the Applied Use of Mindfulness for 12 - 18-year olds from the British Mindfulness Institute.

  • DEAP (Devon Enhanced Autism Programme) Practitioner 

  • Mental Health First Aid for Youth

  • Level 3 Safeguarding training

  • Schools first aid qualified
