Larraine Cox1 To 1 Counselling
I have been a counsellor in private practice for over twelve years and worked for Relate for over six years and gained a huge bank of experience working as a relationship counsellor. During this time I have worked with many couples for whom domestic abuse is, or has been, a big part of their issues and I know men and woman can and are perpetrators of this abuse.
Asking for help can be so difficult at any time but especially when dealing with strong emotions such as jealousy, relationship / family issues, anger, stress, shame, anxiety, panic, generalised anxiety disorder and / or depression, to name but a few of so many possible concerns but, it is my aim to help you get onto the road to the life you desire.
I am an experienced, qualified counsellor and I offer my caring, empathic, professional counselling service in the Cheshire & Merseyside area. I have a dedicated counselling room in Runcorn for which there is ample on street parking but please note it is up one flight of stairs – if mobility is an issue for you, I can offer an alternative venue or mobile, telephone or online counselling options.
I can offer a mobile counselling service (travelling to you) in the surrounding local areas of Cheshire and Merseyside.
I work with individuals, couples, young people (11+) / teenagers, schools, local authorities, local businesses and EAPs with either short or long term work. I can offer either a face to face service, via the telephone or even on-line, whatever suits your needs, including a mix of these options.
Whilst mostly I offer daytime appointments I also have a few tea time and evening appointments too.
So how are you feeling – maybe you feel overwhelmed, confused, sad, flat, lost or alone, concerned about a present or past relationship. Are you being bullied or struggling with the challenges of being, or living with, a step parent, or blended family? Maybe a life change is proving too challenging to deal with such as divorce, illness, redundancy or retirement.
If you have suffered a loss or bereavement from miscarriage, suicide, cancer, age, are have issues over being straight or LGBTQ+ or any of the myriad reasons, you may not believe this right now but, talking really can help.
My training and experience enables me to offer you a caring and compassionate counselling session and to treat whatever you bring to the session with both empathy and respect.
How will I do this?
Integrated counsellor, in my case, means I use a mix of person centred, psychodynamic and CBT counselling depending on the needs of each individual (that means I can work with you on issues from the past, present or even fears for the future).
As well as my counselling qualifications I have a huge bank of experience gained from counselling for five years in Halton’s Children’s Centres, counselling young people / teenagers for three years in a secondary school, from being in private practice for over twelve years and working as a relationship counsellor / couples counsellor with Relate for over six years during which time I have worked with both male and female perpetrators of domestic abuse. I have both the Diploma and Practitioner qualification in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), the Diploma in Clinical and Analytical Hypnotherapy and Professional Training in the Therapeutic Use of Mindfulness from the British Mindfulness Institute.
All this training and experience means I have the flexibility to tailor my service to you, as an individual, to better meet your needs.
