Counselling

Carla Boulton, Counsellor offering Counselling in Shrewsbury and ShropshireI am a therapeutic counsellor based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire – if you would like to see me for counselling, you may book an appointment by calling or texting me directly 07724 157617

Are you experiencing challenges in your life? Do you need a listening ear, someone to talk to outside your immediate circle of family and friends? Some areas where counselling may be helpful are low mood, anxiety, grief, relationship problems, lack of confidence, ageing, menopause, children leaving home, coping with illness, depression, anger and general feelings of being unable to cope with day-to-day demands.

I listen with complete confidentiality, I am here for you and will not judge you – my aim is to help you to find your own solutions.

I am a qualified Counsellor with a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and The Person Centred Association (formerly BAPCA).

In addition to this, I have trained in elements of NLP, psychology, transactional analysis and have gained certificates in Counselling Skills, Mental Health Awareness, Suicide Prevention, Anxiety and Panic Management. I am a certified Help2Change Smoking Cessation practitioner. I hold an enhanced DBS (previously Criminal Records Bureau) certificate and have professional insurance. A session costs £40 and we will take time to assess your needs during the first session.

Having spent 30 years as a designer I have found my counselling skills are invaluable to those creatives who are finding life challenging, we can work together to free-up both your emotional and creative processes.

I help people get to the heart of what’s really bothering them. In my own life, I’ve been through good times, bad times and the best of times – the best are, in my mind, the times when life gently moves along without anyone noticing.

‘A bird sitting in a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because its trust is not in the branch but in its own wings.’

In other words, You have the solutions to your problems and I will use my skills to help you unlock your answers. I am here for you with a wealth of complementary skills, email me now to see how I can help.

Devised by Carl Rogers, Person Centred Counselling is based on the assumption that a client seeking help in the resolution of a problem they are experiencing, can enter into a relationship with a counsellor  who is sufficiently accepting and permissive to allow the client to freely express any emotions and feelings. This will enable the client to come to terms with negative feelings, which may have caused emotional problems, and develop inner resources. The aim is for the client to become able to see themself as a person, with the power and freedom to change.
