About Kelly Williams mbacp
Counsellor & Psychotherapist Nuneaton Town Centre.
Hi, my name is Kelly and I am an accredited, person-centred counsellor/psychotherapist and trainer.
What is person-centred counselling?
There are many different types of counselling (or models) and different people respond differently to these. Some are more directive and work by giving the client tasks or goals to achieve. What I offer is what some people call a "talking therapy". Without going into too much technical speak, this basically means that I believe each person has the answer to their own difficulties within themselves. Nobody knows you better than you know yourself and so I will not offer any advice or set goals for you or diagnose you. I am not the expert, you are! Think of it as someone being there to support you as you discover who you are, what you want to do with your life and how to listen to and trust yourself. It's about how you are feeling right now. Counselling is referred to as a "relationship" because it's about two people working together to find the answers for one of them (the client).
My role as your therapist
My aim is to understand your experience from your point of view and to positively value you as a person in all aspects of your humanity, while aiming to be open and genuine as another human being. I am non-judgemental and accepting of difference, so no matter who you are, what race, religion, sexuality or gender you are, you will experience an open and accepting environment with me.
How can counselling help you?
For a lot of people who find counselling useful, it's about having a space just for them, without feeling judged or threatened, away from the busyness of life. A chance to talk about the things that really matter, the things that are causing pain, feelings of loss, confusion, anger or fear. Perhaps for you, a chance to be heard and valued for who you are, to be taken seriously and to be able to hear yourself and what it is you really need in order to break free from whatever holds you captive.
This in itself can sometimes be enough to help a person find the answers for themselves.
