Psychotherapeutic Counselling with Damaris J Guiel

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor, who trained in the pluralistic approach. The pluralist approach means, we can use a wide range of different counselling therapeutic techniques to help you.  It allows us to gently change how we approach anything you wish to explore in a way that suits your needs.  We are all unique human beings; different clients will benefit from different styles of therapy and the pluralist approach embraces this.

I offer a relaxed, down to earth, safe, confidential space where you will not be judged and, by working at a speed which is just right for you, we can explore what has been causing you distress and ways to heal and introduce contingencies and tools for you to manage your future in the way that you want. I truly believe everyone has the right to mental peace and contentment.

My counselling journey started six years ago when I trained as a bereavement volunteer for a national charity.  I then went on to train fully as a psychotherapeutic counsellor.  Before becoming a counsellor, I worked in finance, including a global manufacturing business, national hotel chain and a charity.  I am now a fully insured accredited registrant of the National Counselling Society.

I have experience working with a wide range of issues such as anger, anxiety and struggles with confidence.  I have also worked with people facing chronic illness, people who want to change unhelpful habits, people with life affecting phobias, and those experiencing emotional numbness and trauma. These feelings may stem from the stresses of daily life or may have their roots in one incident or more specific areas such as grief, domestic abuse or bullying.

It does not matter if the “distress” you are in right now stems from several life experiences, or whether it relates to something that happened five weeks, five months or fifty years ago.  There is still time to explore, address these issues and ultimately heal.

I am anti-racist and an LGBTQ+ ally.

If you wish to contact me for a free 15-minute conversation to answer any of your queries, you are very welcome; my contact details are below.  If you decide I do not fit your requirements I genuinely wish you well on your journey to finding contentment, peace and mental wellbeing.
