I cannot carry you But I will hold you if you stumble I cannot lift you But I will help you if you fall I may not comfort you When all your day dreams crumble But I can listen And I am ready for your call Hope to help you,... when you are ready,... I am from Czech Republic and have lived in England since 1998. I came here as an Au-pair. Eight and half years ago I have been employed in a residential hospital unit working as a member of a multidisciplinary team to provide quality care to adults with learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, and complex needs. Since 2004 I have worked as a residential care worker with 12 -18 year old young people whose needs relate to drug/alcohol use or self-injurious behaviour. Both of these posts have involved working with individuals and facilitating a variety of groups. These posts have also included direct contact with carers and families, including accompanying clients on visits to their family homes. In addition to these posts I regularly work for an agency providing social and health care. This has included working in a young dementia unit, hospices and palliative care for working age and older adults. I have several years of experience of providing care to young people, working age adults and older adults, male and female, with a range of abilities and various social and healthcare needs, in residential and hospital settings. Central to this work, has been the ability to relate well to people, develop good working relationships with them and to be able to communicate clearly. I have worked in settings which are frequently stressful and challenging. I have also dealt with verbal abuse, aggression and hostility on a regular basis. These posts have utilised my skills in counselling, problem resolution, and anxiety management. The bulk of my work is performed on a one to one basis and revolves around problem identification, coping strategies, and developing resolutions. Since 2005 I have worked for Victim Support on a voluntary basis and I am currently supporting victims of crime, such us domestic violence, burglary, forced marriage, and physical and sexual assault. Since 2006 I have worked as a volunteer for Rape Crisis and I currently support women who have been assaulted sexually. My work with Victim Support involves working with families, including children, usually in their own homes. In 2006 I started working as a counsellor. I have delivered professional, supervised counselling with clients with a variety of needs, including diagnosed mental health problems. This work has been supplied to me via EAP's self referral and has included coping with bereavements, phobias, PTS, addiction, anger, stress, anxiety, couple counselling and counselling adult survivors of abuse. In commencing work as a counsellor I have had to use my own initiative, work independently and organise my time effectively. I have used a range of counselling therapies, interventions and techniques. WHAT IS COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY? The counselling process is one in which you have an opportunity for a private face-to-face discussion with a concerned, highly skilled counsellor, for the purpose of resolving your situation. Your counsellor will be an active participant in this problem-solving process, asking questions, making suggestions, and helping you to perceive the situation in a different light. Counselling is an active process, intended to be short-term/long term, and specifically directed towards resolving the problems that brought you to counselling. There are times in life when we all experience problems with living, which we do not seem able to handle on our own. Whether it is a marital problem or a child having difficulty in school, a troubled adolescent, or a situation of substance abuse, spending a few hours with a professional counsellor can be immensely helpful. The earlier you seek help for a problem, the better chance you have to resolve it. Psychotherapy is similar to counselling as they are both confidential services within oral, ethical and legal limits. This involves using active listening and prompting skills. Psychotherapy and counselling are both based on talking and the respectful and trusting relationship that is built up between the client and therapist. The aim is to help and support the client to develop an insight into their problems/issues. The client is encouraged to approach life in a fresh way, by drawing on their own resources of which they may be unaware. In psychotherapy, the process can be applied to more deep-seated personal issues and this tends to go deeper than counselling. Here the client is encouraged to examine aspects of their past, including childhood and their relationships with parents and significant others. This exploration helps the client to become aware of the patterns in their life that have become unconscious and negative habits. This enables these issues to be understood and to start the process of changing them. Some of these issues may be quite complex and require longer-term therapy. WHO IS COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR? Do you feel stressed or lonely? Do you carry a burden of guilt or shame? Are you unhappy , isolated, agitated, anxious or frightened? Have you a general lack of contentment? Do you sometimes wonder who you are, or where you are going? Are relationships becoming difficult and/or uncomfortable? Do you need to rescue, or, be rescued by other people? Do you need more than 1 or 2 drinks or other substances to help you get through the day? Have you ever hurt yourself, thought about it, or thought about hurting others? Have you thought about ending it all? Are you having difficulties coming to terms with a bereavement or loss of another kind? Would you like to develop your self-awareness and personal growth? Do you display obsessive or compulsive behaviour? Do you sometimes get angry out of proportion, become overly passive, or suffer from depression or low moods? Are you concerned about your health, your level of motivation, a traumatic time in your life, your work or car, your sexuality or anything which is becoming a problem? If you have answered 'YES' to one or more of these, psychotherapy may be the answer.
