Counselling Services Bridgend, South Wales
Welcome to Free Spirit Counselling, When life gets hard, many people can feel stuck and isolated with their problems, Counselling can prevent small problems escalating into big problems. Here at Free Spirit I offer counselling for women, men, students, work related stress, bereavement and help young people cope with ADHD.
I am an integrative counsellor based in Bridgend and offer the following counsellings services and help:
Adults with ADHD
Impulsiveness, hyperactivity and being disorganised are common traits of ADHD in adults but the symptoms are sometimes not as clear cut in adults, as they are in children, because adults often learn compensatory mechanisms.
Based on empathy, acceptance and understanding. The process of change develops when the client recognises the power of the unconscious and learns how to control their actions and responses.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
A psychotherapy based on modifying cognition's, assumptions, beliefs and behaviours, with the aim of influencing disturbed emotions used to treat various kinds of neurosis and psychopathology, including mood disorders and anxiety disorders.
Motivational Interviewing techniques
Motivational Interviewing: a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen personal motivation for and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy
Solution focused brief therapy (SFBT), often referred to as simply 'solution focused therapy' or 'brief therapy'. Predominantly, it purposefully activates and focuses conversations on the present and future. The therapist/counselor uses respectful curiosity to invite the client to envision their preferred future.
The person-centred approach views the client as their own best authority on their own experience, and it views the client as being fully capable of fulfilling their own potential for growth.
