Ros has a person-centred, non-directive approach and aims to listen to and focus on what matters most to clients, as unique individuals. She offers a warm, confidential and empathic environment for clients to share and explore their thoughts and feelings freely, at their own pace and without expectation or judgement.
Ros works with clients to explore, untangle and understand difficult emotions and to alleviate their distress. In her experience, being supported in a trusted therapeutic relationship has helped clients to connect more deeply to their innate resources and gain a stronger sense and trust of themselves. Ros believes that this can enable people to develop effective and long-lasting ways to live their lives with increased confidence, meaning and purpose.
Ros worked as a clinician in the NHS and as a hospice ward volunteer for many years and enjoyed connecting with people from many walks of life. Her experience was that understanding and valuing the needs of people from their perspective and involving them in their care, helped to reduce their stress. Ros has had further training and extensive experience in bereavement and loss support. She also has training in substance misuse, trauma and using expressive media. She is experienced in working with clients with a wide range of emotional needs including, low self-worth, anxiety, depression, identity issues and the impact of trauma.
Ros holds a Higher Professional Diploma in person-centred counselling and psychotherapy and is a registered member of the BACP. As well as having a private practice at The Awareness Centre, Ros is part of the bereavement support team at St Christopher’s Hospice.
