Rosie Brass creates a safe and non-judgemental space for clients to truly be themselves and discuss the problems they are experiencing at their own pace. Using an integrative approach that draws on person-centred and psychodynamic theories, Rosie helps the client explore their emotions and perception of what is going on for them in the ‘here and now’, and how the past could be influencing the present.
She believes in the autonomy of the client, and that the client has the resources and answers within themselves. Through self-exploration and self-awareness, they can find their way to get to where they want to be.
Prior to her counselling training, Rosie’s varied work experience ranged from customer service to hospitality, and for the past four years she has worked in the tech industry. This has given her great understanding of the pressures which occur in fast paced and demanding work environments, and the knock-on effect it can have on a person’s wellbeing, if they are using unhelpful coping mechanisms to deal with stress.
Rosie is passionate about wellbeing at work and has found that being part of the Mental Health First Aider program (which trains its members to identify and assist employees experiencing common mental health issues) has given her deeper insight into working with clients presenting with anxiety and/or depression.
Rosie is a trainee counsellor working towards a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. As a student member of the BACP, she follows the BACP ethical framework. She works with The Awareness Centre’s low-cost counselling service in Clapham.
