I’m Dianne, and I specialise in helping people overcome their anxieties and limiting beliefs.
I am passionate about empowering people to become all they can be. I have become aware not only of the physical wellbeing of a person, but also their mental health having worked in both the private health sector and the NHS.
I observed that giving people time, unconditional positive regard and listening, has had an empowering effect on them.
I have been counselling for several years now in a variety of settings such as:
- WMRSASC (West Mercia Rape & Sexual Support Centre) where I have worked for over three years with Men, Women and Children who have experienced sexual abuse and rape. I have had extensive training to enable me to support survivors who can present with PTSD, Complex PTSD, OCD, Anxiety, Fear, Numbness, Isolation, ME, Fibromyalgia and other symptoms that are often the consequences of what has been done to them.
- Place2be a Uk Charity that works within schools to provide Mental Health and wellbeing support for children of 5 and upwards, through providing a safe space where play therapy and working with metaphor is used to engage and enable children to open up and work through any issues they may have.
- Living Rooms is a Hereford charity, which has a community cafe and food larder. It also provides a safe space, where counselling is available, along with a drop in area that has an array of crafts, games and confidence building workshops available to all.
- A New Hope Counselling – My own private practice where Walk/talk therapy, telephone, video and face-to-face counselling will be available.
