Pamela Brear Counselling and Consultancy Services

I seek to provide an atmosphere which is respectful and non-judgemental in which each person is able to feel that their experience is understood and valued. My approach to counselling enables clients to deeply explore the painful experiences that may, for example, underlie anger, shame, depression, relationship issues and the complex effects of trauma. My approach supports the growth of new ways of engaging in relationship and living more productively.

    This therapeutic process supports the growth of new ways of engaging in relationship with oneself and others, and living more creatively.

    I use an integrated approach in my counselling to enable exploration of conscious and unconscious behaviours, emotional experience, and beliefs and attitudes. I value working with the whole person - feelings, mind, body and spirit.

    I draw on a range of theory to understand how to facilitate processes of change and growth. These include theory that addresses human development, personality and character, patterns of attachment, and contemporary psychodynamic theory.
