Yvonne Quaintrell

Counsellor & Hypnotherapist

Dominic Quaintrell



The aim of counselling is to allow a person to talk through their problems with someone who is trained to listen and not judge. I will take the time to fully understand your feelings and thoughts. This can be really helpful, as this simple process can allow you to find answers which you can use to cope better with whatever is going on for you.

There are so many different types of counselling it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. To help with this, below is a brief description of the talking therapies available through me.

The Person-Centred Approach
In this approach to counselling, I will work with you in the belief that you are a unique person and you are the expert on what you have lived through. I will take the time to appreciate fully the thoughts and feelings which you have. The idea is that you will take me on a journey through your experience and together we will make sense of your problem. I will not tell you what to talk about or how to think – you can talk about anything which is on your mind.

Just having another person to talk to in this way is helpful and leads to positive changes in you.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Using this approach, I will also treat you as an individual who is the expert. The difference here is that we will work in partnership and focus on more targeted issues with which you would like support. We will discuss your thoughts (cognitions) and feelings and how these can make you behave in certain ways. We all have thoughts and behaviours which are helpful and some which are unhelpful to us. In CBT, I will support you every step of the way to find a focused and realistic solution to your problem.

Whichever approach appeals to you the most, you get to decide on which path we take, whether this is one or both of them. If you would like a chat to discuss this further, please contact us.
