Adrian Felsing

Counsellor

Bio & Qualifications

My name is Ade and I am a qualified counsellor, registered with the BACP.

I have experience of working in various fields of mental health. This is an area that I am very passionate about.
 

I have also worked in addiction, bereavement and with sexual traumas.

“Trauma” is very subjective and personal to an individual. One cannot compare traumas, for they are of their own experiencing and consequence to the person that has had it. If something has caused you pain or anguish, that is a trauma.

I would walk alongside you as we explored yours…

What is a Counsellor?

“A counsellor is a qualified individual who uses counselling methods to assist people in managing and overcoming mental and emotional issues.”

  • The process that occurs when a client and counsellor set aside time in order to explore difficulties which may include the stressful or emotional feelings of the client
  • The act of helping the client to see things more clearly, possibly from a different viewpoint. This can enable the client to focus on feelings, experiences or behaviour, with a goal to facilitating positive change
  • A relationship of trust. Confidentiality is paramount to successful counselling.

Professional counsellors will usually explain their policy on confidentiality, they may, however, be required by law to disclose information if they believe that there is a risk to life.

Counselling is a safe space to explore your feelings and processes in anon-judgemental, empathic, compassionate and patient environment. You decide what to bring and when to bring it. You decide how long you wish to engage in the therapeutic process.  You are in control of you.

What is Trauma:

Trauma is the physical, emotional and psychological response when a person experiences high levels of fear or stress without having the chance to escape or mobilise (move away). Trauma is a stress response that remains frozen in time within the person.

Having experienced trauma myself, I am fully aware of the difficulties there are in being ready to talk about whatever it is that you may wish to discuss. Then there is the problem of ‘where do I go?’ to address this issue.  Thankfully in this day and age there are many options available.

What is most important is that the relationship between counsellor and client is such that a therapeutic relationship is achieved and maintained, facilitating the movement of any presenting issue. This can only be done with trust, experience, resilience, empathy and self-awareness.

I have all of these.

As do you.
