Christine Aldridge

Offering both person-centred and psychodynamic counselling for adults.

About me

I am a trained Integrative Counsellor, whereby I work with two different modalities, which are psychodynamic and person-centred theory.

Psychodynamic counselling allows exploration of past experiences, allowing us to think together about how these experiences may be impacting your present life.

Person-centred counselling promotes emphasis on the importance of the relationship between counsellor and client.

I provide an environment of non-judgmental, human connection which can, in itself, promote healing.

What I offer

It takes courage to reach out and to talk about difficulties you might be experiencing in your life.

As an integrative counsellor, I draw on a variety of counselling approaches which allows us to form an adaptable, therapeutic relationship. I am respectful and compassionate regarding mental health and how we can suffer at various points in our lives and I will provide you with a non-judgmental space where you can openly explore what is going on for you in a trusted and confidential environment.

We will work at entirely your own pace.

My aim is to help you achieve a deeper understanding of yourself – to help you explore and understand your feelings and responses, to help you move forward with confidence, self-awareness and acceptance. You know yourself intuitively and I will help you locate what it is you feel you need. You are the expert on your own needs – I will help you explore these, alongside you, in our sessions.

Talking about and exploring experiences and feelings can give you an opportunity to consider the roots of your behaviours and reactions. It can also provide an insight into what is no longer benefiting you in your life. When you can do this with compassion for you – this can bring enormous change.

Please email me if you would like to arrange a free 20 minute telephone call for an informal chat.
