Holly Dickinson

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS13-00109

Location: Stowmarket

My background is varied, having worked in education, residential care and youth work before embarking on my counsellor training. I currently work for a youth based charity as well as private practice in Stowmarket.

Although my initial training was in Psychotherapeutic counselling with adults, I retrained to also be able to offer counselling to children and adolescents. Life can be challenging and confusing at the best of times but particularly when we are growing up and trying to make sense of ourselves and the world around us. I will offer your child a safe space to be and gently explore whatever it is they are struggling with.

I gently challenge where appropriate and invite you to begin to explore relationships and behaviours, without judgement, encouraging you to treat yourself with compassion and kindness, in order to heal and grow.

The relationship between the client and counsellor is key to the therapeutic process and counselling isn’t all about talking. We can learn so much about ourselves through connecting with our playful and creative side. Sometimes things can be difficult to verbalise and using creative methods can help us to explore our feelings in a safe way. This is something I can explore with you if you feel comfortable doing so.
I attend regular supervision and continuing professional development, including safeguarding, as part of my ongoing practice. I hold professional insurance and an enhanced DBS certificate.

Please contact me on 07944 041520 to book a free 30 minute initial phonecall to discuss what you are looking for from counselling and whether I will be the right counsellor for you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
