Areas I work in
Sometimes we face challenges or periods of change that rock our foundation often leaving us feeling vulnerable and isolated. You may feel stuck, at a crossroads in your life, trying to come to terms with a challenging situation or struggling with your self worth and self esteem.
Counselling provides a safe platform for you to verbalise your thoughts without judgement. I do not offer advice or solutions; I simply help to facilitate the process by enabling you to speak freely, in a confidential and secure space.
The counselling process may enable you to see things from a different perspective, link habitual behaviour and help you to think and feel differently, It can also offer insight, allowing you to change repetitive patterns or reconcile with past experiences.
The following are some of the areas I work with: self esteem, lack of confidence, bullying, depression, anxiety, stress, impostor syndrome, loneliness, anger, family conflict, grief, loss, attachment, infidelity and relationship issues; this list is not exhaustive.
I work with individuals over 18 and older adults. I am based in east London and Essex.
I also offer online therapy.
Pauline Warn B A Hons (MBACP)
I have a first class honours degree in Counselling (Integrative Therapy). I am a qualified, registered, experienced counsellor. I use an integrative approach which means I have an underlying theoretical foundation but incorporate techniques and skills from other theories which enables me to adapt to differing, individual, client needs.
I currently manage my private practice and mentoring service. I work for a community education/wellbeing project, a training provider together with the Department of Working Pensions delivering workshops. I am a partner counsellor for a charity who support women or those identifying as female, who have experienced gender based harm
I have breadth of experience, including working for an acute NHS service, in a prison setting, mental health charity and as a counsellor, mentor and clinical placement coordinator in both further/higher education. I have also taught on a counselling course at an inner city college.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and therefore adhere to their ethical framework which requires me to participate in continuing professional development and engage in clinical supervision.
