Rose Stephen Integrative psychotherapist , KT13
Welcome to my profile page. I am a psychotherapist and I am also in the final stage of becoming a CBT therapist. I am registered with British Association for Psychotherapist (BACP) and British Association of Behavioural Cognitive Psychotherapist (BABCP
My professional journey began over 13 years ago in a forensic Hospital supporting people with mental health and drug/alcohol problems, then moved to NHS and I was based at youth offending service working with young offender affected by alcohol and substance misuse. Later on I moved to children and family service where I worked with children and their families affected by alcohol and substance misuse. At the same time I was working with children who are affected by their parent’s alcohol and substance misuse. I have also worked for drug and alcohol services working with adults affected by alcohol and substance misuse.
Alongside my private practice as the founder of Listentome counselling practice, I also work for NHS mental health, with people experiences with first episodes of psychosis, depression and anxieties. In addition I also work with IESO digital health, working with clients with different mental health problems including Panic disorder, General Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), health anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
How could I help you?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Sometimes our thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap us in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you deal with your difficulties in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. In our session we will be working together to determine your goals for therapy and learning different techniques to help you achieve your goal.
The person-centred beliefs that every human being has actualizing tendency to grow, to develop and to reach its full potential. The person who understands clients’ difficulties is the client themselves. Therefore my task as your therapist will be to provide you with the right conditions which are: empathy, unconditional positive regards and genuineness, where you will feel free, safe and strong enough to talk about your difficulties without feeling judged.
What kinds of problems could I help you with?
I work with teenagers, young people, adults who are experiencing a range of difficulties including: alcohol and substance misuse problems, relationship issues, sexual abuse, bereavement, loss, depression, anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, General anxieties, obsessive-compulsive disorder, worry and perfectionism, anger and aggression, schizophrenia and other psychoses, personality disorders, post traumatic disorder, self-harm, paranoia, low self-esteem, and work or life stress.
I hold expertise skills in providing evidence-based practice in accordance with National Institute of Excellence (NICE) guidelines and the research evidence base for common difficulties experienced such as anxiety and depression.
Not only do I offer brief interventions but I also offer longer term or open-ended therapy treatment. This allows individual to be flexible to choose what treatment sorts them best. This can be particularly helpful as it lends an individual the time and space to explore difficulties that may be experienced in different relationships or situations encountered in their lives. It can aid personal development, insight and growth through the process of therapy.
Using evidenced based practice with a focus on the importance of a trusting, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship, I can guide an individual or couple through the process of therapy to achieve their goal of therapy so that they can live to the fullness of their potential. I am a dedicated practitioner and am committed to showing genuine concern and support for those in my care.
