Trainee Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist (Student BACP Member)
Millicent is currently training and studying towards a MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Derby. Her completion of an undergraduate in Psychology started her on the path to pursue a career in the caring and listening role of Psychotherapy. She is driven and enthusiastic about providing support to those experiencing difficulty through a non-judgemental, empathic approach. She uses a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment Theory and Person-Centred Therapy in an integrative way, along with an empathic and non-judgemental approach. Millicent frequently volunteers for the crisis text help-line Shout, in which she supports others dealing with difficult times.
Some of the difficulties Millicent has experiencing of supporting are:
- Concerns & Emotions linked to COVID-19
- Suicidal Thoughts / Attempts
- Friendships and Bullying
- Abuse (emotional, sexual, substance)
Millicent wishes to further her counselling compassion and abilities by specialising in sleep, self-image and eating related concerns in the near future. Later this year, she will begin to engage in volunteering with a charity called Sustainable Land Trust, supporting those with debilitating social anxiety, ADHD, and Autism, helping to widen her understanding and skills to be inclusive and diverse when it comes to supporting others. Millicent holds a DBS and is a student member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). She follows their ethical framework and guidelines by means of engaging in professional development courses and fortnightly supervision to further her development as a Therapist. Millicent practices from the Sunrise Wellbeing Therapy Centre where she provides 1:1 face to face or video call therapy sessions for Young People (16+) and Adults.
