Relationship Counselling Sittingbourne
My Name is Maria Priddey and I am a fully qualified and an experienced Couple Counsellor based at Relationship Counselling Kent’s Sittingbourne practice. I have a Level 4 Diploma in ‘Therapeutic Counselling’ and I am registered with the BACP (British Association Counsellors & Psychotherapists) so therefore abide by their code of ethics.
My core approach to therapy is “Person Centred”. Which emphasis the belief that every person has the capacity to fulfil his or her own potential. I also practice the ‘integrative’ approach, which means I draw upon different theoretical approaches to allow me to tailor my work to suit each couple’s unique situation.
I understand it can be difficult to take the decision to reach out for help with your relationship. However, rest assured, I will be there to support you both, every step of the way.
At the beginning of our first session, I will ask you what you hope to achieve out of the therapy. Whether you are hoping to make your relationship work better than it currently is or perhaps you would like me to help you separate more amicably. At this point, you might feel unsure or you might have different answers and that is okay, we will work together to help you find clarity.
My approach to relationship therapy
I offer a safe, confidential space in order for you both to work through the problems in your relationship. Helping uou find answers to any questions you may have by encouraging you to look at your feelings. I will support you in finding a greater understanding of yourself as an individual as well as within your relationship. You will be empowered to explore change and in turn find a way of moving forward, in whichever way you choose.
Each session will be guided by you. Which means you will have complete autonomy to decide what we discuss. You will be in control of when you are ready to talk about parts of you and your relationship. Although I will be there to guide the sessions and help you both ‘really’ lisen to each other’s points of view. You don’t necessarily have to like, or agree, with each other’s perspectives. However, by understanding them, goes a long way in removing any hurt, anger or resentment which may have built up over the years. It is your opportunity to talk and to be heard
I consider myself warm, down to earth and non-judgemental. Which will hopefully enable you both to feel comfortable enough to talk freely, openly and honestly with me. I will ensure you feel valued and comfortable during our sessions, helping you have a better understanding of each other. So you are able to work together to achieve a better way of being.
I am a member of the BACP, working within their ethical framework. I also attend monthly clinical supervision and further training in specific areas as required. My professional indemnity/public liability insurance is always up to date.
