About

Rochelle Newington

My background in the NHS, dentistry & health care, children and families and experience with mental health, special needs, addiction, anxiety, depression, loneliness, relationship difficulties, bullying, parenting, bereavement & abuse have developed my skills and understanding in these and other areas. I am able to provide a safe, confidential and professional service, offering empathy and compassion without judgement. I offer dedicated supportive time and space for you to be listened to without compromise, to gain new perspectives on yourself, your interactions with others, or work through any concerns or difficult experiences.

 

I believe that our therapeutic relationship can support you through these difficult processes and help you identify areas of difficulty, past and present, supporting you to move forward and discover new perspectives and healthier ways to cope with future difficulties.

 

With Continued Professional Development in bereavement, addiction, working with children, trauma and group work, I am committed to maintain and continually build my professional skills to offer clients. With experience working at Edgware Hospital, Barnet Young Person Service, Cruse Bereavement Service, Norwood Adult Service, and Perry Clayman Project, as well in client’s homes, Skype & telephone services.

Online & Telephone Counselling

How online and telephone counselling works
There are times where you find a face to face counselling session is not possible, for instance with social distancing restrictions, or you find other times it is difficult to manage with your personal and professional commitments, you may have a disability that makes face to face sessions hard to manage or feel uncomfortable with. If you prefer to work online or with a telephone for your counselling,  I am fully qualified and experienced in these methods.


For telephone counselling, you will be given a number to either call on at the prearranged convenient time, or to text so i know you are safe and in a confidential space for me to call you.


For online sessions, you will be sent a secure for Zoom that brings you to an encrypted waiting area, and a securely locked video room.


Your session will last 50 minutes, and if you arrive late, I shall be waiting for you until the end of your session time.


Zoom Sessions
Zoom is a way for you to see your counsellor face to face, and if you wish for your counsellor to see you too, and to engage in therapeutic counselling in a face-to-face session in the comfort of your chosen safe place.


You can be guided through the steps to use zoom if you are new to this, and sessions will be arranged at a mutually convenient time for both you and me. Being able to see me will give you the benefits of a face to face session with the convenience of remote work. The work remains encrypted and nothing remains of our work when the session is ended


Telephone Sessions
This can be similar to zoom and arranged securely through Zoom but without engaging your camera. This allows you to remain somewhat anonymous and is encrypted leaving, nothing remaining of our work when the session is ended.


With either of these options, we shall wear headphones to ensure confidentiality in our session and recommend headphones or earpieces for you if you have them, to ensure your greater privacy.


Benefits

  • Counselling from a convenient location for you, at a time that suits you

  • Secure encryption software offers confidentiality and peace of mind

  • Anonymity as not seen entering counselling rooms

  • Therapy at a time, place and regularity that suits you

  • The ability of some clients to open up with greater ease

  • Access to sessions may be more immediate

  • Flexibility to choose the technology you feel most comfortable with and can vary on each session

Things to Consider

  • Your confidence using technology – what if things go wrong?

  • You may not have a suitable technology

  • You may prefer to meet face to face, or not have a place or equipment to safely access online or telephone counselling

  • You may find it hard expressing your feelings effectively in these methods of counselling

  • You may feel your situation is complex and difficult to work with online or by telephone

Confidentiality
Whether you choose online or telephone, as with face to face, all communication is confidential and safe. You will have our support in setting up to receive our sessions and no sessional communication is stored in any way.
