We’ve a great team here of counsellors and psychotherapists, supported by our dedicated admin and management team. Between us we have a wealth of experience and have worked with thousands of clients. Most of us are fully qualified, although some of the team are still in training and work with us on their placement. We have regular further training to keep our skills up to date and to expand our knowledge in our particular areas of interest and our clinical leads make sure that wherever possible the clients are allocated to the counsellor that’s right for them. Most of our counsellors work from our main base in Madeley, Telford, but some are also based in local schools and others are sometimes able to see clients in Shrewsbury.
We asked some of the team to tell us a bit about why they work for Impact and here are just a few of their answers:
“A client once said to me “You helped me to see a future I never thought I’d have again”. Working with those who’ve suffered from sexual violence or abuse I see my job as helping them process what’s happened and finding their hopes for the future.” T ~ Counsellor
“Much of my work is with gambling addicts, it’s great helping them get back in control of their habit and looking at what is underlying the addiction.” K ~ Counsellor
“Working with Impact gives me the opportunity to work with people on lower incomes. A lot of my work here is with children who wouldn’t otherwise get an opportunity to work with a counsellor.” A ~ Counsellor
