About Me

Pamela Reilly

I am a passionate, experienced and confident therapist, with many years of life experience and knowledge. I believe that we all have a natural ability and the potential for personal growth and development to become the best versions of ourselves. Of recent unprecedented times, life as we once knew it has changed for so many people, the pandemic brought forth isolation, fear, anxiety, depression, loss and grief, and overwhelming feelings.  This, encompassed with life’s day-to-day challenges can present many hurdles to get over. When we experience such difficulties, we need someone to support and guide us through these challenging times.

 

However, my journey wasn’t always easy and my own challenges and personal experiences have led me to do the work I do today. My passion lies in personal development and individual growth.  I love helping people facilitate positive change in their lives, not just through changes in their behaviours and thinking but also those who over time, work through trauma and loss.

I am open, honest, transparent and a trustworthy counsellor able to offer a warm, caring and confidential space where one can explore personal difficulties safely, without judgement and at your own pace. 

 

I recognise that finding a counsellor may be unsettling for some but, here, you are taking the first steps towards helping yourself and in managing your difficulties going forward. 

 

I can help with a wide range of issues, including addiction and recovery, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, bereavement, loss and grief.

My Practice

I work with an integrative approach to counselling, customising a range of modalities and interventions to support my client’s specific needs.  I provide a safe, genuine and empathetic approach, teamed with the BACP ethical framework to which I adhere to, this means I am always working with the client’s best interests at heart.

 

My core modality is person-centred therapy, which focuses on you the client as it is our belief that we all have the ‘potential’ for ’emotional and psychological growth’ in reaching goals of personal fulfilment and enrichment.

 

I use skills and techniques from other approaches such as, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt, Existential and Psychodynamic, enabling awareness, and encouragement for clients, helping them towards making informed decisions within their daily lives.

 

I offer a safe, non-judgemental environment of acceptance, giving clients the space to explore and utilise their own strengths and personal identity. I will facilitate this process, providing vital support for my clients.

 

Diversity, I have worked across diverse multi-cultural communities, gaining valuable insight and a wealth of knowledge. I have worked in East London’s most ethnically diverse Borough’s of Tower Hamlets followed by Waltham Forest and Newham.  

 

As society continues to change and grow with more people identifying as belonging to a minority ethnic group, I completed Race relations training to gain an empathic understanding of multicultural differences, values, beliefs and traditions.
