Counsellor Profile: Evelyn Trotman

Are you struggling at present with challenges that seem too great? It is key that these challenges be acknowledged – and supported – in a safe, non-judgmental environment, focusing on relationship and understanding.

The ultimate purpose of counselling is to not only have a space to explore the challenge, but to build internal resources for the future.

My interest in counselling began early, when I was fascinated by everyone’s life stories and needs. During my many years in practice, I have worked with young people, adults, and couples, covering the entire life cycle with all its challenges.

During counselling, feelings, sensations and thoughts are explored, and patterns are identified. It is good to have strategies to help with issues right away, but it is also paramount to identify and tackle root causes for longer-term benefit. Ideally, getting in touch with your inherent ability provides the best answers for any difficulty.

Having been born and raised outside the UK, I can bring a particularly empathetic approach to those from other cultures and backgrounds who feel marginalised in any way.

I am an integrative therapist who employs various methods of therapy such as psychodynamic, relational, and person-centred – depending on what best suits the individual client’s needs. Creative methods of therapy such as drawing and sand tray can also be an effective and powerful means of reaching deep-seated issues, although of course they are only one of many approaches that I use with my clients.

Additionally, I have a special interest in working with people from particular faith-based groups, or indeed those who pursue any or all forms of spirituality (or none at all).
