Hello and Welcome

Are you looking for Change? Then perhaps I can help?

Four times a year the seasons change, therefore change is a natural part of our lives.  However, often we relate to this as a source of distress rather than embracing this as a positive opportunity to acquire something new about our lives.

My name is Pauline Vonsild and I am a Counsellor in Wakefield (Newmillerdam), West Yorkshire.  I offer short-term counselling, long term therapy, supervision, training and organisational development business consultancy and change management.​

I am a Registered Counsellor and Accredited Member of BACP (Member No 024095), which means that I abide by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice and have qualified with a high standard of training.  I have been providing counselling and supervision through the NHS for 11 years, as well as having managed psychological services.   I am also NICE Trained and qualified to provide Counselling for Depression (CfD).  I have additionally been in Private Practice for a further 9 years bringing my experience to some 20 years+ in total.

My approach to counselling is from a Client Centred perspective, which values empathic understanding and unconditional positive regard.  I strive to provide an environment which is positive and non-judgemental, safe and trusting, enabling you to be who you really are within the counselling space in order to support your exploration of even the hardest of issues.  I endeavour at all times  to enable you to improve your well-being and self development.  Where helpful and appropriate I will also use CBT skills where this will benefit a client's wellbeing.

This website aims to provide you with all the information you need when deciding if you would like to contact me.  Please do not be afraid to ask any questions without obligation, and in confidence, by going to my contacts page.​
