About Me

Hi my name is Rosa Stevens. I have worked as a Counsellor for a local Counselling Organisation for several years, providing secondary care and a vitally needed counselling service for adults and youth who might otherwise be excluded because of finance or shortfall in service provision. To date, I have played a crucial role in improving the health and wellbeing of several clients between the age of 14 to 83 years. I believe my speciality is working with anxiety, depression, past and current trauma, bereavement, anger management and low self-esteem.

I am an Accredited member of NCS and a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapist, the BACP membership requires for counsellors to take regular Supervision, abide by the Ethical Framework and monitors professional development.  My practice includes full liability insurance and I am registered with ICO, in relation to GDPR.  My liability insurance requires me to keep client's files for 5 years post therapy. Clients can request their clinical notes if they wish however, the information will be safely stored until it will be safely disposed. I am currently training as a Counselling Supervisor. 

During my professional journey, I have developed several therapeutic skills however, my life coaching CPCAB qualification has led me to the interesting world of Life Coaching.  I have tailored life coaching to accommodate the cultural demand.  I appreciate how powerful positive psychology can be however, I believe that it must be used wisely during the therapeutic journey as otherwise it can create further discrepancies in your sense of self, by trigger further anxiety.  I am a member of the BACP Coaching division, I practice Life Coaching within the BACP framework, abiding by ICO - GDPR, liability insurance and Supervision. 

Having worked with young people as a Life Coach and Counsellor, inspired me to embrace my next stage as a safeguarding practitioner.  Assessing safeguarding concerns has enabled me to develop a greater insight in the lives of families and young people.  This journey has led me to focus in offering a service to bridge a gap in our society, helping young people and parents develop emotional intelligence and be able to emotionally self-regulate. Creative mindfulness focuses to enable parents, carer and teachers engage with young people and guide them in developing resilience, emotional regulation and build emotional intelligence, which will help young people communicate more effectively, therefore focuses to prevent mental illness.  I believe creative mindfulness is one of many tools that can help preventing some adverse childhood experiences.
