My name is Sheila Pregnall and I have been a practising counsellor/psychotherapist in Swindon for the past 25 years. I work as a therapist and clinical supervisor in primary care in the NHS and in a number of voluntary sector agencies, as well as in private practice.
I have a background in education, training and the arts. I draw on a number of different psychotherapeutic models including:
client centred/humanistic-which allows you the client to arrive at your own solutions and make the changes that you feel are needed
psychodynamic-which helps you understand how problems occuring in the present link with earlier experiences
arts based therapy-which uses the arts to gain acccess to your current situation and to issues/patterns that may be unconscious
cognitive behavioural therapy-which helps change those behaviours and ways of thinking that are unhelpful to you.
I am committed to providing in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment in which you can feel able to freely explore whatever is causing you concern.
I work with both individuals and couples. This can be on an open-ended basis, or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with:
How Counselling/Psychotherapy Can Help
There are times in most of our lives, often in periods of significant change or key transitions, when even if we have the support of friends/family, this is not sufficient or appropriate. I provide an independent and professional context in which issues can be explored, new perspectives gained and unhelpful patterns changed.
My psychotherapy practice is in Eastrop, Highworth, within easy reach of Swindon, Faringdon and Lechlade and Fairford. Highworth is in North Wiltshire,very near to the borders with Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire
