Anne-Marie Mills Bsc (hons) Psych Dip.Couns MBPsS
There are times in our lives when we struggle and could really do with some help.
I offer a confidential, safe and trusting therapeutic space to allow you to say the ‘unsayable’, being heard without judgement so that you can explore issues that you are unhappy with.
There are many reasons why a person may want to see a counsellor such as relationship difficulties, stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement, life events and those times where life may seem overwhelming. Counselling can be helpful as you can talk about yourself in a way that you often cannot do with family and friends. It also offers a different perspective exploring assumptions and patterns of behaviour that you may wish to change or that you were not aware of before.
I am a person-centred counsellor which means I try to step alongside you and understand what it is like to face the challenges you are going through. Working together we can look at the blocks that are getting in the way of you living the life you want to lead. I may also use other techniques and theories such as CBT and mindfulness if you feel they may benefit you.
I am passionate about helping people to resolve painful feelings and challenges. I understand that the initial step of accepting help can be of hardest. However difficult it may be, it is a sign of strength which will support you through the counselling process.
