Life. Sometimes everything flows and life feels great. And at other times life events can be thrown at us and we feel overwhelmed and out of control.
Changes in life can be sudden and unexpected - crisis can ensue. At other times, change can be more gradual, however it can still be difficult to cope with those life transitions when they happen.
Change can bring up feelings of fear, loss and anger. It can also have the habit of bringing up old unresolved issues which often compound difficult feelings.
On the other hand, feeling 'stuck' is the flip side of change - we seek change and yet for some reason we are not able to manifest what we desire. Frustration and depression can be the result.
It is during these times of change, crisis or feeling stuck where some extra support can help. This is when counselling can be useful.
I can offer you the support you need. More than this, the clarity and insight I offer can help you see things in different ways, and this can all add up to ease the difficulties faced. Simply the process of talking to someone who is not immediately linked to your life can have great beneficial effects.
My name is Audrey, and I am a fully trained counsellor. I work in an integrative way, which means that I use several different models of counselling - tailored to your presenting needs. I can offer creative techniques as well as CBT. I have a passion for counselling and for working with people who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.
I am a gentle and empathic individual, yet also offer strength and insight. I enjoy working with a wide range of people who come to me with a wide range of different issues. My clients tell me that I am easy to talk to.
I have worked at the Plymouth University Student Counselling service as well as Surestart Children's Centres.
I offer a free introductory session in which you can find out a bit more about me, and we can see whether we can work together. Whatever your reason to contact a counsellor, give me a call or send me an email and we can have a chat about what would be involved in starting some counselling sessions with me.
