I understand how scary it can be approaching a counsellor, admitting that you need help... it need not be with me as I walk with you gently through the process. It's easy to begin, just phone, text or email me and we can work together to find a convenient time for us to hold our first session together. When we have this session we will discuss what you want to get from the counselling, how often we should see each other and any other details you would like to know. I'm happy to answer any questions even if you don't come for therapy.
I became a counsellor due to suffering from my own difficult life experiences and I always thought counselling was for others who needed it, not me, but I was wrong. It was a process that brought me from beyond back into being. I now firmly believe in it and I can give others the opportunity to experience how it feels to be able to talk to someone who cares, and will listen.
So don't be afraid to give it a try with me. I can offer one to one sessions, or use Skype/Messenger, these will be in a confidential, non judgmental, empathic space where you can share your difficulties.
I offer a free initial session from internet referrals, this allows you to decide if you would like to proceed. It also gives you the opportunity to ask anything you would like to and to decide if you are ready to continue with a therapeutic relationship.
