Healing Journey Counselling - Heather Colman MBACP
As a therapeutic counsellor based in Street, Somerset, I offer a safe, supportive place where you can choose to explore anything that is important to you in confidence...always at your own pace in a caring environment and without fear of being judged or misunderstood.
You may want to deal with specific issues you are finding challenging such as bereavement, relationship difficulties, divorce, separation, ill health or bullying (either at home or in the workplace).
You may be experiencing feelings such as loneliness, confusion, sadness, stress, anger, anxiety, fear or depression
You may not be able to put a name to the way you are feeling but simply know that you don't feel good.
Whatever your reason for seeking counselling, there really is no issue that is too trivial...just knowing that you could do with some support is valid reason enough! Counselling will help you gain a new clarity and understanding of your situation, empowering you to make constructive choices or changes that will, in turn, have a positive effect on your wellbeing.
The Next Step...
If you feel that counselling may be of help to you, it's useful to find out enough information to enable you to make an informed choice. I aim to provide clear, helpful information so that you can decide on the best way forward for you. If you would like to speak to me in connection with counselling, would like to find out if I am able to help you or would like to make an appointment, do please contact me. Choosing a counsellor is a very personal decision and I will be happy to speak with you so that you can decide if I am the right person to meet your needs.
Please note, I aim to reply to any enquiries within 48 hours, often sooner. If you have requested a response by email, do check your spam box if you haven't heard from me. Added to this, protecting confidentiality is important to me and so if your preferred method of contact is telephone, I won't leave a message unless you specifically give consent.
