About me


My Counselling Practice

My name is Lyla and I am a qualified counsellor. You may have visited the Counselling Directory because someone has suggested that counselling may help you or, you may be having difficulties in some area of your life and you feel you need some support with this. Whatever your reason for visiting my profile today I may be able to help.

When we feel depressed, stressed, sad, lonely or anxious it's because our body is trying to tell us something. Our bodies are capable of handling some stress, however, when stress levels become too high we can begin to experience low self worth, fears and anxieties that impact on our lives.  If you feel as if you are struggling to cope with life at the moment perhaps talking this through with a trained and qualified counsellor can help.

Counselling sessions will give you time to explore your life and your relationships at your own pace.  More often than not, this can be upsetting and painful, but part of my work is to support you through this and help you to understand more about yourself.

Over time you will develop personal insights and self awareness about your situation.  Our work together may lead you to make changes in your life, or as is sometimes the case, come to terms with those things that may not change.

As a counsellor I am committed to working within recognised guidelines and have regular supervision with an experienced supervisor, who is also a qualified counsellor working within the BACP's Ethical Framework and Guidelines.
