Lynda Mayall Adv Dip Coun. Dip CBT. Registered MBACP Counsellor and Supervisor
Rodley Wellbeing Centre
6A Rodley Lane
I offer a safe confidential place to talk and where you are never judged. I offer you a somewhere you can be yourself. Counselling is about dealing with issues in your life that are preventing you from living a more fulfilled life. Its about helping you deal with the psychological and emotional impact that the issue is having on you and could be affecting those around you.
Counselling can help you learn about thoughts and behaviours that promote the feelings you are having. Believing that you 'cant' does not mean you cant change that thought to I can. I have helped many clients do just that. Many have gone on to successful quality lives with strong relationships and positive self belief.
"Sometimes what you're most afraid of doing is the vary thing that will set you free."
CBT has been proved to work with depression and anxiety. Admitting that you have depression and/or anxiety can be scary in itself. Its time to make that decision to seek help.
With over 25 years experience of inviting clients to talk about their issues at their own pace I have come to understand that sometimes the changes that happen with counselling can benefit the rest of your life.
Rodley Wellbeing Centre is 2 minutes from the ring-road. Near to Horsforth Farsley Headingly Pudsey aeas as well as Bradford. Ample free parking and waiting room.
South Kirkby has a large free car park and is situated on a easy to locate main road near to busses and train station. It is easy to reach from Barnsley, Doncaster, Shafton, Grimethorpe, Hemsworth, Ackworth, Brierley, Cudworth and Thurnscoe areas.
The counselling relationship is important which is why I offer a free 30 minute telephone or face to face appointment with no obligation to continue.
I work individually and with couples and families. I believe that you are the one to direct how we work together. I will listen and help you change thoughts and behaviours that conflict with who you want to be. Sometimes a thought or behaviour is the result of past traumas or childhood experiences so having a safe place and someone you can trust to unpack your worries cares and issues is essential for your well-being. With my support we can travel your journey together to the person you want to be.
