Talking to a stranger about your situation, especially for the first time, can feel like a daunting prospect. However, certain aspects of your life may have become difficult, distressing or too overwhelming to deal with on your own. Perhaps you feel stuck in a situation and not sure where to go or what to do next and would like to talk to someone about it. Whatever the situation, taking those first steps to talk to someone takes courage but if you are reading this you are already making steps towards making a change.
Perhaps you are dealing with unexpected life events such as bereavement, redundancy, relationship issues such as breakdown, divorce or affairs, issues at work such as stress or bullying, have low self-esteem and not feeling good about yourself. Maybe you want to understand yourself better and feel more confident.
Counselling may help you see things more clearly or see things from a different perspective. It allows you to talk openly and freely which you can't always do with family and friends, however well supported or intended, they may offer advice based on how they see the world and perhaps tell you what you ‘should’ and ‘shouldn’t’ do. What would it be like to do what you wanted or even know what you want?
I offer a safe, neutral, non-judgmental and confidential environment where you can talk about your situation and feel heard; you can say how you truly feel which empowers you to make the changes you want. Whilst I do not offer advice or tell you what you should do, I do offer you assistance with gaining a better understanding of your situation and yourself in terms of your feelings and behaviour which can build self awareness and confidence and help find different ways to live your life more positively. Life is a journey and in counselling you might learn new skills that you can apply for yourself afterwards.
I am an integrative counsellor which means I can draw on different theoretical perspectives which gives me the flexibility to tailor therapy to suit your individual requirements and needs. I have experience in a variety of situations such as various forms of anxiety, depression, redundancy and relationship issues and self-harm. I have worked with adults and with young people. I have also worked a corporate business world and understand stress and pressure in relation to the corporate environment.
My practice is situated in Stone and has parking and in easy reaches from the 280 bus route. I offer a short no obligation phone call to discuss your situation to see if I’m the right counsellor for you.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work within their Ethical Framework which provides me guidelines for working safely and ethically within a counselling relationship.
