Marion Summer Swailes, MBACP (Accred)
For most of us there are times in our lives when we can feel overwhelmed by painful or difficult feelings. Counselling can help in these situations.
I have worked with clients with the following issues:
relationship difficulties, family breakdown, bereavement, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, feelings of anger, isolation, loneliness, difficulty coping with loss or change, lack of life purpose, work stress, bullying, self-harm, sexual or emotional abuse and unresolved painful feelings from the past.
Counselling offers an opportunity:
to talk confidentially with a professional therapist in a safe space; to build a relationship of trust where painful feelings can be expressed, sensitively explored and understood; to develop your inner resources and to become more empowered.
Person Centred Counselling:
I follow a person-centred approach to counselling, - the essential qualities of which are to create a safe, supportive and therapeutic environment, a total acceptance of the person, a desire to be empathic, and to understand that person, and a commitment to being genuine or 'real' in the relationship.
