Mary Wilson B.A. (Psychology), Cert.Ed., P.G.Dip.Integrative Psychotherapy
As a humanistic counsellor I will support you in working through your difficulties in your own way and at your own pace and in finding the solutions that work for you.
I will listen with understanding and acceptance and L will be honest with you, giving you a safe place in which you can explore the difficulties you are experiencing.
- Counselling can help you to unravel your difficulties
- Make sense of the situation that you are in.
- It can help to identify behaviours and ways of being that are useful to you and those that are not useful.
Counselling can help you to find ways of feeling more satisfied with yourself and with your life.
As a counsellor I offer an opportunity for you to talk about yourself and your life having to deal with any expectations: I will accept as you are which will allow you to explore both your past and present situations, relationships, emotions, and behaviour. You may as a result identify some things that you want to change and that you have developed the ability to change.
I am particularly interested in working with trauma especially with survivors of abuse, emotional physical and sexual, and work with the Survivor’s Trust. I have also work with a local community organisation in a more generic counselling role with anxiety and/or depression, relationship difficulties (one-to-one) and many other difficulties that people experience at one time or another
I am passionate about counselling and regard it as a privilege to be able to work with people looking for change in their lives
My service is completely confidential. I work within the BACP ethical framework.
I offer one to one counselling with the flexibility of both daytime and evening appointments in a comfortable friendly environment in Leyland accesible to Preston and Chorley and South Ribble
I offer a free 30-minute initial session so that you can meet me and see how and see how it feels to talk to me.
