Are you worried about your drinking? Are concerned about your use of drugs?
Alcohol and drugs like cocaine and cannabis for example, can sometimes appear to be a harmless way to relax, socialise and cope with unwanted thoughts and feelings. Unfortunatley, using in this way can sometimes turn into a problem especially if physical and psychological dependency develops and you find yourself using alcohol or drugs to cope.
I can help you with:
- Support to control drinking,
Support to become abstinent,
Counselling to familly, partners and friends
I offer Telephone and Online counselling as another therapeutic service.
Online counselling is done over the internet by either writing emails or VOIP (Online Live counselling) through Skype. The online service can appeal to those who are seeking flexible therapeutic support to fit in and around work and home commitments.
Some clients have found online counselling supportive because it offers:
No need to visit or meet with counsellor at their premises,
Altenative way to traditional counselling if you have difficulty talking to someone,
Support without a contract,
Flexible support and guidance,
Living abroad or on vacation.
Interested in using an alternative method to help your emotional or physical symtoms?
I was trained at the Yuan Traditional Medcine College and I'm qualified to practice 5 point(Yuan) and 7 point (Jing). This involves me inserting up to 5 small needles in each ear to minimise psychological and physical symptoms like;
anxiety, stress, depression, calming the mind, centring, insomnia, reducing blood pressure, harmonisng the liver and much more...
You can choose to have auricular acupuncture combined with counselling or as a therapy on it's own.
I work with adolescence and adults and I can offer day/evening and Saturday sessions.
