Further information

We all need emotional support from time to time and we can't always turn to family and friends. We will sit in a comfortable room where you will talk and I will listen and I will reflect back what I have heard so we can try to make sense of your issues. It can be helpful to talk to someone in confidence who is impartial and non-judgemental. These conversations can help us to think about difficult feelings or situations and we may see more clearly how to resolve them. Some of the issues people come to counselling to discuss include feelings of loss, low mood or worry, others may be having difficulty handling bereavement, separation and relationships at home and work. I work in a quiet countryside location near Melton Mowbray, our first session will be about getting to know each other I will let you know about confidentiality and the BACP code of ethics that I work within. I know this sounds a little formal to start with but our following weekly sessions will be about building a relationship of trust which can take some time but during that process you will be listened to with empathy, caring & understanding.
