Work during the week and need Counselling on a Saturday? Why not give me a call?
Are you at a difficult point in your life or perhaps feeling a little overwhelmed? Together we can find a way forward, finding your inner strengths and resources, developing new, or better, ways of coping.
Deciding to have counselling can be daunting but acknowledging that you need help is a sign of strength and courage. Choosing a counsellor you feel comfortable with is essential. I hope to put you at ease and enable you to feel safe and supported in a non-judgemental, confidential space where together we can explore what is on your mind.
Do you feel dissatisfied with your life or an aspect of it?
Sometimes we have a vague sense that something isn’t quite right and needs to change. Counselling may help you make sense of the confusion. You do not need to be in crisis, in fact counselling can be part of a wellness plan that helps prevent crisis and could improve the quality of your life.
Do you want to beat anxiety and depression?
Counselling could help you to get in touch with the emotions and circumstances underlying your depression and anxiety, to express and make sense of them, developing new ways at looking at yourself and the world around you.
One of the most powerful actions you can take in combating both is to understand the role of thinking and how it can affect your mood. Although you may not be able to control how you feel, you can learn to control how you think. Learning to recognise negative thoughts means you can learn to dispute them and give yourself a better chance of avoiding depression and anxiety.
How could I benefit from counselling?
- Offload your worries in a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space
- Help with coming to terms with your situation
- Break unhelpful patterns of negative thinking and behaviour
- Develop new, or better, coping skills
- Become a better functioning individual
- Uncover and resolve hidden conflicts which may be causing your distress
- Develop the skills and tools to cope with future challenges
