Welcome to the Listening Room Counselling Service.
I work in a very individual way with both adults, young people and children. I offer a confidential and safe environment to explore thoughts and feelings. Whatever your dilemma, maybe you have suffered a trauma or bereavement and are finding it difficult to cope, maybe you’re suffering with anxiety, depression, self-harm and are dependent on alcohol or drugs. Whether you need help with issues from your past or issues in your everyday life, working on a one-to-one basis at your own pace can be very beneficial.
When we are listened to with empathy, valued and accepted we tend to form a trusting relationship where we are more able to talk about our worries because we do not feel judged.
I believe that by gaining a new insight and understanding of yourself, your relationships, your life and your difficulties. You develop a greater sense of awareness of your behaviour and thinking. With the help of a counsellor you are more likely to see alternative ways of thinking and behaving and explore problems more fully so that you are more able to make decisions and act for yourself enabling you to make positive and lasting changes in your life.
