Valerie Lee MBACP (Accredited)
You may be considering counselling for many different reasons. Perhaps you are suffering from depression or anxiety, or feeling devastated following the ending of a relationship. But you may not have any one specific reason, more a nagging sense of emptiness in your life and a difficulty in feeling emotionally connected to others.
I am a fully-trained counsellor experienced in working with a wide range of issues. I provide a warm, safe, confidential space where you can be really heard and understood. This in turn will enable you to explore painful and difficult feelings, secure in the knowledge that I will empathise with you and not be judgemental. This can lead to a new self-awareness, enabling you to break away from old patterns of behaviour and facilitate change and growth so you can lead a more fulfilled life.
