Zoe Behennah Dip. Couns, BSc (Hons)
Sometimes life doesn't go the way we expected, it throws things at us that we never thought it would and we can be left feeling stuck or dissatisfied.
These can be dramatic events or a build up of life's stresses... or perhaps we can't quite understand how we got here, we just know that something isn't quite as we would like it to be.
This is where counselling can help.
Through exploring our thoughts, feelings and experiences we can start to make sense of them and uncover what it is that we want, what it is that we can change or come to terms with to allow us to move forwards.
How often does someone listen to you, uninterrupted, in a space that is safe and focused entirely on your needs?
As your counsellor my role is not to advise you or tell you how to live your life. Your decisions and choices aren't there for me to judge or impose my opinions on. I am simply there to listen and help you make sense of your own thoughts and feelings, with the view to working together to find solutions and a way to move forward that's right for you.
If this sounds like something that could help then please call or email me and I will be in touch within 24 hours to answer any questions you may have and discuss the next steps.

I am a member of the BACP and therefore adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework (2016) which provides a set of guidelines ensuring safety and a professional standard of working for both myself and my clients.
I work using a Person Centred Approach, meaning that you, the client, is kept at the centre of the work. We work collaboratively, in a way that suits you, focusing on your needs and agenda and working at your pace. My role is to guide you and help you explore and make sense of your thoughts, feelings and experiences in order to find solutions and better your own understanding. Confidentially is key to our relationship and all sessions are kept between us.
