Are you struggling to cope with life's problems? Do you need time and space to reflect on your life in a safe and trusting professional relationship?
Counselling can offer the opportunity to reflect on all aspects of your life, a time to release emotions, explore thoughts and beliefs, and consider changes you would like to make.
I offer Counselling based on the CWR model of Christian Counselling. Emphasis is on the whole person, identifying how the problem is affecting the person physically, emotionally, rationally, behaviourally,and spiritually. Exploration of these areas can help a person to move forward and discover the freedom to grow.
Although this Integrative model is based on Christian Biblical Values, it is not exclusively used to counsel Christian Clients- I welcome any individual, whatever their religious belief or background.
