We are all have our own 'unique life experience' that shapes our ideology and helps to mould the person that we eventually become. This in turn will have a bearing upon how we perceive our environment and come to terms with the many challenges that may face us upon our journey.
The ethos of 'Younique counselling' is to 'Celebrate Your Individuality'
I offer a Humanistic and Integrative counselling service that sponsors the creativity of the individual.
I offer counselling for bereavement, or loss . Anxiety caused by life changing situations that we have no control over. Depression, where you feel debilitated and you need to gain motivation and perspective. Anger management or Relationship issues, or if you are simply feeling overwhelmed and don't know where to turn
To share is to know that you are not alone.
Please feel free to contact me for more information.
I am a member of BACP and follow the ethical code of practice.
Thank you for taking time to look at my profile.

Losing a loved one is the most devastating and life changing experiences we can have. Coming to terms with a bereavement is extremely difficult, and involves working through several emotional stages. These are known as the Khubler Ross 5 grief stages, denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. These stages will not nessecarily follow one after the other and can often reoccur over the grieving period. The time that this may take, can't be measured and will be different for each individual.
An aged Grandparent who passes away will be sadly missed; but a parent losing a child will turn our expectations and assumptions on their head. The process of mourning will be defined not only by who the deceased was, but also by the nature of the survivor's relationship to that person.
Our ability to cope at this time can be very difficult, and it can often be helpful to talk to someone who is not connected with your loss. This is where bereavement counselling can be of help.
