Marvet Simpson RegMBACP Accred, Supervisor, Couples Counsellor
Faith is Taking the First Step.
Are you looking for help to deal with a difficult situation, help that is unbiased, fair, and supportive? You may be experiencing feelings of depression, low mood; Changes in life may be affecting you and you are unsure how to move forward; what ever your reason, I can help you to make sense of your situation.
Client's I have worked with say that they have been helped, that they have gained a new perspective to deal with their issues, and that it feels good to be heard. Clients are left empowered and being able to manage their situation, work things out by talking it through, and understanding how our historical past has an impact on our present. I'm counselling because I want to help people. I can empathise, with a range of emotions that many people are left with as result of life's challenges, and with a range of skills, theory, and experience, along with the therapeutic relationship, we can work together to help you.
I am a deeply reflective person, and will help you to do the same, because I believe reflection enables growth. Reflections have helped me on my journey, one that has been both rewarding and fulfilling, I will like to help you on your own personal journey.
As you process your thoughts and feelings in the sessions, I will apply the appropriate theory and practice in order to help you facilitate change. Many people find that taking the first step to seek counselling is often a very difficult one, but once taken, the journey has started that will begin to lead you on to emotional, mental and physical well-being. You will be empowered to make the changes to manage the situations in your life.
I can see you at a mutually convenient time soon after contact. Please view the counselling room below to picture where we will be having our sessions.
