Golden Leaf Counselling - Making Life Changes...(Cromer area but including Norwich and Aylsham)
Stressed, anxious or depressed? low self esteem or anger problems...? relationship issues? or a bereavement or loss of some kind to deal with (including dementia)? Anything that you feel is holding you back in your life will benefit from the help of a mature and experienced counsellor.
I have over 14 years experience in the counselling world, teaching and listening, and plenty of varied lfe experience, (living in various locations) to help you understand yours better.
Counselling is about looking at other options to life's problems, with someone outside your usual family and friends network. This helps because the counsellor does not have anything to do with your existing relationships and so can offer a more neutral perspective.
Golden Leaf offers an integrative service, (drawing upon CBT and Gestalt techniques within a Person Centred base). An additional specialism is in working with addictions and dependencies such as alcohol problems, which are often linked to how you feel about yourself in general and to your relationships.
If you are a counsellor requiring supervision this is also an option - please look at my website for further details.
