Diana Matthews MBACP Snr. Accred.
I offer counselling to couples and individuals in a private tranquil setting.Together we work through problems that can so easily occur through the stresses of life.
Difficulties can come in many forms, distress can be because of a bereavement, an event or circumstances or perhaps dissatisfaction with life. It may be a loss of sense of direction or purpose or issues within a relationship.
I aim to provide a safe space to explore difficulties to enable self awareness and understanding and bring about the potential to change.
I have been fortunate to have worked in a variety of settings that have enabled me to have a level of understanding and experience that has aided my work.
I have worked with young people in a counselling and advice agency and with a variety of ages in GP surgeries and Employee Assistance Programmes. I am now involved with couple work.
If you choose to come to counselling I will listen attentively to begin to understand the difficulties from your point of view. Talking through issues can help to see them more clearly. We can look at options and choices to see what is best for you.
Please do not hesitate to call or email if you would like to speak to me or find out more.
