I am an Qualified, Experienced Counsellor. Working in the Stevenage.
I offer a Warm, down to earth, confidential service.
I believe the focus should be on you.
Showing you how to listen to your inner voice in order to evolve.
*Work related stress.
Pressures at work. Feeling like your juggling too many things in your life. Tired and run down. We need to feel our best, at work, but, this can be difficult if we are struggling with targets, work load, family life, bills, etc. I can assist with distressing and enjoying your work again.
*Bereavement / loss
Losing a loved one is hard. Grief can be over-whelming and can stall your life. Sometimes family and friends get bored of hearing about your grief. But Grief has no time limit. We all grieve at different rates and different ways. I can give you the space to feel, accept how your feeling. Going forward with the loss.
Relationships are about communication, trust and honesty. We can get into negative patterns, like name calling, winning, ignoring, etc. I can give you space to explore your relationship. I can help you make what changes are needed for you to move forward with it.
I can work short term, over 4-6 weeks.
I can work long term over a long period to build a relationship of trust and warmth.
