Welcome to my counselling profile.
I will be returning to face to face client work from July 7th 2020 and putting in place the government guidelines current at that time. I will still be offering telephone and online counselling appointments alongside face to face. Please contact me if you have any questions around this due to Covid 19. Take Care. Adele
I hope my profile allows you to feel confident to make contact, either by phone or email.
If you feel if would be useful to have a chat over the phone to ask specific questions then please do not hesitate to pick up the phone and ring, with no pressure or obligations.
Counselling is a journey in life that benefits most people.
Sometimes it helps to talk things over...
Adele was a complete life saver, I was at such a low point, by the time I saw Adele I had been to many other counsellors, referred by my GP and work, not one of them managed to help me, I had been off work a year. Adele really felt like my last hope, thank goodness I met her when I did.
Adele is friendly and approachable yet remained professional, above all Adele instilled calm and helped me process on going issues that I could no longer see beyond. With Adele's help and words of encouragement I managed to start to function, regaining confidence and even returned to work, a huge achievement. I just can't thank Adele enough for being there at the right time, I wish I had seen her earlier, I may not have been at rock bottom. She is an amazing counsellor. I cannot praise or recommend her highly enough.
I met with Adele for bereavement counselling, my husband had died 3 years before and I thought I was doing ok, but actually I wasn't. Meeting with Adele helped me to deal with many issues that I had avoided as they were too painful. I felt very safe and supported and was gently encouraged to talk through the difficulties. Working in this way also helped me to deal with lots of practical issues that I had felt unable to face previously. At the end of the sessions it was a great relief to know I had worked through many things that left me feeling stronger.
Choosing to work with Adele was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Professional and understanding she supported myself and daughter to have a relationship again. In a safe confidential environment, Adele gave us the tools to work at our relationship and move forward again. I would not hesitate to recommend Adele, I cannot speak highly enough of her service.
I had lost myself, my life was a reaction to others demands, I knew I was worth more, I went to see Adele she listened, I now know who I am. I now enjoy being me. The final result was - is - amazing!
Adele, Thank you for all your support, without you I wouldn't have made it to where I am today so I thank you!
Thank you so much you have helped me more than I think you realise, I can see a future again, your counselling service is just brilliant.
Adele gives 110%, I would not hesitate to recommend her, her counselling service is very professional, thank you for all your support.

Finally if you are looking for counselling then this is the first step on what might feel like a delicate journey. Often anxiety about who, where, when, what and how. This is completely natural its your personal space which deserves nurturing, to find solutions, strategies, to develop and enhance, to find courage and to allow acceptance for change.
