Adrian Roberts BSc (Hons) Pg Dip (Relate)
Sometimes, deciding to go to a Psychotherapist or Counsellor can be a difficult step. Some people may feel a sense of failure if they, as an individual or couple, haven’t been able to sort out their problems by themselves. Others may find the idea of therapy daunting. You might be worried about feeling judged or your point of view is not accepted. You might be looking for a safe impartial space to explore your options and seek answers to those issues you might be facing right now. It can feel overwhelming at times when powerful feelings and painful memories get in the way of where you want to be.
Psychotherapy, or seeing a counsellor, is about helping people to understand and move forward from those problems with the help of a compassionate, trained professional. So, I invite you to choose a therapist such as myself with years of experience and a commitment to ongoing development.
Reaching out can be frightening to consider, so do so in a way that suits you e.g Phone, Email, Skype or face to face. We can have an informal, confidential 20-minute chat at no cost to yourself. I look forward to being invited into your story. CALL 0797 319 8325 or visit https://leicestercounselling.org/
