About me

At Bethel Counselling I offer a safe and comfortable space for you to come and explore a whole range of issues which may be challenging you or causing concern and hindering you from moving on in your life.

You may be faced with a reoccuring problem which is preventing you from reaching your potential or that stops you from enjoying life to the full. You may be facing painful situations and are seeking a way through. Counselling may be helpful to you.

Some of the possible benefits of counselling are:

  • You learn more about yourself.
  • You identify new coping strategies.
  • You learn to manage unpleasant facts or feelings.
  • The service is confidential.
  • You will not be judged.

Counselling can provide you with the opportunity to take a brave step forward to reflect on your past and consider your future.

Client feedback:

"It helped me to begin to know myself better and to recognise unhelful negative thought patterns and processess."

If you feel that you may benefit from counselling please do contact me to arrange a first meeting which is free of charge and will help you to decided whether you wish to come to counselling.
