As a fully qualified Person-centred counsellor and drawing from my own personal experiences I believe that everyone has the ability to manage their own growth and development, if given the right conditions and environment in which to do so, in order to discover their true self.
Counselling can be a hugely effective and strengthening process. Empathy, genuineness and an unconditional, non-judgmental attitude are vital in a useful therapeutic relationship.
This is what I would provide as your counsellor - a safe space for you to explore any difficulties, specific event or problem that may be affecting your life.
How can I help?
Difficulties such as: Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Bullying, Depression, Identity issues, Loss, Low self confidence, Low self esteem, Relationship issues, Stress, Work related issues,
Exploring your feelings can bring understanding and clarity, the aim being that with the understanding of those difficulties comes the potential for change. Change which can lead to personal growth and happiness.
A warm welcome and a listening ear:
I understand that making the decision to seek counselling can be very daunting and worrying. My aim would be to give you a warm welcome and make the experience as comfortable as possible in order for you to look at the difficulties you are facing and bring about the changes you are seeking.
The first step is often the hardest - taking the decision and making the call.
If you feel you would benefit from counselling and would like to meet and discuss the way forward, please call on (07932) 665287 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to talking to you.
