Bella T Law MBACP
Counselling offers a safe, confidential space for you to tell your story, not to be judged, but to be listened to empathetically.
I have over 12 years’ experience of working with individuals, couples and any relationship that is struggling to find a way forward, including siblings or any other family relationship. I am Relate (and currently work with them) and CRUSE trained. I have a flexible approach to sessions; brief intervention work - for short term problems, which can be a reaction to a life event. Longer term therapy - for difficulties you may have been struggling with over a longer period of time. Sessions are tailored to the needs of each client. The main focus of our first session will be to make sure you feel comfortable working with me, as I believe it is not a case of ‘one size fits all’. The quality of our relationship will have a beneficial influence on the effectiveness of our work together.
There are times in everyone’s life when we suffer loss. Loss of any sort can have a significant impact on the quality of life, our feelings of self-worth. It can be loss of a loved one, loss of a relationship, home, job, self-esteem or simply losing our way. Loss and change are often devastating and can turn our world upside down. At a time when everything seems ‘all at sea’ counselling can provide a safe haven in which to express our feelings and mourn our losses until we feel strong again.
As life is constantly changing it is not unusual to find that our well-formed strategies that have previously worked so well no longer have the same positive effect. This can throw us ‘off course’ and can have a major unsettling impact on our lives and relationships. Counselling can help us to see things from a different perspective and helps to discover new strategies for overcoming or living with our difficulties going forward. My role is to facilitate the process of gaining greater self-awareness and understanding of others so as to improve our relationships and live a more fulfilling life.
I work out of a central location in Salisbury with easy parking. I can offer day or evening appointments.
