Recognition is the first step to change
Hi my name is Candice. I am a relational, Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist based at The Wellbeing Space in central Farnham, offering confidential support within a safe and accepting environment.
I imagine that if you are reading this you may be having a difficult time.
Do you feel anxious, stressed or are struggling to cope?
Taking that first step to find a counsellor may feel daunting, especially when life may already feel very challenging, so here is a little about how counselling could be beneficial to you and how I work.
Challenges during these rapidly changing times around us may mean you have forgotten how to 'enjoy life' or perhaps you are not taking care of yourself. You may feel down but not understand why and you may be experiencing relationship issues.
It may be memories from the past that are deeply buried away, present issues or worries about the future that may continue to encroach in your life.
It can feel easier to bottle up our emotions in order to seem to be coping. However, in the long-term, suppressing emotions can have an impact on both our emotional and physical health.
Experiencing anxiety, depression, stress or illness can be a good indicator that something is wrong. Counselling can be a way of valuing your body and mind balance, helping to restore emotional wellbeing.
Health is a state of body: Wellness is a state of being.
How I work:
Integrative therapy allows me to bring elements of different theories towards a combined approach taking into account the uniqueness of each individual. I work 'relationally' within this model. I believe the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is both psychologically and emotionally healing. Establishing trust and safety is paramount, within a confidential setting which enables you to feel heard and understood.
My aim as a counsellor is to help you work through any issues you may have or a difficult period in your life that you are struggling with, helping to uncover and explore the root cause of any concerns and difficulties. To help you find acceptance, become self-aware, empowered and restore your sense of wellbeing, therefore enabling choice or change within yourself.
I am passionate about my work; it is both a responsibility and a privilege to be an integral part of my client's exploration and new understanding.
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life...
I understand how difficult it may be to make that first contact for help and I am happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
All enquiries are strictly confidential. Please contact me by telephone or email.
We can arrange an initial free consultation, providing you with the opportunity to gain a sense if you would like to work with me, and what you would like to gain from your sessions.
The length and focus of work varies according to individual needs and circumstances and I can be flexible to your needs. I offer daytime, evening and Saturday morning appointments.
