Carla Shears - Red Counselling MBACP

About me

Counselling is a journey, sometimes a tough one but from the moment we begin our counselling relationship, I will be by your side as you take it.

Red Counselling can offer you a safe, comfortable place for you to explore, reflect, find emotional release or help you to get clarity to a problem that has been troubling you. You can have the confidence to speak freely and openly without judgement or interruption, which allows you to dig deep into your inner emotions and in time, ultimately help you find your own solutions to any problems you may have. The end result; counselling can lead to an overall increased feeling of well-being, self-awareness, confidence, a greater understanding of difficulties and acceptance of challenging circumstances.

Initial contact can be made confidentially by telephone or email, either way I will get back to you the same day. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have at this stage, under no obligation. Take a look at my website to gain further information.
