Charlotte Speirs (Reg. MBACP, BPC)
I would like to help you to feel better in yourself. If you are struggling with difficult feelings, worries or experiences, I can offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space in which to talk and an opportunity for change.
Perhaps you feel anxious, depressed, lonely, overwhelmed or unable to cope. You may be experiencing relationship issues, panic attacks, stress at work or find yourself struggling following a bereavement. These are just a few of the many difficulties counselling can help with.
When you come to see me, I will help you think about what is troubling you so that we can reach a greater understanding and increase your self-confidence. Together we will reflect on the factors that might be affecting your life and explore a way forward. I will not give you advice or tell you what to do but help you to get to a point where you feel able to make your own choices and affect change in your own life for the better.
If you would like to get in touch, we can arrange an initial session where we can meet each other, find out more and decide whether counselling might be of help.
My fee is £40 per 50 minute session. I offer a limited number of reduced rate fees to those in financial need.
