Claire Coupe (MBACP)
At times we can find ourselves feeling troubled, overwhelmed, out of control, powerless, anxious or depressed. Sometimes the reason for this is clear but often these feelings preoccupy us without us really knowing why. In either case, we can work together to explore what these feelings mean and think about how and why they began, how they are affecting you and what you would like to change.
It is possible that early childhood experiences or prior traumatic events may be affecting your ability to cope with a current situation. Through talking about your personal history, sense of self, relationships and beliefs, we can explore how this may be impacting you. Gaining new understanding of your experiences may ease both current issues or old wounds. Many issues can be explored in this way; anger, relationship or family problems, loss and grief, ill health, trauma, abuse, identity, gender, sexuality and body image concerns.
I aim to provide an environment where you are free to express and evaluate your needs in an open, confidential and non judgemental situation, where your concerns can be heard and given time and attention they need.
