Are you looking for a counsellor?
Life can throw lots of tough challenges at us, and sometimes we need support. Do you feel that you need to talk, and be really listened to?
Would you like to explore your feelings and experiences to help you to make any needed changes?
Do you need to express how you feel and sometimes just feel the need to "chew someone's ear off?"
I would like to help you, to look, feel and figure out what issues you are experiencing, what is having such an influence on your life that it can affect your ability to function, to understand and learn how to cope, to change what you need to change or indeed just come to terms with life. We can do this together in a calm, confidential, non-judgemental emphatic way.
What I can provide
I can give you my undivided time and attention, no matter what you want to bring to counselling even if you think that it's not worth talking about it's your issue, it is worth it. I can give you my support, I work with adults, young people and children with a range of issues, stress-related issues, including work/school/college stress. Change, trauma, bereavement (including pre-bereavement and family group work) personal and relationship issues, anxiety and loneliness.
Counselling sessions that I provide are calm, confidential and professional. Sessions would be tailored to suit how you, the pace which we work at, the subjects that you want to explore how many sessions you feel you require, counselling can be short or long term. I employ a variety of techniques in my counselling sessions, again tailored to your needs.
What to expect in your first session
This is a time to explore, what's brought you to therapy, and what you hope the outcome will be. Also, it's a time to ask and answer any questions we may have for each other, and also to discuss what we both expect, boundaries etc. It's a chance to see if we feel comfortable working together. There is no obligation or pressure attached to this meeting. It's just a, 'getting to know you meeting,' So why don't you come and see me, come on in and have a nice cup of tea!
