Are you looking for a counsellor?
Life can throw lots of tough challenges at us, and sometimes we all need support. Whether you feel anxious,depressed or just don't know what is wrong then please call me, I could help you.
Maybe its not for you, is it your child/partner that you feel is in need of help? Are they withdrawn/angry displaying inappropriate behaviour? There are so many issues that can effect our day to day lives. I'm here to help, so call me, txt me or email me, we can talk, I can listen, or if you need to chew someones ear off I'M HERE. Don't try to carry on on your own... get in touch, don't be afraid, I can help.
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, pet 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!
