Elizabeth Halford MBACP, MNCS (Accred)
Hello and welcome. Do you feel that your problems are becoming too much for you to bear on your own, and you need to find a way to share them? Perhaps you are facing a difficult time in your life, feeling overwhelmed by emotions so that you can't see a way forward. Or it might be that nothing in your life has changed and yet you still have a feeling of sadness when going about everyday things. By providing you with a safe, confidential space in which to talk and to be truly heard, I will help you to explore your concerns and to feel more empowered in your responses to them.
How I Can Help
As a qualified Humanistic counsellor, I offer a gentle, compassionate, non-judgemental approach to problem solving and healing. I work in a way that is flexible in order to suit your individual needs. The first session is an opportunity for you to decide if I might be the counsellor for you. If you choose to continue with further sessions, I encourage regular feedback on how the work is progressing to help you gain the most from it.
Your Next Step
You have taken the first important step by looking for a potential counsellor. If you would like to know more about how I can help, I would be delighted to hear from you. Please do email or call me to discuss your needs in more detail and to see if the therapy I offer could be of use to you.
