Do you struggle with feelings such as sadness, anxiety or low self-esteem? Maybe life has got on top of you and you don’t know how to move forward. Or there are issues from your past that won't go away, and which interfere with your present happiness. Do you feel stressed, worried or stuck and not sure where to turn? We all experience difficult times in life that we can struggle to deal with, and it can sometimes be hard to make the first step to seek help. Maybe you’ve talked to friends or family, but they don’t ‘get it’ or are too busy. Or perhaps you feel there’s nobody you can talk to about your worries. If you're looking at this profile, now could be a good time to take the first step and get in touch.
I offer you a safe space for you to talk about things in more depth and understand them better. I will listen without judging and help you understand and resolve your difficulties in ways that work for you. I will encourage you and help you explore ways forward at your pace, so you can start to feel happier and stronger. But first of all you may need to just talk and be listened to.
Emotional Therapeutic Counselling uses creative techniques to help you identify and release painful feelings in an appropriate way, by working with your emotions rather than your mind. It’s important that you find the right counsellor for you. To help you decide, I offer an initial 30-minute session for free. Contact me by phone or email to meet up without obligation and explore how I might be able to help.
