Welcome, and thank you for pausing to read my profile.
Why Are you Reading this Profile?
I would imagine the reason why you are reading this is because something is making you unhappy at the moment? Maybe you have some thoughts and feelings that are impacting on your daily life and you just can’t seem to leave them behind – like a loop of recurring thoughts?
When you feel isolated by your experiences, talking to an impartial counsellor may be of benefit to you by allowing you time and space to work out what is best for you. I would like to help you understand why you feel the way you do and how to move towards being more at ease with yourself. I often work with clients where we explore past and present relationships and experiences – together we look at the negative effects of early emotional and relationship difficulties, sticking points for you, discovering where triggers originated for you and helping you to take the power out of these thoughts for where your life is now.
Sometimes you want someone to be there for you and I would like to offer my support to you, if that is what you need right now.
What to Expect?
The rooms at Clarity Wellbeing Clinic are modern, discreet and comfortable. Parking is within a two minute walk. You will be provided with a comfortable, completely confidential space to explore and understand why your thoughts may be affecting your life. Perhaps you have feelings of disappointment, rage, injustice, longing, resentment or any number of other emotions. Together, we will talk through your concerns without fear of judgement, and allowing you to recalibrate* your approach to your own life. You may have been holding inside some of these thoughts for a long time.
I have experience of working with adult clients from a range of; ages, sexuality, backgrounds and cultures and have been privileged to share in the undulating emotions and experiences of their lives. We will metaphorically ‘walk and talk’ about where your life has taken you and why you feel as you do now.
If you are interested in discovering what it might be like to work with me as your therapist, please do get in touch on the number above or email; email@example.com. I aim to respond to your message as soon as possible and within 6 hours. We can arrange an initial session to find out whether the support I offer would be useful to you.
*Recalibrate – In therapeutic terms; finding a sense of balance between family, work and life and knowing when to focus on self-care, something like a mental health MOT.
