Gillian Cocksedge, MBACP Dip. Couns.
I believe that by listening and working alongside you in a non-judgemental and confidential way can help you start to make sense of a range of mental health issues and experiences, such as anxiety, depression, work stress, relationships, bereavement. Counselling can help you gain clarity and understanding of yourself and help you explore what may be causing you to struggle.
If you feel that your issues have built up to a point where you need to talk to someone other than family and friends as they are too close to what is happening or would not understand, please contact me and we can arrange an initial meeting. This initial meeting does not mean you are obliged to continue on to counselling sessions.
I have experience of working with adults and teenagers who may be suffering and I have worked in a school environment for over 10 years which means I also have an understanding of the stresses that staff (teachers and support staff) may experience.
