About me

My name is Gina and I am a counsellor based in Stevenage. We all need emotional support from time to time and if you are reading this, then there is probably something going on, either for you or someone you know, which is affecting you personally.  You may have a specific problem that is particularly emotionally challenging and distressing, such as bereavement or job loss, or struggling with a specific issue such as an eating disorder or pattern of destructive relationships.  However, it might also be something that you cannot quite put your finger on, but you just feel empty and unfulfilled and want to gain some self awareness to enhance your life and relationships.

Life today can be very demanding, provoking high levels of stress, anxiety and depression.  This not only impacts how we feel about ourselves, but also our relationships in both our personal and professional lives.  We can feel so overwhelmed with everything, it becomes hard to make sense of what is going on for us, leaving us feeling vulnerable, confused and isolated.

Traditionally known as the 'talking cure', counselling gives you the opportunity to talk with a trained professional.  It provides you with the space, support and really importantly, time for yourself.  Having someone to support you while you explore your distress, gives you an increased self awareness and confidence, making you better equipped to make the right choices for you.  Resilience also begins to be rebuilt, helping you cope with the challenges that life can throw at us when we least expect it.

I understand that the initial step of reaching out for support can feel daunting.  So if you have any questions or would like to hear more about the way I work, please contact me.  I very much look forward to hearing from you.
