What may bring you to counselling
Are you facing difficulties, unresolved issues from your past which are currently affecting you? Would you like to tackle them or maybe there are things in the present that you would like to try and change?
Are you experiencing significant events in your life such as starting a family, illness or coming to terms with the death of a loved one?
Perhaps you are finding yourself stuck in the same situation over and over again, not able to make a decision or move forward with your life? Do you feel frustrated, exhausted, depressed, or angry for repeating the same mistakes?
Maybe you do not have anyone to talk to and share your feelings with? Maybe you do not want to talk about it with your partner or family. It could be very beneficial to talk in confidence with someone who can empathise with you and offer support.
How I work
I understand that starting counselling could be concerning; I will give you time to go at your own pace and full attention for you to explore what is troubling you and what matters for you. I work with adults of all ages and backgrounds and I have had supported people with a broad range of issues.
Counselling is a process, a collaboration between you and me. I am not a fixer, therefore, I will not fix your problems or tell you what to do. I will not give you advice on what is best for you or how to live your life. We will work together; we might explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviours to help you get insight and a better understanding of yourself and your needs. Knowing yourself and getting clarity about your situation can provide the foundation for change.
If you have got any questions; please contact me directly by phone or email.
My mobile is: 07871 424053 or please feel free to visit my website where you can directly book an exploratory session: www.gosiacounselling.com.
The exploratory session is totally free of charge and it will last 45 min.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
