Heather Meek MBACP (Registered)
2018 is drawing to an end as we fast approach the festive season.
A whole array of emotions come with the anticipation of this 'season' and it is well documented that the magnitude of the stresses, strains and anxieties we are already trying to manage become even more increased at this time of year.
Embarking on counselling with me will give you time and a confidential space to talk through these concerns/worries/issues, confident in the knowledge that you will be truly listened to and heard, as I endeavour to understand what 'life is like being in your shoes' . Sharing in this way will enable us to make sense of what is happening for you and how best you can manage, change and/or overcome what is 'pulling you down'.
I have been privileged to work with and be of help to many people over the past 7 years in my work as a counsellor and in this time I have worked with a range of difficulties and concerns especially, anxiety, depression and disordered eating patterns
I offer a free half-hour initial appointment as an opportunity for us to meet and to see whether the process of counselling can be of help to you.
If this is something you might be interested in exploring further do contact me by telephone or Email; that phone call could be the start of a better 2019 for you.
