Helen Gaynor BA (Hons), MBACP @ Sheemore Counselling
At times we can start to feel anxious, nervous or lost because life has started to overwhelm us. We can struggle to be open with the people whom we love and trust because we are struggling to understand our inner feelings. As a qualified person-centred counsellor I can offer an empathic, open, safe environment enabling you to explore those feelings, allowing you to better understand them and helping you to reconnect with you inner values and sense of self-worth.
What to expect
An initial assessment is required to enable us to discuss your goals of counselling and the ways in which I work. This will allow us both to establish if we can work together and is an important part of the therapeutic relationship going forward.
Sessions are offered on a weekly basis and lasts 50 minutes. Parking facilities are available without charge and there are local bus routes close by, making accessibility trouble-free.
