India Sunderland BA (Hons), MBACP, Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
I’m a strong believer that, in the words of Nelson Mandela “there is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living” – yet sometimes life is really quite tough and we find ourselves struggling and this ideal seems far from our reality.
As COVID-19 disrupts our lives you may find yourself feeling emotionally overwhelmed, anxious, lonely, trapped and even feeling a huge sense of loss. You may have been struggling for some time and not got around to addressing it and now that something may be feeling a little bigger right now.
This is not the time to suffer alone, this is the time to reach out for support, a time to help and be kind to yourself.
Counselling can help during these difficult periods; it can offer you a confidential space to explore the strains you are facing and the impact they may be having on your relationships, work-life and wellbeing.
Feeling emotionally overwhelmed can be a lonely place and through our work and counselling relationship I will support you in addressing your current situation and possibly looking back at painful times from the past and how they might be limiting you now.
Counselling can be a really difficult process, for some acknowledging that they need counselling is hard, for others the work in the room can be challenging and painful. However it can also be a positive freeing experience that brings about insight and awareness, a change in relationships and a personal sense of being.
ONLINE - during this period I am only offering online video counselling and telephone counselling. You may feel daunted about using these methods for something that feels so personal and vulnerable but I want to encourage you that just like face-to-face counselling, it becomes more and more natural as our relationship develops and the work done, with adjustments, is as effective.
I offer both long and short-term counselling on a weekly basis
