We all have times in our lives when we can struggle, either emotionally or psychologically. Life experiences can leave us feeling lost and confused. In times like these, it's so important to reach out and speak to someone - to let others know how you're feeling, and allow them to support you through difficult times, or help you make sense of them, and find your own way forward.
If you do have someone in your life who can offer this support - please, talk to them. Don't shut the world out.
If you don't have that support, or as is often the case, you find it easier to talk to someone impartial, I can offer you a friendly, non-judgemental, safe and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings. I won't seek to influence any decisions you may need to make because I know that there is only one true expert on your life and feelings - and that is you.
My name is Issy and I'm a qualified person-centred counsellor, and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have experience of helping clients with a wide range of issues, such as abuse, anxiety, bereavement, depression, family issues, low self-esteem and stress, to name but a few. Counselling can allow you the time to reflect and process what you've gone through, or are going through, and my experiences as a counsellor have shown that very often, this can help to lift the burden.
Do you think that counselling could be for you? The idea of counselling can be a little intimidating at first, particularly if you've had no prior experience of it. You are not alone, believe me. For this reason, I offer a no obligation, 15 minute telephone consultation, free of charge. This will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the counselling process, and from that, make an informed decision about whether counselling is right for you at this time, and indeed, whether I am the right counsellor for you.
For further information, please ring 07307 603393 or email.
I'm based in Netherton Feelgood Factory, Glovers Lane, Netherton, L30 5QW.

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.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
