AlongYourSide - Jacqueline Terry MBACP, BSc(Hons) Counselling & Psychotherapy
We all struggle with day to day life sometimes. Being aware of overwhelming feelings and anxious thoughts that won't stop, no matter how much you try to ignore them and carry on.
We all need a little help from time to time, and it's OK to ask for help and to take the time to look after yourself.
Having a safe space to talk confidentially, one to one, with someone can help you. By focusing on your issues in a new light and allowing yourself the time to be aware of your thoughts and feelings causing your struggles.
It might be you need help with:
- Difficult Relationships
- Bereavement of a loved one
- General anxiety
- Feelings of anger
Having a tough time myself a number of years ago brought me to counselling. I am now an experienced person-centered counsellor helping everyday people for the past 5 years. New to the counselling services I provide is Animal Assisted Therapy with my dog, Dila. If you feel having Dila there would help with your counselling session she can be waiting in the room.
If you want to discuss your issues further please contact me by telephone or email and leave your details with your availability. I will get back to you to arrange your free initial 30 minute telephone appointment to discuss your needs.
