Jane Fellowes Registered MBACP
Are you grieving due to a major life change, a loss of any kind or a bereavement? If so, I can help. If you are seeking a Counsellor right now, you may be experiencing a variety of difficult and overwhelming emotions and feelings.
Grief can manifest with feelings of depression, helplessness, numbness, anxiety, shock and isolation, to name a few.
A major life change or transition?
Trying to cope with the bereavement of a loved one?
Maybe you've left home for the first time?
A relationship may have ended?
A change of job or you have experienced redundancy?
The loss of your health or a recent diagnosis?
Maybe you have lost your identity, your trust or your hope? Feeling unsafe, unsure or confused?
I believe that many of the troubles and difficulties that we experience arise from losses and changes in life.
Our view of the world and our identity is rooted in our relationships with others, where we live, and our roles in society. When there is loss or change this can lead to overwhelming grief and cast us into unknown territory.
Grief naturally follows a loss of any kind and can feel difficult to navigate on your own. The feelings and emotions that arise can be overwhelming and all consuming. You may worry about leaving an impact on others around you, what they might think about you. Maybe it feels like everyone is walking on egg shells around you, extra pressure and expectations can send us further along that downward spiral.
I specialise in working with adults who have experienced bereavement, loss or are experiencing a life change.
I am here to offer you a place to explore, understand and work with these feelings and emotions, away from expectations and judgment. I will really listen to you, helping you to reach a place of greater peace and a way to move forward in a different life.
Counselling can really help when everything feels too much. Like you are struggling to make sense of things. It gives you the chance to tell your story, without needing to hold back. When we feel safe, supported and heard, we can reach a place of greater self understanding and feel empowered.
If you would like to find out more, you can contact me directly or have a look through my website. I can usually see clients within a week of enquiry and try to make the process as simple and stress free for you as I can.
