Counselling provides a safe, impartial and confidential space in which to explore your feelings. Talking to a counsellor in a professional environment, safe in the knowledge that what you say will be listened to in a non-judgemental way. Counselling can help you to understand what is at the root of the concerns, and help you to work to resolve them.
All of us at some point in our lives will experience times when we feel that we are overwhelmed or cannot cope. These feelings often impact on other areas of our life leaving us feeling that we are unable to live life happily. This may be the time to seek out a counsellor.
Feelings such as anger, grief, anxiety and depression can be distressing and cause anguish especially if they have been with us for a long time. Counselling can help you to explore and reflect upon these feelings. It can help you to understand what is at the root of the concern, and can help you work to resolve the difficulties
What Conditions Can it Help?
Low self esteem
First session: Sessions last for 1hr minutes and take place in my counselling rooms In the first session we will cover confidentiality, data protection, with a brief introduction to counselling. By finding out more of what has brought you to counselling, we can explore those feelings and discuss the form your counselling may take.
Person Centred counselling relies on the building of a therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor where the client is offered empathy, congruence and UPR.

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.
