Jayne Coates MBACP (registered)
It takes courage to reach out and ask for support when you're feeling low. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space to reflect on your personal experiences, develop self-awareness and make the changes you are looking for to obtain a more fulfilling life.
We all experience times when life can be stressful and can feel overwhelming. Asking for support is not admitting you can't cope, it's looking for ways to help you cope, and seeking support outside of our family and friendship groups can be beneficial for many reasons. I will work with you in a compassionate way so you feel respected, listened to and understood throughout our time together, for as long as you feel is necessary.
As an integrative counsellor, I draw on different models to suit your individual needs, with my main theoretical approach being person-centered. This means I will walk alongside you on your journey, offering a confidential, trusting space, for you to flourish into the person you want to be.
