Jean Weatherall, Tower Counselling
My name is Jean and I am a qualified person-centred counsellor working in Ramsbottom. As a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, you can be assured, I have been appropriately trained to meet their rigorous professional standards.
Person centred counselling can be effective in helping people with depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, trauma, abuse and other emotional difficulties.
At times life events may be overwhelming and we can find ourselves unable to make sense of our feelings or to find a way forward. Depression or anxiety can settle and be difficult to shrug off. You may have supportive people around you, but it often helps to talk to someone who isn’t personally involved in your life.
As a person-centred counsellor, I will listen to you with understanding and without judgement. Together we can build a confidential relationship that enables you to feel safe to explore any events, issues, or feelings that are concerning you. You will take the lead and be in control of what we talk about.
My aim as a counsellor is to help you :-
• Feel supported as you explore your feelings and whatever is troubling you,
• Gain insight and understanding of your responses
• Find your own strength to develop as a person
• Develop an improved sense of self-worth and well-being
• Support you to make changes if you wish.
It may take courage to decide to come for counselling but if something, from the past or the present, is making you feel unsettled then it is good to act on it. Burying problems and feelings is not good for our well-being in the long term.
