Jeanette Ely BA(Hons), MBACP
I am an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor offering individual face-to-face, 50 minute therapy sessions for adults and adolescents tailored to the needs of each client in a compassionate and sensitive way. The sessions are confidential and a safe space to share openly and explore feelings, difficult issues, reflect and gain a better understanding of the self and emotional well-being that can help to inform change and improve self-worth and self-esteem. I work in a non-judgmental and respectful manner and the relationship that develops between us is essential throughout the work.
Counselling may help to achieve a more authentic way of being, as I believe if we can make sense of and understand how our past affects our present feelings and behaviours it may be possible to make changes to the way we live our lives and relate to others in the present.
Counselling may not be an easy process, sharing emotional and difficult situations and feelings can be daunting as well as finding ways to change which may bring mixed feelings, but with my support along the way, we will endeavour to find the way forward that is right for you.
