Meadows Counselling-Jenny Hodsdon BSc (Hons) Psychology, MBACP
Modern life has many challenges. It is fast-paced and there seems to be expectations of us at every stage, and in every area, of life.
People like you come for counselling for many different reasons.
Do you just feel that you cannot move forwards in life no matter how hard you try? Do you find every option you come up with has a problem attached to it? I can help you to find a way to change that.
When there are too many things to worry about or deal with and you feel you cannot fit anything else in your head?
I can help you to carve a piece of calm for yourself.
Or have you been feeling very sad recently?
You might know why especially if you have just lost something. A person, a pet, your job, your health. All these things can make you feel lost & disconnected. Counselling can help with this. It can give you support whilst you process those feelings.
Or maybe feeling angry?
Finding yourself flying off the handle a bit? Worried you might lose control of your temper at work? There could be reasons you're not aware of yet. We can work together to find out why and come up with solutions.
All it takes is a brief email or a quick phone call to me just to sort a time to meet. That's it-you've taken that first step to feeling better.
Counselling gives you protected time away from everything-it is your space in which you can totally focus on what is happening for you. If any of the feelings above have given you that 'aha!' moment then you may be in need of counselling. Together we can find a way to help you to see your problems more clearly and make it easier for you to find solutions.
Your first visit costs £25 and sessions will be £40 after that.
