Jill Newman Dip Couns., Registered MBACP
Working in a caring support role within the NHS for several years led on to qualifying as a counsellor. As a parent who has always worked, I understand absolutely how pressures at work and/or in your personal life can easily become overwhelming and lead to debilitating stress.
How can counselling help?
If you're feeling overwhelmed, whether through work-place stress, home-life, grief...the reasons are many and varied...too much pressure can result in anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue, memory problems, sleep disturbance... it's important to recognise what's happening and give yourself a chance to recover by slowing down. Discussing things in-depth, with someone impartial, helps you to recognise what's going on for you. Greater self-awareness brings clarity and the ability to find a way forward, refreshed and restored.
What happens during a session?
The first session is a no-obligation introduction, for you to get a feel of how it would be working together. We'll discuss the approach that I use and what issues are troubling you. My technique is mainly person-centred, meaning that as sessions progress you will discover how your mood is affected by what's on your mind. In this supportive, understanding environment, a time dedicated to you alone, you will start to find your own way towards peace of mind. Once some light is shed on the darker areas they will cease to have such a hold on you. You'll regain some balance and start to feel more positive.
What kind of issues can be addressed?
Any issues that are constantly on your mind and stopping you living wholeheartedly, can usually be addressed. A very brief explanation of what's on your mind when you contact me will help me to check that this is something I have the expertise to talk through with you.
