Sunnyfield House Community Centre
I can offer you some confidential and devoted listening time to help you relieve the symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, loss and many more challenges. You will be able to explore directions for change, how to make small or big steps towards where or who you want to be, and to talk in-depth, which can be difficult to do sometimes with loved ones.
Counselling can be the first step towards real change, feeling better and coping with life more effectively. You will find the counselling to be non-judgemental, accepting and respectful, which is in-line with the ethical code I work to. As a integrative counsellor I use person-centred counselling mainly, but also transactional analysis and CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) if I think a client may benefit from these.
