About me

human kind: Counselling Services.

At some time or other, most people’s lives encounter difficult times.

These can include bereavement, financial worries, and health concerns, mid life crises, relationship difficulties, child contact, and bullying. Others struggle with sexuality, or prejudice connected with ethnicity disability or religion and potentially low self esteem.

A troubled past can be a barrier to moving forwards. Often, Shame, Blame, Guilt and Embarrassment imprison us and can even cause addictive behaviours to develop.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. We all make choices we later regret. We can then experience difficulties getting back “on track” under our own steam. We wind up lost, alone, directionless, fearful and vulnerable.

Banishing issues or learning to manage them safely and healthily from a different perspective can free us to find our ideals and be our true selves.

Here at human kind, we recognise that at some time in our lives most of us experience difficult situations which affect our emotions, thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

We understand that this is about being a part of humanKind and we are here for you. Providing a confidential, safe, compassionate and understanding environment can help. Here, thoughts, feelings and experiences can be explored with a trusted professional. The effect can be liberating and help us navigate a path to a brighter safer and more balanced future.

A range of professional therapies are available which include:

Person Centred Counselling.

In this relaxed unstructured therapy you dictate your own pace and direction. A professional therapist alongside throughout helps you explore your world. This can make sense of events and assist you finding your own resolutions, a new direction, positivity and peace of mind.

Person Centred Counselling often lends itself to bereavement, loss, relationship breakdown. It can also assist when changing circumstances take us “out of our comfort zone,” leaving us feeling frightened and not in control.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)    

This therapy is a more structured and proactive approach. Often, expert guidance is offered to combat traumatic issues. (Always by mutual agreement) This can take the form of looking at problems from different perspectives. Understanding this can positively affect our mood and how we deal with things now, and in the future!

CBT often lends itself to Stress, Anxiety and Depression, trauma and addictions.

Integrative Approach

Often clients respond favourably with a “blend” of the Person Centred and CBT approaches in order to achieve a satisfactory outcome. At all times this is done as a bespoke service to suit your needs, personality and situation.

Therapy Communication Medium.

All therapies may be conducted face to face, over the telephone, or via a secure visual internet medium. (Zoom)

Getting Started:

Once you have reviewed my profile, the next step is to make contact. You are most welcome to call, email or text me. We can then arrange a mutually convenient appointment for a relaxed introductory session. We will then explore what you want to get out of counselling and if you are happy to continue I will happily set up further appointments. Week-day and evening sessions are available.
