Judy Reed, Dip. Counselling, MBACP
I am a qualified counsellor working in Stoneleigh, Epsom. Taking the first step to ask for help can be daunting, but together we can work through what is troubling you in a non-judgmental, safe environment.
The pressures of life can be immense and sometimes overwhelming. On top of this we can also be thrown off course by traumatic events, bereavement, relationship problems, health problems, depression, financial worries. Feelings of emptiness, anger, loneliness, and anxiety may affect your ability to cope.
There are often many expectations placed upon us: the need to be positive, succeed, achieve, meet targets, exceed targets, work hard, play hard, eat healthily, keep fit; be a good person, colleague, employee, employer, parent, son, daughter, partner, lover; be strong, be happy... the list is endless and exhausting.
Life can bring challenges which can be difficult to face alone. I believe that Talking Therapy offers an opportunity to think about how you approach problems from a different perspective and to voice what is on your mind in a warm, caring environment with an empathic, non-judgmental person at your side.
Together, in a professional relationship, we can reflect on what has brought you to this moment, what your pressures are and how to move forward.
I can give you the space, time, empathy and encouragement to make the changes in your life you need to be more you.
