Life can sometimes seem overwhelming with events challenging our relationships with others and ourselves. Trying to cope can lead to; patterns of unhelpful behaviour, stress, lack of motivation, sadness, feeling isolated and ignoring feelings of your own. This can soon become the norm.
I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and my work life prior to this includes over 20 years working within the NHS. During this time I have gained a deeper understanding of how poor emotional health and a feeling of 'losing your way in life' can have a significant negative effect on your general well being.
I offer Integrative therapy at MaVie Counselling to help you gain a better understanding of yourself which in turn can help you to better understand others. This means that I may use one or more approaches in order to offer the therapy best suited to you. I understand that everyone has different needs, experiences and expectations from the counselling process. This is done in a welcoming, confidential and safe environment.
Drop me an e-mail at: MaVie.Counselling@gmail.com or contact me on: 07763781225 We can discuss setting up the initial session and your hopes from counselling.
