Are you seeing the world from a dark place?
How can counselling help?
At times, we all struggle and need help. Most of the time, we manage to get through the tough times, but sometimes it is hard to see the way forward.
Talking to a professional Counsellor can help by sharing your thoughts and emotions with someone who will not judge you; someone who has no agenda other than helping you to make sense of your feelings.
Talking to a qualified Counsellor is proven to work.
What I offer
I provide a one-to-one counselling service in Yardley and Central Birmingham.
I work with you to explore experience of life, and how you came to this difficult place. Together we will help you to gain understanding and insight to overcome emotional and behavioural issues that keep you from living the life you want.
I will help you to learn tools to manage stress, build skills to cope with depression and loss.
Accessing counselling is a big emotional and financial commitment, but it is also a positive investment in yourself and your future.
What to expect in your first session
We will talk about what has brought you to counselling and what you would like to achieve through the work.
I will explain to you more about how I work and what I can offer you.
Together we will plan how to move forward.
If you would like to explore how Counselling could help you
