Leala Porter BSc (Hons) QTS PG Dip Counselling and Psychotherapy Cert. S'vision
Sometimes experiences can wobble us and just feel too much. For many reasons we don't want to talk to friends or family which can feel isolating and make us feel worse, often affecting us physically.
We often just keep going, trying to bracket things and push them from our thoughts. These can then jump forwards again affecting our daily lives, our relationships with others and performance at work. We can feel paralysed by them with the physical feelings of anxiety and depression preventing us from engaging fully with our lives.
My time is yours, where I can offer a space where you are able to take a moment to reflect upon what is happening for you and to consider what you need in order to enjoy a fulfilling, meaningful life.
I can help you with this process - you are not alone. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues. Nothing is too shocking, too much or too small. Talking with someone who is trained to listen to you and your needs, in confidence, can be hugely beneficial and may only need a couple of sessions.
My experience is working as a counsellor and psychotherapist supporting adults, young people and children through a whole variety of challenges, each unique to their own experience. Please feel welcome to contact me and chat through how I may be able to help you.
I also offer Clinical supervision to qualified Counsellors and Counsellors still in training.
