Lynne Moyes MBACP Registered, BSc (Hons) Psychology, MBPsS
If you believe that you need to have a serious mental health issue to benefit from counselling then you are not alone, it’s a common misconception. Having this view may make you feel too embarrassed to reach out to a counsellor because you think your problems are not serious enough. However, counselling can help with a variety of common problems that are making you unhappy and is an avenue open to you in orders to improve your situation. Counselling can be an investment in developing yourself which can pay future dividends. Counselling offers the opportunity for you to learn new skills which you can apply both now and in the future to improve the quality of your life. I have a toolbox of interventions depending on your needs. As they say ‘If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always get’.
Whatever the situation, taking those first steps to attend therapy takes courage and as a qualified counsellor, I can help.
We can work together towards reaching your goals and resolve issues, see things more clearly or from a different perspective.
What is counselling and how does it help
At some point everyone will face challenging situations in their life and counselling is a therapy where you can feel free to talk about these issues and get support at a regular time in a safe and confidential place.
Counselling helps you explore difficult feelings, thoughts and behaviour and look at ways you can make changes.
It’s not about giving you advice or telling you what you should do but aims to assist you in gaining a better understanding of yourself and your situation and finding ways to move forward and live your life more positively. Importantly by gaining awareness of yourself and situations, changes can take place.
Counselling is completely confidential; I will listen without judgement. I can help people who feel trapped in a situation and not sure where to go or what to do next. Counselling allows you to talk openly and freely which you can not always do with family and friends.
What next and what to expect from the first session
You can phone or email me to arrange a free no-obligation telephone consultation and if it feels right arrange a 1st appointment. At the first appointment we will establish if counselling is going to be helpful to you and for you to find out if you’d like to work with me. I will ask you what is troubling you and what made you decide to contact me. I will ask you questions about yourself and your background and how your difficulties are affecting your life and general wellbeing. We will agree how we will work together.
