Madeleine Duncan-Booth MBACP Dip. Counselling
Do any of these apply to you?
I feel anxious and am avoiding certain situations
I am ‘there’ for lots of people but find it hard to turn to others
I feel alone and am not enjoying things like I used to
I find it hard to say no and people take advantage of me
I put on a brave face but feel sad and depressed inside
I feel disconnected from those around me and don’t know how to reconnect
Life can be challenging and throw us off balance, it is normal to struggle from time to time but you don't have to be alone.
Counselling will give you the opportunity to pause, breathe, reflect, and be heard. An opportunity which can bring about greater understanding and self-awareness, fresh perspective, and a stronger sense of self.
I find that words often fail us – we cannot find the words to really express the spectrum of emotions we are feeling. Therefore, occasionally, with your permission and with your comfort level being the most important thing to me, I may introduce a creative way of working.
Working creatively may mean using stones, shells, drawings or small objects to bring a different focus to our work which may enable us to gain alternative valuable insights that support your healing.
I offer counselling to individuals from all backgrounds aged 16+.
