Madeleine Duncan-Booth MBACP Dip. Counselling
Update: I am currently taking on clients for phone and online sessions during the Coronavirus outbreak.
Do you feel bruised by life, as if the slightest thing could open up the pain all over again?
Are you driven but worried everything could crash around you if you stop?
Always ‘doing’, never ‘being’ is hard and can sap your confidence and leave you feeling low, anxious and sometime losing connection with your true self.
Life can be challenging and throw us off balance, this can change. It is normal to struggle from time to time but you don’t have to be alone.
Together we can explore how you feel, who you are and what you really need, even if you aren’t really sure of what that is right now.
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+.
