Mary Lim (Reg. MBACP) Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Welcome, and thank you for visiting my profile.
Life can feel really hard at times. Are you feeling scared, alone, worried, unwell, anxious, sad, low, or stressed? Have you lost somebody close to you and you're finding it hard to cope without them? Are your relationships with others going wrong, or feeling difficult? Do you have to make a decision and you don't know which way to turn?
Person-centred counselling and psychotherapy can help you. You don't have to struggle alone.
I will provide a space where we can explore your problems, thoughts and feelings at your pace, and in your own way. I work in a non-judgemental, empathic, accepting way, to enable you to feel safe enough to explore the things that can feel really difficult to talk about.
Working in this way can help you to feel less alone, and to see things in a new light. You may find that your self-confidence increases, and you may identify things about your life that you want to change. You may start to understand your relationships more clearly, and find ways to improve them. You may find healthier ways of coping. Counselling can provide a release from difficult feelings and thoughts that you may not feel able to talk about with anyone else.
I can support you through the process of change, if you choose to.
You can bring any issue to counselling, and you will not be judged.
My practice is based at The Wishing Well, in Bromsgrove Town Centre. This warm and friendly environment is close to public transport links, as well as within easy reach of the M5. There are multiple public carparks nearby, as well as a cafe on site.
