Michelle Qureshi MBACP
As your Counsellor, I want to ensure that you feel comfortable, relaxed and welcomed with my warmth in our sessions together. I understand that counselling can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming for some, so I hope I can make this process easier for you by answering your questions and any concerns you have via email/phone.
I use an Integrative approach (Psychodynamic and Person Centred) to help you explore what is causing your problems in life and create a bespoke program to help you begin to approach life in a more open and productive way. This will help you gain a greater insight into your problems which leads to a better wellbeing.
As an experienced counsellor I am aware that we all, at some point may find life a struggle, reflect on a different future, feel alone, overwhelmed, worried and guilty. This can leave you feeling worried, anxious and down. It can be just at these times when it feels difficult to reach out and ask for help. Counselling with myself in a confidential setting will help you work through those barriers. Our sessions together will give you a chance to talk through your worries; think about where you are right now; find out more about yourself and, over time, give you more choices about your future.
I want to help you reach your goal. I have aided many people through this process and seen them flourish to a more confident, happy and enriched self.
If you would like to make a change and would like to start this therapeutic journey together, then email or phone me to arrange your first session. You can decide whether you would like the sessions to take place at my home, at a centre, by telephone, Skype or at your home. After your first session you can decide whether you would like to continue with the counselling and if yes, then if the sessions are to take place weekly or fortnightly.
I have extensive experience working with men and women who have suffered from domestic abuse, bereavement, relationship issues, family issues, anger and pain.
I look forward to our therapeutic journey together.
