Counselling is an excellent opportunity for you to talk in confidence about anything you might be struggling with either currently or in the past. Whatever the issues, Counselling offers you the space and time to focus on the things bothering you.
My clients have described me as a warm, caring, welcoming person, who understands first hand that it can be difficult to talk about sensitive issues and the effect these can have on you and others.
Whether you are struggling with stress or worry, feelings of shame or guilt or one of the many other issues commonly felt throughout our lives, you do not need to face them alone. I am here to listen to your concerns, worries, without judging you, and to respect that you are an individual with your own thoughts and feelings. I will provide you with a safe, accepting and supportive place to explore these thoughts and feelings in your own time. You will learn to understand yourself better, identify where change needs to happen and be able to communicate better. This in turn will help you to become more confident, kinder to yourself, calmer, leading to a happier life.
Please feel free to either give me a call or email me if you would like to have a chat about what to expect during counselling and whether it is something you would like to consider.
