Ming Wan MA, Counsellor & Psychotherapist
I work with all age groups from my practice in Wollaton and Beeston. I work on a one to one basis to help you develop a clearer understanding of yourself and to raise awareness of your options. Our work will be tailored around your needs as we are all unique individuals who experience life differently. You may be repeating patterns that affect your life. I can provide a welcoming environment for you to share your feelings, hopes and fears.
Today, more and more people struggle at some point in their lives to cope with growing pressures around them. I can provide an opportunity for you talk, confidentially, about emotional difficulties such as general anxiety, relationship issues, feeling sad, depression and family issues.
For many people there may be no opportunity to talk about their difficult issue or worries with someone close to them. It can help to speak to someone independent and unbiased when these uncomfortable and difficult feelings begin to affect your everyday life and prevent you from moving forward.
I provide a confidential and collaborative environment where we can gently explore the thoughts and feelings affecting your life. By working together in this way, you can start to see the triggers or patterns which are slowing down your progress. I will work to your pace and direction to gently explore difficult issues to find solutions for a more rewarding future.
