It is said that every journey starts with a single step and the first step starts with YOU ....
- Is anxiety or depression stopping you from getting the most out of life?
- Do you have relationship issues?
- Do you lack energy, have negative thoughts or feel frustrated?
- Do you feel somehow disconnected to your life or unfulfilled?
- Are you finding it difficult to process your thoughts / feelings?
- Have you found yourself at a crossroad, lost or faced with redundancy?
- Are you finding it a struggle just getting through the day?
- Are you going through a separation, divorce or feel communication has broken down in your relationships?
Perhaps it is time to take control and counselling can help you do this.
HOW CAN I HELP YOU
Taking the first step is the hardest part of any journey and seeking help might be the first step for you. It can be very lonely in troubled times and hard to turn to family or friends, perhaps you feel they will not be able to understand. Sharing your personal world may be difficult to embark upon.
But in my experience, counselling may help you find your own answers, healing, growth or it may simply give you a huge sense of relief to share your troubles.
Aims of Counselling
- Relief from emotional pain
- Increased self-worth
- Trusting yourself and trusting others
- Improved overall sense of wellbeing & confidence
Whereas Counselling seeks to heal psychological or emotional issues, coaching can be seen as a way to optimize your life from a more stable ground. You may found yourself at a crossroads and perhaps you are feeling trapped, dissatisfied or full of energy but just not sure where to point it, personal coaching is about action and bridging the gulf between whom we are and where we want to be.
It may be that your needs fall somewhere within the spectrum between counselling and life coaching. I may propose an integrated approach for you - Personal Consultancy (Integrating Counselling & Coaching) which may assist you with the process of internal as well as external harmonisation and development within a safe and confidential environment.
At the first meeting I will ask some questions about you and your hopes and aims for coming to the session. This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions of me and find out if I am the right Counsellor/Personal coach for you. Assuming we decide to work together at this first session we will make a contract to work together for an initial period e.g. for 6 sessions, before reviewing our work together and then deciding how we continue.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
