Shifting Sands Counselling,  Pamela Mackenzie-Reilly MSc MBACP

About me

Taking the first step towards counselling can be daunting, especially if you've never done it before. If you have any questions, please contact me by telephone or email and I will be happy to talk them through with you. Alternatively - get in touch to arrange a free, no obligation first meeting ... and we can take it from there.

I work at your pace and in a way which best suits you. This means that I use a range of different therapeutic techniques depending on your preference, style and what you want from your sessions. You may find creative interventions, such as visualisation or artwork, to be particularly helpful, or you may feel more comfortable simply talking things through.

What I provide to all clients is a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. Within this setting I aim to encourage, help and support you to learn about yourself and to explore any problems you are facing.

You may wish to focus on specific issues or concerns over just a few sessions. Alternatively, I offer longer term therapy if you want to explore past events which are still impacting on you today.  I offer coaching if you wish to increase your self awareness, or work with you to achieve your goals or personal development. The choice is yours.
