Covid 19 Information
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and as part of my commitment to the well-being of my clients I am currently offering alternative methods of delivering counselling. I offer phone, video call and outdoor counselling options. Please check out my website for more information www.clearheartcounselling.co.uk
My Approach to Helping
I am trained in the person-centred approach- I work with you to explore your emotions, thoughts and feelings to find the best way forward in your current situation. At your first session; we discuss what has brought you to therapy and what it is you wish to focus on.
Daily interactions with family and friends can often leave us feeling as if we only talk about the everyday parts of our lives. Counselling is an opportunity for you to gain insight and perspective on your life; offering a bird’s eye view of what is going on in a safe and welcoming space.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I work with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, life transitions, trauma, bereavement, abuse, low mood, relationship issues, anger, addiction, redundancy, self-harm, gender and sexuality, spirituality and long term health conditions.
How Counselling Can Help
Counselling opens space for new possibilities and helps people rewrite their stories. Talking to a therapist can help us re-connect with the essence of who we are. A time and space to press the pause button and talk about what is happening within our lives and our relationships.
Get in touch
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to set-up a consultation. I look forward to speaking with you.
