Paula Gosling Diploma in Dip Couns, Dip CBT, Reg MBACP
Counselling service I offer is for clients who are feeling dissatisfied with life or struggling with difficult emotions, such as: anxiety, depression, anger, jealousy, guilt or shame.
Working with the clients in the sessions changing their thinking to change the behaviours leads to a more balanced life through goals achievable.
Some of the destructive behaviours can be over eating, addiction to gambling, alcohol, drugs, pornography or sex.
If clients are struggling to cope with difficult life events, such as bereavement, loss or abuse or low self-esteem, lack of confidence then exploring these emotions in the sessions will help to life a more fulfilled and well rounded lives.
I work with Couples to work with difficult issues in their relationship.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Abuse (Emotional, Mental, Physical, Sexual) in the sessions clients work through the trauma of the experience that they have gone through and help them to re build their self-belief and confidence. I will assist clients in their understanding that abuse is not their fault and I give them a space where they can be heard without being judged.
Addictions (Alcohol, Drugs, Exercise, Gambling, Shopping, Smoking, Sex, Work) clients often become addicted to something as a way of trying to get some kind of control in their lives. In our sessions we work together to understand how addiction leaves clients feeling more out of control.
Relationships (Couple’s counselling, divorce counselling, issues around sex/intimacy, infidelity)
Sessions will help couple’s in counselling who are struggling to communicate, or because they are having issues with intimacy or their sex life is being affected. We will explore the options and reasons for the change in their relationship.
Stress (Money, health, relationships, work)
Stress plays a massive role in a lot of clients lives. Sometimes work, relationships, money and/or health concerns can cause them to feel under a lot of pressure, counselling will help to unravel the confusion.
