SANDRA KUTNER Registered Counsellor MBACP Ad. Dip
- Are you feeling overwhelmed by anxiety?
- Is depression making it harder to motivate yourself?
- Are you avoiding your thoughts for fear of painful feelings?
By seeking counselling now you know in your heart that you may want to feel more emotionally settled.
If repeated patterns of negative thinking are affecting your daily functioning, together we can explore what is going on in your life that is causing anxiety or depression.
By engaging with counselling I would help you share difficult thoughts and feelings in a safe, non-judgemental space. We would focus on coping strategies you may have unconsciously put in place to protect yourself in the past. In times of insecurity it is difficult to show ourselves compassion and self-care. We can introduce self care into our work until it becomes a part of who you are.
What you can expect from our First Session
Our initial session would give you an insight into the counselling relationship. Whilst this session is yours to experience, I would take a history to gain insight into your past and present. We would talk through the contract and our commitment. There is no pressure to return beyond the first session as you may feel I am not the Counsellor for you. I also offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation ahead of an initial session.
