Sheila Kleinmann MBACP
Sometimes life doesn't seem fair, we can feel overwhelmed, confused, anxious and sad, lost and vulnerable. Whatever you may be struggling with step by step I will be with you, to help bring about a calmness and balance to your life. I am experienced in many areas and I can offer you a safe and confidential space to explore your difficulties and together we can make a difference.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR FIRST SESSION
The counselling I offer, is a space to explore and untangle your difficulties and areas of your life that are troubling you, so that you can become more clear and start to make sense of your life and how you want to move forward.
Friends or families may be supportive, but it is sometimes difficult to confide in the people closest to you.
My approach is one of a caring and empathic nature where you can feel safe and be listened to and not be judged. I will strive to understand your world with warmth, patience and compassion.
I am open to everyone - Clients come to see me from all walks of life. I will work at your pace in a non-directive approach, providing you with the chance to share your story and thoughts whilst enabling us to work together through your feelings and thoughts and find the right path for you to take
I am a Person-Centred Counsellor - I am a Registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) I also hold a BACP Certificate of Proficiency
I am passionate about my work and adhere to the professional and ethical framework and code of professional conduct which assures confidentiality, equality and diversity to which I am fully committed.

At times we seem to be living in the 'Fast Lane' - too many hurdles to climb over - Allow yourself to change - Gift yourself with Change and Healing
Sometimes it helps to say things out loud. It can take a lot of courage to make that first initial step. Please get in touch
