Valerie Manners BA Psych. Dip Couns. MBACP
Right now you might be at your wits end and feeling quite apprehensive about seeing a counsellor. You may feel stressed and unsure about how best to address your issues of concern.
I work with individuals and couples in a way that will best suit you. I have experience working with private medical companies and GPs addressing work related issues and personal/relationship concerns. I practice within a person-centred framework which incorporates cognitive behavioural therapy, which aims to identify and alter unhelpful thought patterns and make you feel more positive.
Most common areas that I work with are:
- Relationship difficulties
- Family concerns including children and elderly parents
- Midlife crisis
- Health anxiety
- Stress at work
- Depression and low mood
- Anxiety and worry
- Panic attacks
- Lack of motivation
- Low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence
- Loss of a loved one by death or in a relationship
- Later life/retirement concerns
- Eating disorders
- LGBTQ issues
Many people feel substantially different after only a few sessions of counselling.
