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 your needs as an individual, in a way that will best suit you. I work very closely to address the issues that are causing you the most concern. I work within a person-centred framework which incorporates cognitive behavioural therapy, which aims to identify and alter unhelpful thought patterns.
Most common areas that I work with are:
- Stress at work and generally feeling stressed out
- Relationship difficulties (heterosexual and gay)
- Anxiety and worry
- Panic attacks
- Feeling low, depressed and without motivation
- Low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence
- Loss of a loved one by death or in a relationship
- Mild eating disorders
Many people feel substantially different after only a few sessions of counselling.
