Victoria Crossland. (Clear Your Mind Counselling) registered MBACP
Are you experiencing some level of Anxiety, Stress or Depression where some area of your life feels difficult or maybe life in general has become hard to cope with. Whether this difficulty is related to a specific event, circumstances social interaction challenge or in relationships at work or school. Emotions can become overwhelming and prevent you approaching daily tasks and specific activities. Which can result in feelings of sadness, fear, lonelyness, frustration and sometimes cause you to withdraw, act out and not feel yourself.
Counselling can help support you to explore how you feel in the current circumstances or situations and bring a deeper understanding.of why you feel the way you do. We are all unique and certain things effect us differently and taking the step to seek therapy can be a large step. However i offer a free initial confidential consultation to discuss your needs to see if working together will be of benifit. This can be talked through either on the phone or in my room based in yeovil.
How i work
i work in a caring, respectful and empathic manner focusing on what you bring and choose to explore and act only in your best interest. By offering my whole self in a therapeutic relationship my wish is for you to feel safe and secure to be honest with yourself, without feeling judged. With space to explore and reflect on your thoughts, feelings and reactions. I seek to gain an insight into how it is for you and promote your ability to understand yourself more deeply , to enhance your opportunity for you to live your life more fulfilling and more comfortably.
Having undertaken specific training and gained a wealth of experience in Bereavement. I fully appreciate and acknowledge the uniqueness of a client’s distress when someone dies. Whilst grief and continuous grieving naturally happens, the varied and difficult emotions that can emerge, can feel overwhelming. Talking through things at an understandably difficult time with a professional who can listen and feel how it is for you, can be very valuable.
I hold clinics in my room in yeovil Town centre and will if needed honour requests where possible to visit clients at home or in Residential Care organisations.
