Need to talk, or make some changes?Confidential 1-1 counselling and support

How counselling can help:

is this a familiar feeling?

Is this a familiar feeling?  Does it feel like you're carrying a heavy weight?

 Would you like to be able to speak openly and honestly about your concerns?  You may be experiencing loss, sadness, guilt, anxiety, isolation, addiction/s, stress, grief, frustration, worry, relationship problems, depression or work-related issues.  

Perhaps you're looking to offload, stuck in a rut, or searching for more helpful coping strategies.  Are you at a crossroads?   Or carrying what feels like a backpack full of large stones?  There could be a big decision to make, difficulty saying no to others, or changes needed to improve your current situation.  Whatever the problem, let me help you sort it.

My person-centred therapeutic approach means that rather than judging or advising, I listen, understand, accept and believe.  It's about helping you to find the answers, exploring options for change, or getting clarification in order to move forward.  I'm   quite interactive, so you'll get a lot more than 'hmms' and 'uh-huhs' if you come to me for counselling or support. 

Sometimes people think that asking for help is a weakness - it's ok to learn to ask for what you need.  We don't do that enough, but often put others' happiness before ourselves.  Also, it's understandable to worry about showing your emotions. 

     Please be reassured that this is a normal part of therapy; you and your feelings will be treated with respect at all times.    

I aim to build a trusting therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable enough to be yourself. There's no homework or

        pressure.  We will work at your pace and you always choose the focus of your sessions.   

Counselling usually starts with weekly appointments, but then may move to fortnightly, or even monthly check-ins.

   Sessions are available during the day, some evenings, and Saturday mornings to fit in around your schedule.  


         Please ask about Walk and Talk Therapy if you'd prefer to be outside rather than in a traditional counselling setting.                                              

How would it feel to put down that heavy load?  Start living your best life!
