Would counselling be right for you?
Being listened to and valued as a person, without being judged, is an important part of the counselling process. It allows an individual the space to reconnect with themselves, and find a way to discover and accept who they truly are.
Some examples of the issues which have brought clients to see me include:
Stress and anxiety; depression; feelings of hopelessness; relationship problems; bereavement; self development issues; work and career issues; loss; sexual abuse; emotional abuse; physical abuse; spiritual development; low self esteem; drug and alcohol misuse; chronic illness; adoption issues; anger management: emotional trauma; post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); compulsive behaviour.
Clients often struggle for years to cope with their lives or their relationships before they choose to come to counselling. My role is to assist my clients in finding solutions to the emotional pain they feel – pain which, for one reason or another, it has often proved very difficult to acknowledge or share in the past.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their ethical framework for good practice. Sessions are conducted on a one to one basis in confidence.
