Counselling

Counselling can help with periods of difficulty or change

Counselling is not advice and may feel different from other types of help. It is a process where the counsellor helps you to explore your feelings openly, without judgement. It can help you to understand difficulties and develop your own resources to cope with them.

It can help you to navigate change, enable you to move forward, and empower you to enjoy life.

Areas of counselling I have experience of include:

  • Anxiety
  • Loss & Grief
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Bereavement
  • Abuse
  • Work stress
  • Relationship issues
  • Childhood issues
  • Redundancy
  • Illness
  • Trauma

Employing a person-centred approach (meaning I follow the pace and needs of the client) I listen closely and am non-judgemental. Applying various aspects of my training and counselling experience depending on your needs, I can help you to explore those areas of your thinking and behaviour with which you may be having difficulty, offering support and understanding in a non-critical way.

I undertake long-term work as well as short-term, goal-oriented work. Both long and short term work usually lead to clients feeling self-empowered, taking decisions, and making positive changes in their lives.

I offer one-to-one, face-to-face and online counselling for women. Sessions are 50 minutes long and I usually suggest starting with six sessions, although clients are not restricted to a set number of sessions and I hold regular reviews to assess progress.
