Is Counselling For Me?
Making the decision to engage in counselling can be a difficult one for many people. Often people feel that their issues are too insignificant to warrant seeing a counsellor, and fear feeling a fraud, or that they might be seen to be "making a fuss about nothing". Others can feel that their problems are far too big, that they might overwhelm the counsellor, or any other person that they might share them with. These are very normal feelings to have, and will be dealt with sensitively by a Professional Counsellor.
A Senior Accredited Counsellor and Senior Accredited Counselling Supervisor with the BACP, I have many years experience of working with a wide range of counselling issues, including those listed above. I offer Face to Face and Telephone Counselling for Individuals, and Face to Face Counselling for Couples.
I work with clients with a wide range of issues,
Anxiety and Stress
Marriage and Couple Counselling
Bereavement and Loss
For most people, Counselling can be a positive way forward. Counselling can be used as an aid to Personal Development and greater Self Awareness. A means to help cope with a personal crisis, such as an accident, work stress, bereavement, redundancy or relationship breakup. It can facilitate the exploration of highly sensitive subjects, like child abuse or sexual issues, or be used to work with more ongoing difficulties, like depression relationship difficulties, anxiety, phobias and stress.
