What is Counselling?

Counselling is the provision of a special relationship with a trained professional person who will help you to explore difficulties and problems in your life.

Many people find that talking things through with someone who has been trained to listen, and to support them without judgement, leaves them feeling less confused and better able to make the changes which they need to improve the quality of their lives.

 I am now working ONLINE only, and counselling will be done via Facetime or Whats app video or Messenger or mobile or landline.  Face to face counselling is no longer available at present.

Who comes for counselling?

All of us go through periods when life seems to lose its meaning. Memories of painful events in the past and present; and worries about the future can all make it difficult to cope with everyday life.

Sometimes people are lonely, anxious or experiencing low mood (often referred to as depression); worried about their addictions (alcohol, drugs, smoking, eating the ‘wrong’ food etc); eating habits perhaps; suicidal thoughts; trauma from the past or present; the physical and mental effects of getting older; life-threatening illnesses; stress of modern living; past & present abuse/difficulties; their relationships, their marriage or family life in general or indeed their work situation, asking themselves “am I in the right role”, or job; “am I being treated well in work; am I happy there?” “Do I fit in, and if not, why not?”  So many questions, we ask ourselves.

Or they may be experiencing, or have experienced, sexual or domestic abuse; anger issues; childhood emotional neglect;  issues around relating to others; a bereavement, divorce or separation; redundancy; employment difficulties; miscarriage/termination, inability to conceive; disability; sexual identity or are just ‘out of sorts’ with a vague feeling of “Why am I feeling like this”? “What is this anxiety?” Feelings of “Im not good enough”. And wanting to seek some support.

In fact any kind of loss.

Some may want to relate more easily to others, or may be looking for more meaning to life.  Or just be confused as to whats happening to them in life.
