How to choose a counsellor? Finding the right counsellor when you are already feeling at an emotional low can seem difficult.

Are you feeling that you would like some support to get through a difficult time? Buried emotional problems tend to rise to the surface every time you are feeling stressed, or suffer depression, or become anxious.

Counselling helps to deal with these issues in a safe, secure, confidential space and will help you to get control back in your life. Reaching out to contact a counsellor can seem to be most difficult, but having done that you will be on the way to help.

I offer counselling to people who feel that they would like some support , whether they are feeling depressed, stressed or are struggling with a different set of problems.

You will find it a relaxing setting with easy street parking.

Counselling (therapeutic counselling) helps to explore feelings and offers a client a regular space and time talking to a counsellor about a particular issue or difficulty that is distressing to them, such as anxiety, panic attacks, relationship problems, job loss, or bereavement.

  • Counsellor

    In counselling the client tells the counsellor as much or as little as they want. It is the counsellor’’s role to listen to the client and help them explore their thoughts and feelings, in a confidential, non-judgemental environment.

  • Playtherapist

    Therapeutic Play Therapy or Therapeutic Play is a method of helping / counselling children with behavioural and / or emotional problems to heal themselves. Play is the child’s natural medium of self expression – it’’s essential for development and play therapy gives a child the opportunity to ‘play out ‘ their feelings and problems with a therapeutic objective.

  • Skype Counselling

    Skype is an ideal medium to use when the client perhaps has difficulty with new situations, because of anxiety around leaving their home. Sometimes people who live in different parts of the country would like to become a client because of an expertise that I have, or because they want to see a counsellor outside their area.

  • Supervision

    Clinical supervision is offered to counsellors, and anyone working in helping professions such as nurses, social workers, employment advisors, etc.
