Counselling is talking things out for a healthy sense of well-being
Counselling allows you to discuss your problems and any difficult feelings you may encounter in a safe, confidential environment.
Simply, it is a process people seek when they want to change something in their lives or simply explore their thoughts and feelings in more depth.
I have listed a few notes on what happens next , to give you a better understanding.
I offer you a free telephone consultation.
I can offer you a 30 introductory session for £30. . This is so we can meet, in a relaxed, confidential place and you can get a feel of how counselling would be and if it is something you would like to explore . I will explain how counselling can offer you the space to explore your thoughts and feelings and the different ways in which I work as an Counsellor. You may wish to explore anxiety; common mental health issue; loss; alcohol; drug ; sexual abuse or low self esteem / confidence.
You may decide straight away you would like to proceed with counselling or you may wish to go home and think further about your decision. Either of these is fine and I would urge you to take this time if you need to. You may call or e-mail me if you have any questions.
Contact me by e-mail or phone to arrange starting your counselling. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly but initially I would suggest weekly appointments to start.
I offer sessions on a Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and some evenings on request.
Session fee £50 for 50 minutes.
