Helping You

Comments Off on Helping You

My job as a counsellor is about helping you, deciding to go to see a counsellor can be a scary business and not everyone is convinced it will work for them, however counselling works for many people and for a whole range of problems.

There was once a stigma that people who attended counselling were weak or not very well, this is a very judgemental and old style way of thinking as people who recognise a problem and want to move forward and find ways past something they feel is holding them back in their life are not only brave but show great strength and determination.  They are the strong ones!

OCD, anxiety, depression, anger and relationships counselling are but a few issues that counselling can help with.

Why I became a counsellor?

Quite a few years ago now, a life changing event caused me to re-evaluate my future.  With the help of my family and friends and a great counsellor, I began to move forward, to understand what makes me who I am and I learnt how to look after myself, that was a particularly steep learning curve.

I then went on to train to become a counsellor in Bury St Edmunds and now I am able to provide my clients with what my counsellor did for me:

  • Respect

  • Was non judgmental

  • Respected my confidence

  • Listened and really heard me

  • Guided me but never told me what to do

  • Helped me learn to look after myself emotionally

  • Helped me with coping strategies

  • Helped me acknowledge where my present actions came from

I offer one to one counselling to explore any issues you may have confidentially and in a safe and quiet environment.  At the initial session which is up to 60 minutes long, we will discuss your requirements and what you would hope to achieve from counselling.  Subsequent sessions are 45 minutes long.
