How could counselling help you?
Sometimes life can be hard. We can feel anxious, depressed, confused or alone. We may struggle to find happiness in ourselves, and our relationships with others. We may be trying to come to terms with loss or abuse. There may be things from the past that still trouble us, and it might not be easy to discuss our problems with friends or family.
It can be a relief to talk in confidence with someone who will truly listen and see things from our own point of view. Someone who can help us make sense of our feelings and work with us at our own pace towards finding solutions.
I will provide you with a safe and supportive space in which you are free to be yourself, without the worry of being judged or criticised. A space in which you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you, and explore ways in which you can begin to lead a happier, more fulfilling life.
I am also trained in the clinical use of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) techniques, which allow you to catch negative thought patterns that can tip you into a downward spiral, and help to put you back in control of your life.
Face-to-face sessions are available in Shipley. Online and telephone counselling available in other areas.
