Can Counselling REALLY HELP me? Absolutely! From easing your distress, to learning techniques to calm and energise, to fascinating new outlooks - good times can come again!
"There is no mountain insurmountable, nor storm so rough, that should be travelled alone." Life can bring many challenges and we all need a little support, insight, and understanding, to find direction, strength, and enjoy the journey! Physical, emotional, social, spiritual - It can be done! We can work together to untangle hurt, pain, confusion, toward peace, fulfilment and hope.
Fully qualified and trained as an integrative counsellor, we can examine lifestyle, outlook, issues, relationships, meaning, purpose, direction - at whatever age, using models such as below.
How can these help you???
HUMANISTIC THERAPY develops your self trust, become more self aware, attuned and confident in your wonderful unique self and all you express yourself.
CBT THERAPY focuses on your thinking - is it is serving you? Are you self critical, or underconfident? Catastrophising? It weakens and retrains thought pathways into realistic, positive processes.
PSYCHODYNAMIC THERAPY brings awareness to hurtful past trauma that maintain poor self beliefs, unhelpful emotional reactions and behaviours that prevent healthy happier living. Self compassion will reframe those periods kindly, bringing choice and more freedom from the past.
POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY introduces gratitude, and happiness in the moment, this boosts your self-esteem, energy and vitality, building resilience and your love for life again.
MINDFULNESS, alongside BREATHING, RELAXATION AND GROUNDING techniques will help with anxious states, panic, and exhaustion, to become clearer, more productive, energetic and less reactive by training body and mind together for maximum effect.
Using these approaches you can finally move forward from awful pain and debilitating confusion toward a life of balance, value, hope, and even awe - a life to really live.

Sessions are held in a very homely private setting with free easy parking just outside.
Please feel free to text me on 07902429787 or email me at (or see link above) to arrange your first session. I'd love to hear from you!
Warmest wishes - Sharon.
