Hello & welcome to Green Counselling.
Deciding on counselling can be a life changing decision, and taking that first step is not an easy task. I understand how hard it might be to acknowledge and talk about the unspoken thoughts and feelings that you have been having, how scary this might be and perhaps the idea of this leaves you feeling vulnerable. As an experienced, empathetic and respectful psychotherapist and counsellor based in Southsea and Fareham, I can help and support you with whatever is troubling you and has drawn you to consider having some counselling in the first place.
Do you feel that you are never really yourself, that the real you is guarded and hiding? Do you wear a mask?
Sometimes pretending to be someone that you are not can really take its toll and leave you feeling sad, drained and exhausted.
Do you become upset about the way you behave or react to situations? Do you struggle with controlling and understanding your emotions?
The things we say and do can hurt others, but we also end up hurting ourselves, continuing the cycle of pain.
Sharing how you are feeling and thinking in counselling can feel like lifting a weight off your shoulders. I offer you the opportunity to explore, understand and confront your behaviours and negative thought patterns in a safe, secure and reassuring environment.
A little about me: I am a professional, approachable and supportive counsellor, who offers personally tailored and non-judgmental counselling to everyone who needs support. Before you commit to booking a session, I'm more than happy to talk on the phone if you would like, or you can email me. There's no charge for either, and it could help you to take the first steps towards finding the peace in your world that you deserve.
