Many people think Counselling is something we need when we experience problems like anxiety, depression or overwhelming feelings of sadness, that challenge our coping mechanisms. However, in my view, Counselling should be seen in the same way as going to the hairdresser to get your emotional well-being shipshape. It is almost like trimming the dry split ends, to help you get emotionally healthy and ready for real-life again. Trimming the anxiety to a manageable length.
Just like some people need a short back and sides haircut others might need a new hair colour. Whatever your needs, you will be allowed to share your feelings in a safe space where there is no judgment. You work at your own pace and with your own challenges. It doesn’t matter what the challenge, the focus will be on supporting you when you need it most.
My journey made me more compassionate and open to other people, and the big emotions we might face. Different times in our lives bring different challenges. When we start off in life, we might need help choosing a partner, later in life, we might need help with, our careers, fertility, children, ADHD, death, anxiety, depression and feeling overwhelmed with curveballs like COVID. It may be very difficult to come to terms with these challenges and it is completely normal to feel overwhelmed. We all deal with things in different ways and sometimes it helps to verbalise our thoughts in a safe space that frees our minds from overthinking. Counselling and online therapy can be a way of acknowledging different needs and getting the support that is right for you.
I have been working as a Counsellor in private practice for more than 20 years. I have been part of an executive team in a Private Medical Practice since 2017 where I have been working with a General Practitioner and Psychiatrist. I am an Accredited Member of the NCS, ACC, and PTUK.
So why not give yourself an emotional "makeover" with colourful talking, a tint of exploring, and a few highlights of understanding.
Discovery session (first session) at no cost.
Who can benefit and how?
* EMDR is the first line of intervention for PTSD.
* We attend the gym, meditation, yoga, drama and piano - why not a session with an emotional support purpose!
* We all need time to work through all those BIG emotions.
* Partners, individuals or as parents we could all do with a helping hand.
* We all need time to make sense of our emotions.
Initially, we will have an online discovery session, and it will take about 20 minutes. It will be a session to introduce and share the things we are going to explore!
How does it work?
* Safe space
* One-to-one online sessions every week.
* Each session lasts 45 minutes.
* In the comfort of your own home.
