Adults and Couples Counselling

1 to 1 Counselling Sessions

 

I see adult clients privately and through EAPs and insurance companies. In the past I have also worked with adults through the NHS at GP surgeries in the Primary Care Sector.

 

We all experience difficulties, painful events and losses at various stages in our life. When we find ourselves at a crossroads or in crisis, the healthiest thing to do is spread the load by enlisting the support of others. Talking to a professional counsellor very often brings great relief.

You can expect to be listened to without being judged while being shown respect and empathy.

Counselling is about having a safe place where you can explore and express your issues, concerns and fears. Frequently it involves discovering, accepting and growing to love the inner person within you.

Counselling is not about magical cures or answers. There are no guarantees and it does require a certain level of commitment and willingness to work. It is not about being told what to do. If you require this kind of advice, then counselling is unlikely to meet your needs.

Very often life changes and transitions like: moving, changing jobs, stress, sexuality / coming-out, the beginning or ending of relationships, starting a family, mid-life crisis, bereavement or retirement can be very stressful, worrying, even depressing. Counselling may help you to work through these developmental stages in your life and grow towards a more satisfying future.

  • abuse

  • anger management

  • anxiety

  • bereavement

  • career

  • childhood issues

  • couples therapy

  • depression

  • domestic violence

  • eating disorders

  • family breakdown

  • self-harming

  • sexuality issues

Couples Counselling Sessions

 

Couples seen can be heterosexual, gay, lesbian or bisexual. The key is the relationship. I am not a 'sex therapist' but it is rare that couple therapy does not impinge upon sexual practices.hen

 

When I work with a couple, the couple is the client, not one partner or the other. The challenge, as I see it, in living together, is two people working closely in harmony with one another while, at the same time, each celebrating their own individuality.

 

Counselling is not about magical cures or answers. There are no guarantees and it does require a certain level of commitment and willingness to work. It is not about being told what to do.

 

I believe "Love is a verb." It is a doing word and to love successfully takes commitment and work!

  • The rate is £50.00 per hour
