Struggling to Cope?

As we rapidly approach Christmas, many people find this a hard time of year emotionally. With the stress of organising or the sadness of remembering, this can be a tough time for people of all ages & backgrounds. Even after the festivities have finished, emotions are heightened for many reasons & counselling may help you to put things in perspective.

Based in Bourne End, I have worked as a volunteer counsellor, set up a support group for people with a Chronic Illness/pain, created & run a local community website & have also written an Agony Aunt column for one of our local newspapers.

So What Does Counselling Involve?

Counselling gives you the opportunity to have some quality, personal time for yourself. It gives you time to talk about any issues or concerns with an experienced therapist who will hear & understand you in a non-judgemental way.
You will have the valuable time to explore your thoughts & feelings, & reflect on your life looking at the past, present & opportunities for the future. By working through your difficulties you can make changes that suit you & give you a more fulfilling life.
Each session is client led & non-directive, meaning you are in total control of the areas you wish to explore.

There are no limits on how many sessions you can have but we can discuss this during your initial appointment. I work within the ethical framework of the BACP which gives you the assurance that I have trained & practice to a high standard.

Therapy can help you with many issues including:
* Depression, Stress & Anxiety
* Relationships
* Eating Disorders
* Abuse
* Bereavement & Loss
* Health Issues
* Life Changes & Transitions
* Addictions
* Self-Harm
* Self-Esteem

All sessions are strictly confidential & last 50 mins which are normally on a weekly basis.

No referrals needed & I can usually offer an appointment within a couple days. Concessions are available.

Christmas isn’t always a fun time for everyone.

As we all go about our lives planning for Christmas & New Year, some people will be hiding a secret, a secret that all is not well in their world.

Whether a person is feeling depression, grieving or having relationship problems, these feelings don’t just stop because it’s Christmas. Mental health doesn’t care what time of year it is or who you are with & we all need a little support at different times in our lives. I think talking therapies are only just starting to become an acceptable way to help, rather than a luxury that is put to the bottom of the list of things to do.

Self care is as important, especially if you care for others or even to function on a daily basis. It may not be a quick fix but it certainly points you in the right direction to a better life.

I have moved from a therapy room into the online counselling area after dismissing it for years, assuming that a “face to face” session is the only way to work. But after realising that are many people who work shifts, can’t travel, have financial difficulties or perhaps don’t actually want to be in a room with a therapist, I feel online/Skype is an essential service to offer. You can be anywhere in the country & still benefit from this service.

Although it’s unusual, the price is shown in the advert to avoid those who have financial difficulties feeling awkward asking about the cost.

If you think this will help you unravel your life, please email me & I will give you a call to discuss what would suit you best.
