“A bird sitting on a tree is not afraid of the branch breaking, because its trust is not on the branch but on its own wings.
Always believe in yourself.” - Unknown

Welcome

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website : )

For most of us there are times when we need support to deal with difficult, emotional issues. Talking to family and friends can be very effective, but sometimes they can’t help and that may be because the issue feels too difficult to talk about. This is when recognising the need for and seeking professional therapy is a sign of strength and determination to live a productive, positive and meaningful life.

As counsellors and psychotherapists we provide a safe, supportive, empathic, non-threatening environment. With us you will feel able to talk freely in confidence and without fear of judgement. You will have the opportunity to explore feelings and create positive change for yourself.

We pride ourselves in being approachable so please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like further details to any aspect of our counselling and psychotherapy services.

Counselling

About Counselling and Psychotherapy

“The first step to living the life you want, is leaving the life you don’t want. Taking that first step forward is always the hardest. But then each step forward, gets easier and easier. And each step forward, get you closer and closer. Until eventually, what had once been invisible, starts to be visible. And what had once felt impossible, starts to feel possible.” Karen Salmansohn

What is Counselling?

Counselling is the act of helping you, our client, to see things more clearly, or perhaps from a different viewpoint. It can highlight the way you are feeling and what you think about the problem you have sought help for. This can enable you to focus on your feelings, emotions, experiences, or behaviours, ultimately to help you make positive changes.

How can Counselling help me?

As your therapist we will aim to help and encourage you to trust yourself, make your own choices and find your own answers. In doing so, counselling can help you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, increasing your self-esteem and confidence and enabling you to live your life more fully.

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is where we encourage you, our client, to go back to your earlier experiences and explore how these experiences affect your current problem and how it is making you feel. In this way we help you to become aware of events which you were previously unaware of.
