"There is a crack in everything - that's how the light gets in" (Leonard Cohen). I love this. We all have problems, things we don't like about ourselves, things we struggle with over and over. It's part of being human, none of us are completely 'sorted'. But sometimes we feel overwhelmed, desperate, alone.... the cracks are too big, the light isn't getting in. Or we feel stuck, frustrated, exhausted, going round in circles, nothing will ever change. Perhaps you feel you can't be the real you. Maybe you feel like this a lot, or maybe it's new for you and your usual coping/support isn't working. Maybe you don't know what's wrong.

Hello, I'm Chantal, a fully qualified BACP Accredited integrative counsellor. My focus is centred on you as the client, and I will draw on a range of theoretical and practical training in a way that is most supportive to you and your issues. . I am not there to just simply listen; I see the work as a collaboration between the two of us. I will, very much, be a part of the process with you and I am willing to say what I am seeing. You may begin to see patterns of responding that are no longer helpful and with this increase in self-awareness my aim is to support you in making any changes necessary to help restore your well-being.

I offer a confidential, safe space to talk about those issues that are currently causing you concern and emotional pain. It can help to talk to an independent, qualified person when we have run out of ways of helping ourselves. It may be that you feel that you keep repeating the same mistakes in relationships or you can't find the enthusiasm to make the most of life, or problems such as anxiety and low self esteem are holding you back. You may feel that you would like to have greater insight into who you are or work out how you want your life to be.

When we are experiencing difficulties and our usual means of coping aren’t enough, it can be difficult to know where or who to turn to. Therapy can provide a non-judgemental and expectation free space to reflect on what is going on for us, what changes we might want to make and how we might go about this.

We all struggle with difficulties at times; and it can be a great relief to face them with the right help. I have 20 years’ experience as a counsellor and offer counselling to individuals in a quiet, secure space. My aim includes helping you come to a clearer understanding of what has brought you to counselling, and supporting you in finding the way forwards that feels right for you. Perhaps surprisingly, our difficulties can become a source of change and growth.

My ideal client is able to reflect on their emotions and what's happened to them in their lives and relationships. They have the time and space to give to this. They have some motivation to change and can take some responsibility for the work we do together. We would work together to explore what they need and identify personal goals, this may change over the course of therapy.

Are you struggling to make sense of how you’re thinking and feeling or finding it difficult to express yourself in your relationships with others? Are you overwhelmed but feel you can’t burden anyone with your worries? If trying to cope is making you more anxious, depressed or causing problems in your relationships, you're not alone. We can all feel overwhelmed at times and in need of support but you don’t always have to struggle to work things out on your own.

You may be seeking counselling for a specific issue, such as anxiety, abuse, bereavement or perhaps you are feeling stuck or out of sorts. Whether you are facing personal struggles, relationship issues, or simply seeking personal growth, I see counselling as an opportunity for you to safely explore your emotions and to help you develop coping strategies. Life experiences can leave us feeling angry, ashamed, anxious, and sad. I believe that we don't have to be identified by these experiences. Together we can explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe, non-judgemental and supportive space.
