Is now the right time for you to invest in yourself? My curiosity lies within exploring your current challenges, what may be keeping you in the past, what may be enabling your current struggles and how you can utilise your strengths to help you to move forward. Life can be difficult to navigate, it provides opportunities but it is sometimes not an easy road to travel. It is during these challenging times when you may feel that you would like an opportunity to talk to someone, in a non-judgmental, confidential space. To be heard and understood, whilst also being open to gentle challenges.

I work in a person-centred manner which means that I value building a positive relationship with clients; working to create a safe and comfortable therapeutic environment. This means that I want you to feel able to talk and express yourself about anything that may be troubling you. We talk about whatever you chose, and you can do so without fear of judgement. This enables you to become more comfortable with things as you discuss your thoughts freely, giving you an opportunity to consider things from different perspectives and over time building your confidence to explore different options and possibilities that are open to you.

How to explain what counselling is... If you're holding a cup of coffee and somebody accidentally bumps into you, you will most likely spill a drop or two, or depending on the bump impact a few spoonfuls or more. If there had been tea or something else in your cup, the result would be the same. Your emotions and feelings are like the coffee, because sometimes when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen to us all) whatever is inside your cup will spill out. Sometimes life can be easier until you get bumped.....but then you may need somebody to talk to, this is where counselling can help.

Hi, my name is James and I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and Supervisor. I offer individual and couples counselling also supervision. Stress and Generalised Anxiety Disorder can be difficult to live with causing us to feel lost, overwhelmed and isolated. Work Related Stress is a common condition in a modern world full of pressures and demands, whether we work as part of a company or have our own business we are open to various trying situations and circumstances that leave us feeling vulnerable and unable to cope. At these times we often put ourselves last and find it hard to be available to family members, friends and peers.

Hi, I'm Nicola, a qualified Person-Centred counsellor. Do you experience times when things just get too much and although you may have a good network of family, friends or colleagues you just need a safe space where you can go to talk, not be judged and know that whatever is spoken about is confidential. Whatever is troubling you may stem from your childhood, a relationship, a traumatic event or something else but whatever it is, this maybe preventing you from living your life to the full. The first step can be daunting, but together we can explore your thoughts, your feelings which will enable you to gain a greater self worth.

Adoption Counsellors
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
