Counselling Liverpool, NorthWest Merseyside, Registered BACP Member (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.)
Welcome, Are you experiencing difficulties emotional or in your personally life?! It happens to most people at some stage in their life. Talking to someone can be a daunting prospect to under take when you are experiencing changes in your emotional, mental and physical well-being. This may have a profound impact on you overall from how you feel about yourself, motivation levels, thoughts and behaviour changes or patterns. Depression, Anxiety, stress, PTSD, bereavement, sexual abuse, divorce and many other contributing factors can create a change in our mental and emotional well-being as a result of the experience or symptons.
I personal have experienced a number of issues/difficulties throughout my life as a younger woman. However, it was the trauma of the death of my younger brother that lead me towards my long term desire to become a counsellor. This life event turned my world upside down. It was the tidal wave of emotions that I experienced which impacted on me mentally, emotional, and physically, throughout my experience of grief, that left me feeling debilitated, numb and lifeless. This resulted in me seeking counselling in aid of helping me to work towards dealing with my emotions and trauma in a safe and confidential setting with a professional counsellor. During this period I lost all sense of self which left me feeling fragmented and broken.
It was my experience as a client and witnessing the impact and effect it had on my individual family members that generated a desire and a passion which eventually lead me towards my chosen carer to become a qualified counsellor. During this period my whole perception and outlook on life changed as a result of my behaviour, through my thoughts and feelings. In accessing my own personal therapy I have learned positive coping strategies that have enabled me to manage my feeling and emotions at that particular period of my life. This has enabled me to to understand myself and the trauma surrounding the experience in aid of working towards living a more fulfilled life. I have also gained further knowledge and insight in working with counselling clients both from a person-centred approach ( long term) and from a CBT perspective.
