Counselling Liverpool, NorthWest Merseyside, Registered BACP Member (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.)
Welcome to my web page. I offer counselling in Liverpool for individuals who are experiencing emotional difficulties personally/professionally in their lives. 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. This can often be the result of Depression, Anxiety, stress, PTSD, bereavement, sexual abuse, divorce, confidence, self-esteem and many other contributing factors which can create a change in our mental and emotional well-being as a result of the experience or symptons.
It often involves a life changing circumstance or a wide range of troublesome feelings that may have evoked a change in how we feel , think and behaviour towards ourselves and other individuals/family members. These situations affect us in different ways and sometimes it can be difficult to put your finger on what exactly is wrong. You may just be aware that a present, you do not feel yourself as a result of a catalyst of emotions/events.
Counselling and CBT can help by working towards opening new path ways that will enable you to discover ways to change and adopt a more helpful outlook to the experience or circumstance.
" Note that this journey is uniquely yours, no one else's. So the path has to be your own. You cannot imitate someone else's journey and still be true to yourself."
I offer one to one counselling at my Childwall five ways medical centre, as well as telephone Skype counselling. In an ideal world counselling is done face to face as it enables the client and counsellor to understand each other as things such as body language and reactions can be taken into account. However I am conscious that we do not live in an ideal world and sometimes it is simply not possible to attend counselling in this way.
I am happy to discuss my service to establish what would best suite your circumstances in a safe and confidential environment. I am contactable me for a telephone consultation or via email if you require further information or questions you might have in regards to counselling enquiries.
