Counselling Liverpool, NorthWest Merseyside, Registered BACP Member (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.)
Thanks for checking out my webpage. I offer counselling in Liverpool in the Aigburth Rd and town Centre for individuals who are experiencing emotional difficulties personally or professionally in their lives. I currently offer a number of approaches tailored towards the clients needs. From Person- Centres, CBT, EMDR, and couple therapy etc.
Engaging in therapy can be a daunting prospect to under take it takes courage, strength and a desire to live a more authentic fulfilling experience. Mental and emotional trauma’s may have a profound impact overall, in terms of self-esteem confidence, anxiety depression, unhelpful behaviours and coping strategies. When we are struggling, the body and mind can adopt unhelpful behaviour patterns, to cope which evidently can debilitate us even further by being stuck in the experience, unable to progress to a more helpful narrative.
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 at 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 Aigburth Rd as well as telephone, Skype, zoom sessions if required. 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 for a telephone consultation or via email, if you require further information or questions you might have in regards to counselling enquiries.
