Biography

Welcome to LifeLine Counselling.

LifeLine Counselling provides face to face long and short term Person Centred Counselling to individuals, couples, students and EAP referrals.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)

ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)

Taking the first step towards counselling can be a difficult decision…..if you are struggling…come and talk.

I will welcome you with warmth, without judgement in a safe setting, where I will work and listen with respectful compassion. I am a warm and caring Counsellor with a genuineness towards others.

It can take courage and strength to come and explore what may have become a very difficult situation for you.  By finding the space to share, self confidence and self worth has chance to develop,  Beginning to understand your thoughts and feelings, choices will become apparent, encouraging you towards a new mind set and enabling you to make the changes you want with increased strength and direction.

My practice is grounded in the Person Centred approach and I will work closely with you, offering you the opportunity to share those aspects of your life, feelings, thoughts and beliefs that have brought you to seek counselling.

Your counselling journey is unique to you and sometimes may raise challenges to your way of thinking, but throughout your counselling I will be with you to listen and work hard at encouraging a deeper and clearer understanding of your circumstances and choices.

Many people have found counselling and therapy a helpful way of exploring issues and difficulties in their lives. Finding new perspectives and ways of managing daily life, creating improved self awareness and confidence.

Are you feeling as though you need some support,  perhaps unsure where/who to turn to…?

Now might be the time to make contact and coming to talk could help.

Perhaps you may be finding it hard to cope with life in general, particularly if you have feelings of low mood or depression, perhaps finding it difficult to manage a specific concern in your life or life in general.  You may find it easier and more helpful to talk with someone face to face outside of your immediate social or family circle.

“Find the courage to change and move forward  – Time to Talk”
