New Start

Counselling

Welcome,


People come to counselling for many different reasons. There are times when life feels unsatisfactory or perhaps overwhelmingly difficult; when we are stuck, confused and don’t know where to turn. We often wish that we could make a new start but don’t know how to go about it. Talking to a counsellor can be very different from talking to a friend or relative. I will listen to you without making judgments, helping you to explore your concerns and difficulties in a confidential setting. As a counsellor, I don’t give advice but will help you to find your own inner strengths, resources and solutions. I will use my theoretical knowledge, skills and experience to help you to make choices and sort out problems, leading you to a richer, more meaningful life.


New Start offers short and longer term counselling for adults during daytime and some evenings. I accept referrals from individuals, counsellors, GPs, EAP schemes, social workers support workers, Human Resource departments, managers, self-help groups and any other interested organisations. I also offer other services such as supervision, training , mentoring and hypnotherapy.


Whether you've come to my web site via your own search, a friend's recommendation, suggestion of a healthcare worker or one of my professional organisations, why not contact me to discuss how I can help. If you’re interested but feel unsure, take a look at my FAQ page. Alternately, you can email or call for an informal, confidential discussion.


I look forward to meeting you.
