How can I help you? How would it be if you could:
I am an experienced counsellor and supervisor, with a private therapy practice conveniently situated in Skelmersdale, with easy access from Liverpool, Southport, Burscough and Ormskirk.
Although my expertise is in loss and bereavement counselling and therapy, I have also worked with hundreds of people with a diverse range of difficulties, including:
Through my counsellor training and my own personal experience, I understand how loss or bereavement can turn your life upside down; it can feel devastating, and hard to live with new feelings of anger, guilt, depression, anxiety, fear, or loneliness. I’m here to support you in what might be the most difficult time in your life. I will help you to cope with overwhelm, and to find your way to a happier life.
Usually the main approach we will use for your counselling - talking allows you to tell me your 'story', and what is going on for you. The benefits to you include feeling accepted, respected, and not judged, and hearing your thoughts out loud can help you see things more clearly.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a proven problem-based approach used to deal with problems including depression, anxiety, panic attacks and fears. Using simple written exercises to look at negative automatic thoughts and behaviour, which can easily be used at home.
Sometimes referred to as 'tapping', EFT is a very simple self-help technique based on energy points on the upper body, similar to those used in acupuncture (but without the needles!). Simple to learn and to practice, EFT can bring huge relief of many emotional and physical concerns, including, but not limited to, phobias, trauma, anxiety, cravings, and pain.
Simple and enjoyable techniques which help you to feel calm, less anxious, less depressed, sleep better, and be more in control of your actions and emotions.
Simple and enjoyable approaches using drawing, writing, toy models, stones or sand - helpful to uncover deep emotions when you can't think of the words to describe how you're feeling. Absolutely no artistic skill required!
If you’d like to find out more about how I can help you, I’d love to have a free chat with you for about 15 minutes on the phone or online with Zoom or FaceTime, when you can ask any questions you have, and get a feeling for how we might get along, with no obligations to book further sessions of therapy
