Why Counselling and why now?
The reasons you are seeking emotional support through counselling at this point in your life are unique to you, and can be explored in your sessions.
“Working with Clare has been life changing. We have covered topics from dealing with anxiety, to working through difficult past experiences, to learning how to maintain wellbeing in the everyday. It has helped me make connections that would have been impossible on my own.”– ‘Joseph’
Perhaps something in your life is not working for you. It may be that ways of coping that you’ve found helpful in the past, are no longer helpful now.
You could feel that you want and need something in your life to change.
Counselling can offer a safe space to reflect, and to get support in taking a fresh look at your situation, helping you to gain different perpectives on it.

What Counselling can offer you
“And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”– Anaïs Nin, writer
Your counselling sessions are an opportunity to be listened to and to listen to yourself. This is a safe space to take a look at what you want to change, and at anything that may be getting in the way of realising your hopes for yourself.
This is also a safe space to explore worries and fears that may feel overwhelming. Counselling offers the chance to develop ways to steady and resource yourself through tough times.
Your counselling can support you in finding balance, and making choices that feel right for you – respecting you as the expert on your own life.
Support in finding the balance you want to create.
