Practice description

Welcome to Lifeline Counselling.

Lifeline Counselling provides face to face long and short term Person Centred and Integrative Counselling to individuals, couples, qualified counsellors, counselling students and EAP referrals.

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 the chance to develop. Beginning to understand your thoughts and feelings and recognising your individual choices will become clearer, encouraging you to move forward and make changes with increased strength and direction.

Your counselling journey is unique to you and there is no right or wrong way to begin your counselling. From the very first moment and throughout your personal journey, I will be with you to listen and work hard at encouraging a deeper and clearer understanding of your circumstances and choices, creating improved self awareness and confidence and encouraging a deeper level of personal satisfaction and inner peace.

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.

"Discover your own personal journey to find the courage to change and move forward - taking time to talk is worthwhile"

My first session

Your first session will be an assessment...

this will open up the opportunity for us to meet one another,

for you to see the environment I work from,

to experience some idea of what counselling might feel like for you,

to decide if it feels right for us to work together,

to complete the assessment paperwork.

This all helps us to get to know one another a little better.

The session will take about one hour with no obligation for you to book your first session straight afterwards, unless you feel that this is the right decision for you.
