About me and my therapy practice
Are you feeling trapped or overwhelmed. Is everything getting on top of you, or are you having difficulty dealing with issues in your life.
I am Bernie, an experienced counsellor and I might be able to help you.
I have nine years experience in the N.H.S counselling at a G.P. surgery, hospital and medical centre.
Often talking through these issues can help you to clarify your thoughts, feelings and show how these can impact on your behaviour.
I offer a safe, professional and confidential setting and can work with clients aged 16 years and over.
I can help with anxiety, depression and low self esteem, along with helping you identify unhelpful thinking or behavioural patterns and enable you to make appropriate changes.
By working through these issues I can help you develop resiliance, personal growth and the ability to bring about change.
It can be very difficult to open up about things that have been troubling you or you have kept private for along time, or when you are feeling low and vulnerable.
I will do everything to make you feel safe and find a positive way forward.
I have diplomas in person centred counselling, C.B.T. and psychology.
My first session
In the first session there is a chance for us to meet and get a feel for how I work.
We can talk about issues affecting you, what you would like to get from counselling, and you can ask me some questions.
We can then decide whether we can work together. You can also think about whether you would like to continue, you don't have to decide there and then.
