About me and my therapy practice
My name is Christine Bailey, and I am a registered, accredited counsellor with experience of helping people with a wide variety of issues.
We all go through difficult times, and it can be hard to talk things through with friends or family. It often helps to talk to someone who is not personally involved, someone who is skilled at listening without making judgements. Counselling allows you to explore what is happening in a confidential and safe environment, with a trained professional who will focus on you and truly listen without judging or criticising you.
I offer a warm, relational approach to help you make sense of what is going on in your life and decide what you would like to be different, and how to set about making changes, if you choose to do so. Humanistic counselling focuses on self-awareness and personal growth; a counsellor is not there to offer advice, but to listen and to support you as you explore your own issues, to help when you can’t ‘see the wood for the trees’.
I understand that it can be hard to pluck up the courage to seek help, but find that clients usually relax very quickly as they talk about what is going on for them.
Counselling can help you to understand how what has happened in the past has influenced what happens in the present, and how to make changes to ensure that the future will be different. So whether you are having problems in your relationships, in the workplace, have experienced a traumatic event, or simply feel that life cannot go on in this way – come and talk it through, you will be pleased you did!
