Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are uncomfortable or causing you pain.  It can provide a safe space and regular time for you to talk and explore difficult feelings and choices, with someone who is unconnected to your situation.


As your counsellor I am here to support you and to respect your views.  I aim to help you to find your own insight and understanding of your problems and do not usually give advice.


Counselling can help you to:

·    deal with feelings of depression or sadness, and look at have a more positive outlook on life

·    cope with a relationship breakdown or bereavement

·    deal with redundancy or work-related stress

·    look at issues that are preventing you from achieving your ambitions

·    understand yourself and your problems better

·    feel more confident

·    develop a better understanding of other people's points of view

·    make different choices.


Counselling can often involve talking about difficult or painful feelings and often is not easy.  In most cases, it takes a number of sessions before the counselling starts to make a difference, and a regular commitment is needed to make the best use of the therapy.  For most people counselling is a positive experience which enables them to gain greater self-awareness and encourages living a more satisfying life.

I invite you to contact me to arrange an appointment and look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes 
Valerie Harrison
