When something is hurting
You know that something is wrong because you are hurting inside.Together we can work with current situations and past events that are affecting your happiness and wellbeing. Perhaps presenting as depression, anger, anxiety, stress and panic. We can also address emotional effects of neurodiversity including dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and autism. Counselling is in Harrow / Stanmore and online.
Counselling can help you to reflect upon challenges and decisions and to cope emotionally. There may be changes due to physical or mental illness, divorce, children leaving home, redundancy and retirement. Perhaps you are bereaved and grieving, or experiencing tensions in relationships. Recently the Coronavirus has affected many of us in various ways. Counselling in Harrow and online can also help with trauma, abuse and bullying issues.
Whilst working with issues that are important to you it is very likely that you will develop deeper understandings of yourself, your relationships and your interactions with others. This tends to be a natural and rewarding process. You may choose to look at how you identify yourself, including beliefs, ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and to explore social, psychological and spiritual areas. Counselling in Harrow covers Bushy, Stanmore, and Pinner.
Supervision helps you to meet the needs of clients and supervisees and to take good care of yourself. We explore your work and attend to personal and professional development. Together we reflect upon any concerns and dilemmas that occur. I supervise experienced therapists and trainees, supporting work in placements, schools, organisations and private practice, and helping you to prepare for BACP Accreditation.
