About counselling

Sometimes needs a little help

The first question that can come up is what counselling means and who can benefit from counselling services. Counselling is a form of talking therapy and this includes a trained and qualified therapist (counsellor) to listen to you and explore ways to work on your issues. Issues can involve many things including daily hassles, stress, low mood or relationship problems alongside depression, anxiety, grief, eating disorder, abuse or trauma. Also, sometimes people face a specific problem or feel stuck. This list is not exhaustive. So anyone and everyone can benefit from counselling at least at some point in their lives. Counselling also provides space to grow and find the best potential in a non-judgemental and empathic way.

"I really enjoy working with Alexandra, and I feel very calm & comfortable from her demeanour. She asks questions that make me reflect and come to realisations that I wouldn't have without her. She has been very helpful, listening, and a great support to me in a period when I really needed a therapist on the sideline." - Ann

"We are just a few weeks in and with my issues I think we have a while to go yet but my initial hesitation has completely gone and I look forward to our sessions. Alexandra is a good fit for me, she is empathetic, kindly but professional, and responds to me in a very timely manner too so I have been able to relax into the process." - Deliah

"Alexandra is a great listener and provides practical advice. I highly recommend her as a therapist" - Bea
