Counselling Cumbria - Milnthorpe

Hello. To decide to begin counselling is to take a very courageous step. Choosing a counsellor who you feel you can relate to can seem like a big decision to have to make. And it is important, as our relationship is central to the work we will do together. Our first meeting will give you the time and space to decide.


My training is person-centred, the basis for which is to offer genuine warmth and acceptance in our relationship. As your counsellor, I will listen to you in confidence without judging in any way. 


Being understood and accepted in a non-judgemental way develops your trust in our relationship. It feels safer then for you to express your thoughts and feelings and so to begin to clarify your situation, to gain insight and to heal emotionally.


Soon you will be aware of how much power already resides within you and, during counselling, you will be encouraged to trust in this intuitive ability to know what is best for you.


There is no agenda except your own, so you need have no fear about being coerced into anything for which you are not yet ready.


I welcome clients from all over Cumbria, Milnthorpe, Kendal, Grange-Over-Sands, Burton-in-Kendal, Kirkby Lonsdale, Sedbergh and surrounding areas.
