During this difficult time, I am currently working for the NHS as a Counsellor. If you have any needs, then please get in touch. Due to the social distancing requirements, I am providing counselling remotely using Skype or Zoom. Please contact me to arrange an appointment.
Sole has been very supportive and helped me clear my mind giving me faith and belief in myself, helping me to understand that I need to change in my life in order to be happy. Sole is very professional and is easy to talk to and helpful listener. Thank you Sole.
Sole is such a warm and welcoming person; she put me at my ease immediately. She helped me to see that I could forgive people and let go of the things that had been dragging me down. Thank you so much, I wish I had taken this step earlier.
In my first meeting with Sole she explained how everything works and clarified the legal situation including insurance – it reassured me that I was dealing with a professional.
Very helpful, got me back to a positive mental state. The counsellor understood my difficulties. Also the counsellor treated me with respect and understanding. I would recommend this counsellor to others who are experiencing difficulties.
When I first met Sole I found I was able to open up to her very quickly because of her personality and her thoughtful approach to my issue. That meant the counselling became affective in my earlier sessions.
Sometimes I will address the immediate problem, although it is important to see what is behind the difficulties. So, together we will explore your behaviour and perhaps not the obvious issues but what is behind them and how did you get there. We will make a plan for your sessions using CBT or a Humanistic Integrative approach whatever is best for you.
It is common that you will lead the session but it does sometimes depend on your issues. In my experience, I have found that I might perhaps need to bring you back and focus on your difficulties. Sometimes it can be very painful to deal with the hurt. It is your choice what you bring to our sessions; however, I want you to get the most benefit from them, so sometimes I might support you in finding the right direction.
I believe my strengths are my honesty with my clients and my empathy with them. Another strength is my passion for helping clients to find a positive outlook in life and be able to explore new things that they previously found difficult.
Part of my training is to take my own personal therapy so I am aware how important is to be ready to make any changes and deal with the pain that has been built up for a very long time.
We are all different and it all depends on you how you feel about talking to, and trusting your counsellor. I am very friendly, caring and honest so hopefully this will help you to work in a warm environment that you feel relaxed in and are able to talk freely.
A year from now you will wish you had started today.
All great changes are preceded by chaos.
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
By changing nothing, nothing changes.
Behind every strong and independent person, there is a child that has leant to recover and never depend on anybody.
