It can be really tough, holding up your hand and admitting that life isn’t good at the moment. It’s OK not to be OK right now but it doesn’t have to be like this.
If you are fed up of feeling the way that you do, not recognising the person in the mirror, tired of being scared, lost, overwhelmed, angry or feeling left behind. I can help. You are not alone.
I’m Sarah, a counsellor, based in Chorley, in the heart of Lancashire, I can help you work through this tough time in your life. Here’s a little about me, along with a bit about my experience, qualifications and registrations
My approach is influenced by you and I will be flexible and adaptable to suit you, ensuring that you get what you need from our time together. We will go at your pace.
I have experienced counselling myself and I understand that taking that initial step can be scary or even embarrassing. Despite the positive impact counselling had for me, I am only too aware of how I felt in those days and weeks before plucking up the courage to pick up the phone and reach out for help.
You are welcome to arrange an initial meeting with me to see if I am the right counsellor for you. Get in touch today to take the first step.
