Counselling is often about supporting clients to improve the relationship that they have with themselves, and/or their relationships with others and this can sometimes be childhood related. Sometimes it can be about improving self awareness, empowerment and confidence to make different choices for social, mental and emotional health and well-being. At Counselling Coventry I work with a range of difficulties (see counselling page).
Sometimes it can mean experiencing depression and/or anxiety or other common mental health problems.
I offer a friendly, confidential, sensitive professional service to individual adult clients (18+), couples and groups in Coventry and Warwickshire - Counselling Coventry.
"You do not need a referral from a GP to make an appointment to see me. Coming to see Counsellor Coventry does not always have to be about the problems or difficulties you are facing - it can also help enhance your life by talking through your aspirations to promote personal growth and self-development" - Counsellor Coventry.
"I am also available for on line counselling or supervision beyond the shores of the UK (Not USA or Canada), in English, and would welcome any enquiries by email in the first instance" - Counsellor Coventry
What to do next...
For Counselling Coventry or Psychotherapy Coventry, you can either email or phone to book a FREE initial meeting (as described on the locations/fees page) OR an assessment session which is chargeable. On initial contact, please provide a little information on what it is that you wish help with, symptoms that you are currently experiencing and what you wish to achieve from counselling.
At busy times, while your call might not be immediately answered, we will always try to return calls as soon as possible.
Please note that we do not take calls from withheld numbers, canvassers and commercial callers. This line is for clients only.
Counsellor Coventry also offers personal consultancy/coaching where you be offered the time and space to explore and clarify the thoughts in your mind that are resulting in possible confusion with the support of your consultant/coach. Maybe you feel your thoughts contradict one another, and create conflict so that you can’t see ‘the wood for the trees’.
"Bringing together my experience of counselling, psychotherapy, personal and professional development and academic studies in creativity, communication, media and culture, and cultural studies, I offer one-to-one personal consultancy/coaching to help you find a way forward in what really matters in your work or personal life" - Counsellor Coventry.
This type of consultation/coaching may be booked as a one-off meeting, or as a short series of meetings, and is different from short, medium or longer term counselling or psychotherapy.
