We all feel worried or low from time to time sometimes, and that’s ok. Lots of people feel sad or worried at times about exams, or their friendships at school or even speaking out loud in front of people.It is also ok to feel sad or worried every now and again it is normal for our emotions to be up and down. If you feel sad or worried on most days and the way you are feeling is starting to affect your day to day life, counselling may be helpful for you.
No relationship is the same so different people will come to sessions with different aims to get out of the sessions. However, people often find that engaging in relationship counselling sessions can help them feel more aware of how to progress within the relationship.
Relationships can be transformed which can improve the quality of life for people who engage in relationship counselling. For some people they may come with a specific issue they want to resolve. In most cases people feel more confident and reassured about the decisions they make during therapy.
Supervision is a vital element of ensuring that therapists are practicing in the safest and most ethical way with their client. Supervision can help the therapist to explore their case work as well as acknowledge their own well being within the therapy that they are providing to others. In order to adhere to the required number of hours as set out in the B.A.C.P ethical framework practitioners must engage with 1.5 hours of supervision on a monthly basis.

"After separating from my husband I felt so low and anxious all of the time. My self esteem and confidence were at an all time low and I couldn't even face going to work.

"I was dubious about starting counselling I didn't really expect it to work. However after working with Natasha I was able to make the changes that i needed to make in my life" Natasha is professional, caring and very skilled at what she does. I am so pleased I started counselling"
"Me and my husbands marriage was in a really bad place when we came to start therapy with Natasha.
Natasha was so patient and understanding and she really listened to both of our views.
