Welcome to Start of the Beginning Counselling.

Here you can take your first steps, to emotional wellbeing, and improving the rest of your life.

We can struggle with day to day things, we often feel alone, and isolated. Having someone to talk to in a safe non-judgemental space can help. I know that taking the first step is always the hardest, picking up the phone, or sending the email to enquire can be terrifying.  Know that you are not alone feeling like this. As a result of working together therapeutically you can move forward, feeling more positive. Exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours gives you greater insight and understanding. This therefore also improves your life as a whole.

Building your confidence, and self-esteem, and also understanding anxieties, and moods. Most of all understanding the impact they have on you

Identifying why you feel and think the way you do encourages change. Learning how to use techniques that reduce anxiety and depression can have a positive impact. Together setting realistic achievable goals, which seems obvious, but we put pressure on ourselves to do more, to do better. As a result we feel stressed and may focus on what we have not done, instead of what we have achieved. We can list our perceived failures whilst ignoring everything we accomplish or overcome. Yet for some reason we seem to do this to ourselves.

In conclusion exploring your thoughts, feelings and experiences, leads to increasing your awareness and understanding of self. Learning to trust yourself is key.

I believe you are the expert on yourself, even if you don’t know it yet.

Give me a call on 07768124076 to arrange a free initial consultation.

I look forward to meeting you.
