Person Centred Counselling
Providing Counselling in Lincoln and Surrounding Areas
Lincoln Counselling; Person Centred Counselling is a ‘talking therapy’ and is a chance to explore the 'here and now'. It is an opportunity for you to explore troubles, hurts or other issues with a trained professional in a safe and secure environment. The counsellor/therapist is trained to listen with empathy, seeing the world from your perspective. Counsellors do not usually give advice but instead help you find your own solutions. Counselling can be short term or on a longer term basis.
Work stress can cause physical, emotional, and behavioural problems which can affect your health, energy, well-being, mental alertness, and personal and professional relationships.
No relationship is without its stress. But it's about recognising the source of the stress, communicating about it, then taking the next steps to ease that stress as much as possible.
Who is counselling for?

How does counselling end?
Counselling can be ended at any time that either you or the counsellor feels is appropriate. However, there may be times during the counselling process where you feel you may be too emotionally distressed or challenged to continue. At these points it can be tempting to stop counselling abruptly. If this happens, I would like to encourage you to talk to me first as it may be that there are underlying issues that need to be addressed.
My role is to create a safe, warm and non-judgemental environment in which you can explore your issues and discover who you are: to meet you wherever you are on your personal journey.
Some people have all that they need to “do life” and face their difficulties on their own. Many others need some empathetic support along the way. My belief is that everyone is valuable and has the right to feel that way. I also believe that everybody needs help sometimes and sometimes it is helpful for that help and support to come from outside their immediate situation. It is a real privilege to have had the opportunity to do this work.
