Is it hard to talk to others about what you are experiencing?
Are you looking for help?
Hello, my name is Elizabeth Butler, welcome to this website. As a qualified and accredited counsellor and therapist, I offer a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore what is going on in your life. You can talk about anything that is troubling you, and how it might be affecting your wellbeing and your relationships with others.
Sharing what’s going on in your life in a comfortable and safe environment where your experience is heard and valued, might help you to make sense of your thoughts, feelings and experiences.
Our lives can become complicated, events may have unexpected effects on us, feelings can become overwhelming; being listened to by an impartial and professional counsellor can help to give you a fresh perspective.
are having trouble sleeping, or fear being overwhelmed by stress, depression, anger, sadness or grief, then counselling could help.
Deciding to see a counsellor could be a positive first step
towards addressing whatever is worrying or distressing you.
Perhaps you are suffering from low mood, depression or anxiety?
Or adjusting to a major change in your life, such as divorce, redundancy, illness, or the loss of a loved one?
You might be having problems in a relationship, or experiencing work-related stress.
Sometimes it's difficult to accept something that happened in the past, or we can feel trapped in a cycle of damaging behaviour.
You could be feeling isolated, or adrift, lacking self-esteem or a sense of identity.
Maybe you just feel stuck?
