Small Steps Counselling Service taking steps towards positive change
Did you know that 1 in 4 people will experience an emotional wellbeing illness in their lifetime, and that over 600 million people suffer from anxiety and/or depression?
Sometimes, when we are struggling with life’s challenges, we can feel isolated and lonely, not knowing where to turn or who can help. At times like this, what we need is someone who will hear our worries in a safe and non-judgmental environment – and give us tools to help us cope with the challenges in a safe place.
Small Steps Counselling Service will help you take hold of those feelings of fear and anxiety so they will no longer be able to control you – you will be in control of them. I will work with you to tackle those overwhelming feelings of self-doubt and insecurity, ensuring you’ll find peace of mind in a world of chaos.
“I didn’t think I needed a counsellor and only went because my wife insisted. However, during our sessions, I began to see things differently and my own self-confidence increased and my stress reduced. I thought there would be shame in needing to see a counsellor but I have learnt there is no shame in it, sometimes we just need someone who doesn’t know us who will listen!”
“We went to see Colette due to some problems in our marriage. We had a combination of sessions together and individual sessions, we only needed 6 sessions in the end. Colette taught us how to communicate more effectively with each other and to trust to each other.”
“Colette was recommended to me by a friend, I went to see her because I was suffering with high anxiety levels. I cried a lot in our sessions but we also laughed a lot, I didn’t feel judged by Colette. I’m now more confident and positive about life. I am now working full time – something I thought would never happen. My anxiety no longer controls me – I control it.”
“I went to see Colette because I was suffering from depression and was feeling suicidal. I was often tearful during sessions with Colette but felt I could talk openly about my depression and over a period of time, began to reframe my thoughts to become more positive. I still feel low from time to time but feel I now have the tools to manage this better.”
