Small Steps Counselling Service
A safe place to share your worries allowing you to make steps towards positive change
There are many reasons why a person might seek counselling. Some people recognize they are not well and have perhaps visited their GP; some people may have well-meaning family and/or friends suggesting counselling whilst other people may just know there’s something not quite right but are not really sure what is wrong.
The reason you find yourself looking for counselling is not the key factor – what is important is to be open and honest during sessions so that as we work, we can grasp what is happening in your life and work together towards building a more positive and rewarding life.
In attending sessions with Colette, she will provide you with someone who will really hear what you are saying; with time and space to explore your reality and with someone who does not doubt what you are saying. Colette will work with you in a compassionate and non-judgmental approach providing you with a safe environment helping you to achieve realistic goals
Some of the more common reasons why you might want to see a Counsellor such as Colette are:
- Communication breakdown
- Relationship breakdown
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 once feel judged by Colette and now feel 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.
