Confidential individual counselling in Huddersfield
‘There must be better songs to sing than this…’ Educating Rita (1983)
Hi, My name is Diane, and I am a Person-centred Counsellor. I am able to offer warm, compassionate counselling from Huddersfield or Meltham, as well as remote sessions on zoom or over the phone.
While I work with people with a wide range of issues, I specialise in working with people who have issues from their past that continue to make life difficult today.
These past issues could have arisen from a number of things, some people may have experienced trauma and abuse in childhood. Others may be struggling to process relationships that they found difficult. Previous bereavement and loss can be another area that clients sometimes wish to look at. Sometimes though, it can be hard to put the issues that you want to talk about into words, this isn’t unusual, and if it helps, we can discuss this at an initial consultation.
When we have unresolved issues from the past, they can affect how we think, feel and act in the present. For example, we might become emotionally triggered and feel overwhelmed sometimes, or we might try to avoid certain situations as they can feel too uncomfortable.
If this feels familiar, I can help. As your counsellor, I can offer you an emotionally safe space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings without any judgement. Often it can feel really important to have the opportunity to share your narrative and feel truly heard. As we work together, counselling can help you to make sense of what happened in the past and find new ways to live your life now.
As a previous counselling client myself, I can understand just how difficult it can be to make that first move and start the counselling process. Because of this, I offer a free initial consultation that lasts up to 30 minutes. This gives us the chance to get to know each other a little more and you can also ask any questions that you might have. There is no obligation for us to work together after this appointment, and everything that you say will be treated with respect.
I offer a compassionate and non-judgemental approach to counselling. My aim is to offer you a safe space, where you can explore your feelings and emotions, and find different way of moving forwards.
It can be difficult to choose a counsellor. However, choosing a qualified, insured counsellor who is a member of a professional organisation gives you assurance that they are working to meet the standards that you would expect.
The relationship between the client and the counsellor is really important. Sometimes it can help to have that initial chat just to see if we get along. Please contact me to find out how I can help.
