‘There must be better songs to sing than this…’ Educating Rita (1983)
Hi, my name is Diane Slawinski. I work with people who are feeling fed up with their lives at the moment, and they want something to be different.
Maybe they are struggling to make sense of their feelings around a particular relationship?
Or perhaps they feel that they are so busy meeting the needs of others that they can’t be themselves?
At the school gate, at work, and at home, they might feel like they are working hard to fit in with others rather than really belonging?
If this feels familiar, maybe I can help? Together we can explore your thoughts and feelings to help you to come to a greater understanding of yourself. It’s often not just about finding out who you are that can be helpful, but also finding out who you aren’t.
When people work with me, they become aware of their own wellbeing and they recognise that they are important too. Sometimes it is easy to get lost in the needs of others and it can be hard to say no. Counselling can help you to build self-compassion and confidence and as a result of this make decisions that are right for you. People have often said to me that when they start counselling and become more aware of themselves, their relationships with others also improve.
I can understand that reaching out can feel scary. I have been in counselling too. Because of my own experience, I understand how important it is to treat clients with kindness and respect. If you would like to chat about how I might be able to help please email me for an initial consultation
I offer face to face counselling sessions from comfortable counselling rooms in Edgerton, Huddersfield. The rooms have car parking and they are on a bus route from Huddersfield.
I also offer remote counselling using Zoom or over the telephone. Whichever method that you choose, the sessions can help you to make sense of what you are feeling right now and to explore a different future.
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.
