Confidential individual counselling in Huddersfield
‘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?
Maybe they are worried about what’s happening at work?
Sometimes they can have concerns about the well-being of partners, parents or children…
Or, maybe they feel so overwhelmed by meeting everyone else’s needs, that they forget to take care of themselves?
If this feels familiar, maybe I can help? As your counsellor, I can provide you with a confidential, safe space to look at what is going on for you. Together, we can explore your thoughts and feelings. This will help you to understand yourself better, and find new ways to move forward. It’s often not just about finding out who you are, but also it’s about finding out who you’re not.
When people work with me, they have the space to explore their concerns, and they become aware of their own wellbeing 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.
