I can help with… stress, anxiety, depression, loss, relationship issues, low self-esteem and childhood sexual abuse. I have a particular interest in working with people who feel a sense of shame as this is often an issue that is difficult to share.
Confidential individual counselling in Huddersfield
Hi, my name is Diane Slawinski, I help people who are experiencing challenging feelings as a result of difficult relationships or trauma.
It was my own experience of counselling that prompted me to train to become a counsellor. Because of this, I understand that reaching out can be difficult and I treat all my clients with respect and kindness. I aim to provide you with a compassionate, safe space, where you can be yourself, and share your concerns without judgement.
I work with individual clients, and I offer compassionate, confidential counselling in a safe environment. During our work together, I can help you to gain a deeper insight into your thoughts and feelings. While this cannot change the past, it can help you to gain a greater understanding of yourself and find new ways to move forwards.
For our safety I am a member of a the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and I adhere to their Ethical framework. This means that you, and your information are treated with respect. In order to provide a professional service I also regularly invest in supervision and training to keep my knowledge and skills up to date.
I offer face to face counselling sessions from Edgerton, Huddersfield. The counselling room is large enough to maintain social distancing, it is well ventilated yet warm, and it is cleaned regularly. I also offer remote counselling using Zoom or over the telephone. Which ever 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.
I have found that 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. Because of this I welcome initial enquires as it gives us the chance to get to know each other. If you have any questions or you would like to arrange an initial appointment, please do not hesitate to contact me.
