Counsellor and Therapist - Near Welwyn Garden City and Knebworth

Life today can be very demanding, evoking high levels of stress, anxiety and depression which we can struggle to cope with. This not only impacts how we feel about ourselves, but also our relationships in both our personal and professional lives. We all need extra support from time to time, to help us deal with the challenges that life can sometimes throw at us. We can feel so overwhelmed with everything it is hard to make sense of what is going on for us, leaving us feeling vulnerable and confused. Not wanting to burden family and friends with our problems, can also make us feel very lonely, just adding to our distress.

So sometimes, we need to invest time in ourselves to explore what is happening in our lives and make sense of it. Counselling is traditionally know as the 'talking cure' and, as a talking therapist, I aim to support my clients throughout their explorations. Therapy provides you with the opportunity to talk with a trained professional, so that you can begin to rebuild your resilience to deal with life's challenges. Counselling gives us the opportunity to begin to understand ourselves better and our new awareness can increase our confidence, making us better equipped to make the right choices for us and our futures.

"Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them" - Buddha

My name is Gina and I am a counsellor based near Welwyn Garden City and in Stevenage. I provide you with emotional support when you need it the most. Talking therapy gives you the space, support and most importantly, time for yourself. You may have a specific problem that is emotionally challenging and distressing, such as bereavement or job loss, or you may be struggling with a more specific issue such as an eating disorder or a pattern of destructive relationships. However, you may also just feel unfulfilled and want to gain some self awareness to enhance your life and relationships. If any of this is you, I can offer you a regular commitment of weekly one to one counselling. I work with adults, on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to live your life more fully.

The initial step can feel daunting. You may be feeling confused and anxious and the thought of reaching out for help may seem overwhelming. As a therapist, I am committed to providing counselling in a relaxed, safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I am a fully insured counsellor and a practising registered member of the BACP, British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

My counselling rooms are based in the pretty village of Welwyn, which is just off J6 of the A1(M) and Old Town Stevenage, again just of J8 of the A1(M), but also just a 10 minute walk from the train station. Both Welwyn and Stevenage are within easy reach of Hertfordshire's surrounding towns and villages such as Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, Hertford, Knebworth, Tewin and Wheathampsted.

So, if you are feeling in need of some much needed emotional support, I look forward to hearing from you, in order that I may start to provide that for you.
