Why counselling?

There are many reasons why people choose to see a counsellor including.

⦁ Mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety.

⦁ Physical health conditions such as infertility, short- or long-term illnesses, terminal diagnoses.

⦁ Difficult life events such as loss, bereavement.

⦁ Difficult emotional experiences such as stress, feeling stuck, a change of role, unresolved emotional issues, or relationships difficulties.

⦁ Wanting to change unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and patterns of behaviour.

⦁ Personal growth and development in wanting a deeper understanding of ourselves.

How can counselling help?

Counselling is a talking therapy where we can work together to:

⦁ explore how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviour affect you and your relationships with others.

⦁ support you develop a better understanding of yourself and develop your solutions to problems.

⦁ help you process and work through traumatic past experiences such as infertility, pregnancy loss, birth, bereavement, illness, disability and life transitions.

⦁ support you through periods of anxiety, stress, depression, panic attack, sadness, loneliness, low mood or self-worth.

⦁ reduce conflict within your family unit to create a better functioning home environment.

Client Reviews


I feel I have grown exponentially working with Shelley. She has helped me come out of my shell and challenges me in the best way possible, to ensure I reach my potential. Shelley thinks outside the box and helps me problem solve new ideas and solutions. She is truly inspiring.

Shelley, you've listened to me with a kind ear and not judged me when you could have, which I'll always be thankful for.

Shelley has helped me navigate and understand complex emotions which I have struggled with for many years and have been crippling. Shelley has also helped me identify my own patterns of behaviour that are unhelpful and with her help I am beginning to learn how to show myself compassion and look forward to leaving the past behind me. Her support has been invaluable and I am beginning to feel I have a brighter future ahead.



Shelley's consistency as a good human always made sessions very productive and feel like a super safe place.

Shelley speaks to me as a person and not a patient.

She has such a kind and empathetic manner.

Shelley has a positive, calming manner that instantly puts me at ease.

She helps me think and work rationally and realistically through my thoughts and concerns.

No judgement.
