Hello, I'm Hilary and this is my counselling room. This is where we can work together to help you move forward in your life and begin to feel more yourself again.
I am passionate about helping people work towards feeling more positive about themselves. I have helped clients with a wide diversity of issues including, but not exclusively; relationship difficulties (with partners and parents), feelings of depression, anxiety, emptiness and loss as well as difficulties such as self-worth and self-esteem.
It is my belief that psychological distress occurs when a person looses sight of themselves. This can result in anxiety and lead to feelings of worthlessness, lack of direction and hope. Changing yourself on the inside can change the way you see yourself and the world, leading to greater self understanding and a more positive life.
I am a fully qualified, person centred, integrative counsellor, working in Cheltenham. I have 5 years of recent, up to date training behind me and 5 years of client work experience. I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and I keep up to date with the latest training, attending continuous professional development throughout the year.
I offer a peaceful, non-judgmental and confidential space where you can talk and feel heard. Each counselling session is an hour long and regular weekly sessions are recommended as therapy works better that way. Each session is £45.
Considering therapy can be scary but it doesn't have to feel like that. In our work together we can go at your own pace and build a safe, confidential and trusting relationship where you can share things you may never have spoken about before. In this way it is possible to start to feel more in touch with yourself and work towards hope.
Picking up the phone to speak to a counsellor can be difficult but I'm here to help you so you don't have to work things out alone. Nurture your emotional health; you have already started your journey by reading this today.
