Welcome to Footsteps Counselling. Well done for taking the first step to changing you life. The cost of counselling is an investment in your most precious resources - your long term happiness & peace of mind.
I am an accredited Psychotherapist with 13 years experience, passionate about helping my clients overcome stress, anxiety, low mood, addictions, dealing with loss, relationship problems & many other issues. I offer a safe, confidential space to support you through a difficult time in your life. I will be here for you as long as you need me, from 6 weeks to 6 months or longer.
Are you feeling stressed? Anxious? Low mood? Not good enough? Counselling aims to address the cause of the problem, rather than just treating the symptoms. I use a Cognitive Behavioural approach- The way we think profoundly influences the way we feel. Therefore, learning to think differently can enable us to think & act differently. I will work with you to tackle self-defeating thinking & replace it with a problem solving outlook.
I can appreciate how difficult it can be to engage in counselling for the first time or with a new counsellor. I recommend that we arrange an initial session to identify and explore the issues and concerns you may be experiencing, and your hopes for how counselling may help you.My consultation room is in Prospect House, Leeds city centre, 5 minutes walk from the train station, a converted mill with lots of character. The receptionist will give you a warm welcome & there is a comfortable waiting area with newspapers & Sky news on TV.
In the first session I would like to get to know you & identify the symptoms you are experiencing, the emotions & the events that trigger them & the root cause by exploring your core beliefs. This is not a quick fix approach. To achieve personal change requires lifestyle changes& sustained effort & commitment from you.
Are you ready for change? What's holding you back?
