"May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears"

Nelson Mandela

Norwest Counselling- Online sessions available

At times in life we can find ourselves longing for a different outcome. This is certainly one of those times as we collectivey meet the challenges of a global health crisis. More than ever we need support and to be heard. To that end, no matter how the next few months unfold, I will be continuing to do sessions via Zoom, Skype or Facetime. 

Whilst the Coronavirus is front and centre right now, people will still be facing other issues. Maybe we are a struggling in our relationships; or with a difficult life situation. It might even be a struggle we are having within ourselves, robbing us of all that life has to offer. Either way, the picture we want eludes us. We feel stuck.

If this is you it might be time to talk to someone who is outside your situation – someone who is empathetic and who can apply their professional expertise to help you through.

This is where we come in.

I went to Deb as a last resort, desperate for a solution to an ongoing personal issue. I found her to be both compassionate and professional. Within a few sessions we had resolved what I thought would be a problem forever

I am much more aware of my needs and how to ask for emotional support when I need it. My relationship with my husband is stronger and more supportive for me and for him.
