Counselling and Therapy for Couples and Individuals
Therapeutic Counselling for anyone aged over 16.
Relate qualified Counsellor based in Wakefield and online and telephone.
Tip of the Week - paying attention
Show your partner/boss/friend/child that you respect them enough to stop what you are doing, put down your phone, look away from the television, look at the message in their eyes and really listen to what they have to say. If you can't do this because the baby is wriggling in your arms or the dinner is burning, schedule using affirmative language: 'I really want to listen properly, I'm interested in what you have to say. I can't stop mid nappy change, can I catch up with you in a few minutes?' Then make sure you keep that appointment in a few minutes.
Reduced fees continue for online sessions during lockdown/furlough
I am an experienced Counsellor working with Couples and Individuals and Families. I have twenty years experience as a counsellor and ten years experience as a couples counsellor.
