Hello, my name is Pamela and during this difficult time with COVID-19 affecting us all, I am currently offering counselling sessions via FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp or any video calling software as well as over the phone. I will aim to arrange an initial session with you within 24 hours of your initial contact.
I am passionate about helping people feel better. If you are feeling sad, distressed, anxious or confused and want to change how you see everything right now, I can offer you a safe, confidential environment to talk a bout you and your feelings. I will support you through your difficulties, help you achieve clarity and take those first steps forward towards making changes you choose to make and discover the life that you want.
At some time in our lives we all experience difficulties and feel that we are struggling to cope or feel stuck and are unable to move forward.Not everyone who seeks counselling has a specific problem or area of critical concern, sometimes we can't put our finger on what is troubling us, but things just don't feel right. It takes great courage to take the first step and talk to someone about things. I might just be able to help you make sense of the confusion.
Although well meaning, sometimes friends and family are unable to help, either because they are too close or because they may judge you or offer advice.
By exploring your situation, by listening to your problems and by encouraging you to discover the answers without judging your actions or your decisions,I can help you take the first steps to discovering a happier more fulfilled you.
My approach is as individual as you are and some benefit by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). By working together in this way I aim to help you change your mind set to a more positive and helpful way of thinking and an improved sense of well- being to enable you to achieve your potential and your goals.
My private practice is based in Waddington, approximately 5 miles from Lincoln. I can offer you a warm and friendly welcome and an atmosphere in which you can talk about your problems without being judged. I have helped people over the past 10 years suffering with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, low self esteem, childhood and child related issues, bereavement, obsessive compulsive disorders, work related problems, anger management difficulties and stress.
Sessions last for 60 minutes and after our first meeting you can reflect and decide if you would like to continue to work together. The duration and frequency of the sessions is entirely up to you. Some clients benefit from a couple of sessions and some find longer term counselling helpful. You of course are free to end counselling at any time you wish.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within its ethical framework.
