Counselling is an effective way of dealing with personal problems as well as maintaining personal well-being. These could include family or relationship issues, bereavement or loss, sexual difficulties, or stress at home or at work.
Personal counselling gives you a chance to explore your issues confidentially, starting from where you are in your life.
A skilled counsellor can help clarify the paths you are choosing, the conflicts that are holding you back and the strengths you can develop and build on to make things better.
What is Counselling?
Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows you to talk about your problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment. A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes). They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you have.
Need Help with Anxiety?
I can share with you techniques for overcoming your anxiety, and obtaining stress relief.
Symptoms of anxiety and stress can be frustrating and debilitating, counselling can show you the steps you can take to regain control.
Counselling can help you to prevent and deal with symptoms effectively and stop them ruining your life.
Panic Attack Management?
Do you suffer from frequent panic attacks that are not connected to specific situations?
Does the fear of having another panic attack interfere with your day to day functioning?
There is evidence that Counselling is successful in helping people to effectively manage their panic attacks and overcome panic disorder.
Help through the fog of depression?
Depression can affect you in different ways, causing a wide variety of symptoms that may include.
• A low mood that lasts a fortnight or longer.
• Not being able to sleep or sleeping more than usual.
• Feeling no enjoyment in life.
• Feeling hopeless.
• Not being able to concentrate on everyday things like reading the paper or watching television.
• Lacking energy or feeling tired.
• Loss of appetite or comfort eating.
• thoughts about harming yourself or suicidal thoughts.
Counselling can help to escape the cycle of depression, break free of negative thoughts, and assist you in changing unhelpful behaviours.
Learning to carry on?
The death of someone you are close to is a difficult event in your life. The experience can leave you reeling with overwhelming emotions, possibly including guilt and anger. I can help you to explore your feelings in an understanding, non-judgemental environment.
My name is Lianne Bole and I am a qualified counsellor. I have a BACP accredited Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology. In previous jobs and volunteer roles I have always been involved in serving others, I would say I am a people person.
I believe that there are reasons why people behave and feel the way that they do. My aim as a counsellor is to help you to work through any difficulties that you may be facing so that you can move forward. My hope is that this will help you to feel liberated from stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, past hurts, or whatever else you feel is holding you back.
I have experience in many areas of counselling including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, work related issues, health problems, bereavement, stress, suicidal thoughts, abuse, and family issues.
What to expect
If you haven't had counselling before (or if you have and it wasn't a good experience) contacting a counsellor may feel unnerving. Hopefully I can lessen any unsettling feelings you have about contacting me by letting you know what to expect.
The counselling I provide is face to face.
However, we'll talk on the phone first about what you think you'd like to get out of counselling. That conversation will hopefully relieve any concerns you may have as well as giving us the opportunity to get a feel for how we would work together.
After that initial chat, if you would like to book your first face to face counselling session we can go ahead and do that. There is no obligation to book a session after that initial conversation.
The most important thing in counselling therapy is your relationship with the counsellor you choose to work with. It is vital that you feel as comfortable as possible in the circumstances to be able to talk to your counsellor.
The room I work from has a comfortable, relaxed feel and is on the ground floor. There are toilet facilities available. Each session lasts an hour.
In our first session we will complete some brief paperwork. This covers things like how we will work together and how to cancel appointments if you are unwell.
At the end of the session we can book the next session, if you would like to.
There isn't a limit to the amount of sessions you can have. However if you would like to limit your number of sessions, to 6 or 8 for example, then please let me know as we will work in a slightly different way.
For a free initial telephone consultation or further information please contact me.
• Initial telephone consultation: Free
• Counselling per session £40
• I have a few concessionary appointment slots available during the day for people on low incomes and students.
Payments can be made by bank transfer, cheque, cash or PayPal.
Counselling can help improve your way of life, work, emotional well-being, relationships and self-confidence.
Counselling is particularly helpful in times of crisis, when you don't know where to turn, who to talk to, or where to start.
