Hello, my name is Shaun and thank you for visiting my website. I offer an initial telephone consultation free of charge, and offer reduced fees to those on a limited income.
Most of us experience times in our lives when we feel low, worried or anxious. This might be because of specific difficulties such as anxiety, panic attacks or depression, it could also be a general sense of feeling down and simply not understanding why. Talking to a trained therapist offers you the opportunity to explore what concerns you may have in a confidential, non-judgemental setting with someone who explores what life events might have contributed to these feelings.
I practice from two locations, the first is Oadby Grange Farm with plenty of parking, and the 2nd is from Knighton Fields Road East, which is just off the Welford Road, and 1.2 miles from the University of Leicester, 0.7 miles from Clarendon Park and 1.8 miles from the Leicester Royal Infirmary. Both locations are very easy to commute to by car or public transport, and are both very warm and welcoming.
Initially, you might decide to have 6 sessions of counselling to see how you feel, you might decide you wish to continue for longer. In some cases my clients have met with me for up to 2 years however, my work will always be based around what you want to achieve during your treatment.
So whether you wish to book an appointment for one session, or decide to explore your thoughts and feelings further, I hope the following gives you an overview of the issues I'm competent to work with:
Anxiety + panic attacks
Abuse - verbal - employment issues - bullying & stress
Abuse - sexual
Bullying - college/University
Relationships - divorce - separation
Relationships - family - friends
Relationships - work colleagues
Low self- esteem
Continual prioritisation of others 'needs’ over and above your own.
Access for people with disabilities
If climbing stairs is difficult, or you are a wheelchair user, I can meet with you at a different location should you wish.
