My name is Helen Muniappa. I am a fully qualified Person-Centred counsellor based in Bramcote Nottingham.
Feeling unhappy and unsatisfied in life is something I can understand, it might feel like you have lost touch with yourself through life events or life's ups and downs, and maybe you were unaware of how this has influenced your way of being.
These issues and many others, can throw us off course in life and we can lose ourselves and need support through difficult times. Or maybe, you might feel you just need someone to talk to about what's going on for you.
Counselling is an opportunity to reconnect with yourself and explore what matters most to you to help understand yourself better.
I can understand what it is like to be thinking about asking for help for the first time and how daunting this may feel.
I will offer you an accepting, understanding, genuine relationship, with a space that is yours. Being fully listened to without judgement can be a rare experience, one that counselling can offer you.
Counselling is your space for you to share what is important for you in your time and at your own pace.
I offer Person-Centred counselling, this is a non-directive approach. I believe you are the expert in your life, and together we will find the answers to your difficulties at your pace and in your own time. I will offer you empathy and be non-judgemental, and help you to explore ways of making sense of your thoughts and feelings in a safe confidential space.
More information about the Person Centred Approach, can be found at www.bapca.org.uk
The first session is usually to take personal details and gain an understanding of what you would like to explore and your expectations from counselling.
In order to work effectively and ethically though, you will appreciate that some ground rules need to be set and observed and I will agree these with you in the form of a Counselling Agreement.
Therefore, I offer an initial first session at a reduced fee of £20, because it is important you feel comfortable with me as your counsellor.
I work with adults (over 18) on a face-to-face basis. Sessions work on a weekly basis, but this can be flexible depending on your needs.
