Professional Counselling Sometimes in life we may need help through our difficulties. I am here to listen with empathy, kindness and acceptance, and to help you receive healing. I offer counselling which is from the Christian perspective, but you don’t have to be a Christian to come and see me. I counsel women 18 years and over and counselling is confidential. My fee is £40 per session. A concessionary rate is available. Areas covered include Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme and surrounding areas. I have 12 years experience as a counsellor and have a Diploma in Counselling (Keele University). I have extensive experience in the following areas: Anxiety Depression Low self-worth Self-harm Suicidal thoughts Loss and grief Testimonials “I sought Mary’s professional help when I was suffering with anxiety. I felt lonely at the time that no one understood how I was feeling. Mary was kind, compassionate and patient. She helped me to understand why I was feeling the way I was, and helped me gain useful skills to help me deal with anxiety. I highly recommend Mary as a counsellor.” Christine “Mary is a very good listener. She has such empathy and really helped me understand my thoughts. She provided me with the tools to help me manage my feelings.” Jane “I have found the experience to be a very positive one where I was made to feel relaxed, comfortable and safe in order to realise my true feelings. Mary’s support and professional guidance with complete confidentiality assured was invaluable.” Isabel “I can highly recommend Mary as a counselling therapist. I began seeing Mary for counselling therapy when I was going through a relationship breakdown and found the sessions to be both supportive and beneficial. It helped me process all that I was going through and take positive steps forward.” Kim “Mary is a wonderful counsellor. God has given her great wisdom and insight. She is thoroughly equipped to practice helpful, non judgemental godly counsel joining the good parts of counselling theory with a thorough knowledge of God’s Word. She has been greatly used to help heal and restore many broken lives. I know many women who have been transformed by God through her ministry.” Simon, Counselling Supervisor Contact details Contact details: 0798 696 2502 firstname.lastname@example.org There is a dog on the premises who is friendly and gentle.
