Fiona Kennedy Wellbeing Counsellor How can counselling help you? Life brings many challenges, and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. As a counsellor my role is to provide space and guidance to help you on your journey of self-discovery; to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it. I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with someone from outside your day-to-day life. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives - and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn’t about giving you solutions or advice but empowering you to make your own changes. My approach to counselling is a person-centred one. This is a non-judgmental way of working, where I create the right conditions to help you increase your self-awareness and personal wellbeing to move towards and reach your fullest potential.
