Hello and welcome to my blog. This is a space on my website I’m aiming to update monthly, so be sure to come back and see what’s new. Also feel free to get in contact if you have any questions or ideas about topics you’d like me to talk about.

As the blog develops I’ll be covering a variety of topics related to wellness and mental health. Though I specialise in loss and bereavement counselling in Chorley, I’m hoping to share insights on aspects of life that you may find useful, whether that’s staying positive, looking for ways to stay active or just ways to stay motivated. To start with though, I’d like to tell you a little about person-centred therapy and how it works.

As a person-centred counsellor, I offer talking therapy, which is all about helping you find your own answers to your problems. I don’t offer you advice or give you solutions but instead, help you to find your own answers through non-judgemental listening.

Sometimes it can be as simple as having someone to talk to about your loss who isn’t a close friend or family member; somebody impartial who you don’t need to feel guilty about offloading onto. We spend so much time with our thoughts and worries swimming around in our heads that saying them out loud can be a powerful and cathartic experience.

It’s likely you’ll feel unburdened too. Bereavement is a complex and difficult thing to work through, but talking about your worries is an important first step on your journey through grief. How often do you hear the phrase ‘get over it?’ Grief isn’t something we ever get over, rather something we learn to live with. Of course, we never want to forget our loved ones, but we want to learn how to live with their loss.
