About Turning Point Counselling

Counselling can be a turning point in your life

As you share your story with me and help me understand what is going on in your life this can in turn help you to see more clearly what is actually happening. With this new clarity you can then decide what changes you would like to make. I will help you find your path. When you become aware of what the situation is and you can focus on the issues then change is possible.

A warm, safe and comfortable place

I will provide a warm safe and comfortable environment in which to tell your story. I will listen with empathy and be non judgemental and I will be as honest with you as I can be.

If you prefer to talk in the open air we can walk together around my field in total seclusion.  I can now offer counselling therapy online or over the telephone if you prefer.

Thoughts, body, feelings and soul

I believe we are made up of our thoughts, body, feelings and soul. When we have a disconnection between these parts of ourselves this can lead to ill health. Unexplained pains in our body can be due to anxiety. If we avoid painful thoughts and don't allow them to be expressed we can bury them within ourselves and this can cause distress to the body.

Disconnection can lead to feelings of isolation.

I have become aware that sometimes people have become disconnected from different parts of themselves, the environment and other people. This can lead to feelings of lonliness, fear, isolation and become unable to identify and express how they feel.
