Gaia Counselling

 

About Me

My name is Colette Corr, and I am an Integrative Therapist. This means I use various evidence based therapeutic techniques to meet individual requirements when supporting clients to overcome their difficulties.

My focus on the therapeutic relationship creates an accepting and understanding space, helping clients to gain insight into what may be causing distress or getting in the way of life. This enables an understanding and acceptance of their situation to make positive changes in their life.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their professional ethics and codes of conduct.

Why Counselling

People seek counselling for a variety of reasons ranging from difficulties with ‘minor niggles’ to profound distress impacting all areas of life. These include:

  • distressing or stressful experiences such as bereavement, separation, major life transitions, experiences from the past including in childhood.

  • specific psychological or behavioural traits which they would like to change, such as compulsive thoughts or difficulties relating to people.

  • feelings of depression or anxiety.

  • exploring a sense that their lives are not quite right.

  • discovering coping strategies.

  • personal development in a safe and supportive environment.
