NEW 2018 :  Just Being Human Counselling was asked to Support a Coventry Born Singer Sandra Godley to build her Choir.  The Choir was made up from people who had suffered either Physical or Mental Health Issues.  The Choir named Choir-Ability will perform their song on the BBC One Show as part of the celebrations for this year's Royal Wedding of Prince Henry of Wales (Harry) and Meghan Markle. Due to Prince Harry's conviction to support people suffering from Mental Health issues through the Charity 'Head Space'.  I was honoured to be asked to be the Independent Counsellor on site providing re-focussing and grounding techniques to enable individuals applying to be in the Choir, get through their audition.  Exceptionally Inspiring event.  

The Choir will sing on the BBC One Show on May 17th 2018 at 7pm.

Counselling Services

Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


Losing who you are

Life can often become extremely busy.  We can loose who we actually are by taking on many roles.  Through Counselling you can reconnect with your authentic self.  By presenting your world with your authentic self you will be able to gain more robust and true connections.  This brings much positivity and more enjoyment to life.
