4 Years Experience

Hello. Are you feeling overwhelmed, emotionally distressed, anxious or stressed out by relentless pressures in life?

My name is Henriette and I provide confidential mental health and counselling support to adults over 18. I offer Face-to-Face slots in Bridgwater TA6 5BF and TA6 7AS and Online Zoom slots. Visit my diary and choose your preferred communication method (select location).

I am an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor providing person-centred therapy on one-to-one basis. This means we can explore your emotional distress in a flexible way at your own pace from different viewpoints and find ways to manage:

• anger
• anxiety
• burn-out
• depression
• feeling sad due to life changes like menopause, bereavement/grief
• hurt or other worries.
• loss of health, or terminal illness like cancer, loneliness,
• low mood
• low self-confidence
• low self-esteem
• panic disorder
• relaxation
• self-care
• stress
• traumatic experiences

It can be nerve-wracking to open-up emotionally about intimate and private issues that are holding you back in life. Long term emotional suffering from anxiety and stress also affect your physical body. So, well done on taking the first courageous step to take more control over your circumstances.

I am an Accredited Registrant with the National Counselling Society and can provide you with a safe confidential space where you can explore your personal dilemmas. For online counselling work I am registered with the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO).

I support local clients in Bridgwater, Somerset, UK and online clients who travel globally or are ex-pats in various countries. We can work in real time via video/webcam, voice only (like telephone counselling) or instant chat (IM). Or if you prefer a delayed response time I offer email counselling via ProtonMail. Some clients find it helpful to switch between the different mediums whereas others prefer to stick to their preferred way of communication. The way of communication is your choice where you feel safest to:

• explore and make sense of curious, sad, anger-provoking, embarrassing, shameful or traumatic experiences;
• learn how automatic negative thoughts cause negative feelings and unhelpful behaviours including how to change these thoughts to experience more positive emotions and helpful behaviours;
• learn coping strategies or relaxation techniques to improve your mental well-being, manage anger or manage anxiety and stress;
• understand how you relate to yourself and others. This might explain distress or conflict situations with loved ones, friends or colleagues.

I am here to support you. Either indirectly, if you need to talk at your own pace or come to terms with your life experiences.

Alternatively, a more directive approach using psychoeducation and cognitive behavioural therapy (cbt) tools might be more appropriate if you want to change an unhelpful behaviour or learn to cope with anxiety and stress. Such approach may involve keeping journals, diary notes or working on goals between sessions.

Your problem is never too small and I shall always give you my full non-judgmental attention.

I look forward to hearing from you and until then, treat yourself how you would treat a good friend.
