However, fulfilling and supportive relationships don't come automatically and can be tested at these times. They require good social skills and a great deal of work, time and energy to stay strong and go the distance. Sometimes our most meaningful connections break down, for whatever reason, leaving us feeling lonely, disappointed and unsure of ourselves.
WELCOME to Shirley Marais Counselling Service
I have experience gained from volunteering and working in private practices. I am registered, qualified and experienced in supporting you through your issues.
Sometimes we can feel a bit broken. We need to regroup and repair from time to time. Do you wish you could feel less needy in your romantic relationship or be more assertive and respectful to yourself. Are you dealing with conflict at work which might be stressful. Perhaps you would like to change your family interactions, forgive or just figure out reasonable boundaries.
Perhaps the way you think about and treat yourself has bought you here. Do you replaying awkward moments over and over wishing things were different. "If only I was...., I would be ok?"
As your counsellor I would love to work with you to help you with whatever it is that is troubling you right now.
I am a qualified Integrative Therapist and offer counselling with a calm and empathic nature, I offer a safe and confidential space to offload and explore the things that matter most to you.
As a counsellor and because I am not a part of your everyday life, you can feel more able to say what you really think and feel about things, without fear of being judged or upsetting someone.
In your therapy sessions we might talk about depression, anxiety, self-esteem, anger, abuse, relationships or bereavement - or something else.
I offer Couples, Individual and Online Counselling where I help build a relationship that can support you as you try to see your problems clearly. As your counsellor I can help you to find a new perspective and to find a way forward to a better future where you have greater control. This will enable you to live your life in a more positive and constructive way.
I provide service in Bedford and Biggleswade for Individual Counselling, Couples Counselling and Online Counselling.
Couples or Relationship Counselling offers you a safe environment to talk through your issues with the support of an experienced therapist.
I offer one to one therapy, where I work in your best interest, learn more about the different issues I can help you with.
