GOSIA MIERNIK Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling

The reason why people seek counselling is usually for a very specific reason such as illness, bereavement, divorce or problems related to work, sex, alcohol or drug use.
However, it does not have to be a major life event.
All of us have experienced difficulties at some point in our lives.
All of us have felt anxious, distressed, overwhelmed by events which had an impact on our self-esteem, our ability to create a meaningful relationship or create the life we would like to live.
Often, it might feel too much... we might feel burdened and we are stuck...we are confused...not able to make any decision...we feel lonely and lost. That's when counselling might be a way forward.
For me, counselling is a process, a collaboration between you and me. I am not a fixer, therefore, I will not fix your problems or tell you what to do. I will not give you advice on what is best for you or how to live your life.
We will work together; we might explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviours to help you get insight and a better understanding of yourself and your needs.
Knowing yourself and getting clarity about your situation can provide the foundation for change.
I can provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space to talk about things that are troubling and concerning you.
I work with a broad range of issues and I offer both short and long term counselling work.
