My wish is to help you become the person you want to be

I´m here, let´s talk

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.

Therapeutic Counselling

Is the collective name for the different ways in which counsellors use communicative techniques to help clients to solve other problems of a personal nature.

Humanistic Approach

Is based on the theory that humans are good and have the power to make their own decisions.

Working with Children and Adolescent

Counselling can help children and adolescents learn how to identify causes of their distress, develop their skills in asking for help and expressing emotions, and improve their problem-solving abilities.

Gestalt Therapy 

Gives attention to how we place meaning and make sense of our world and our experiences. Within Gestalt therapy, the client has space to safely explore their experiences without fear of judgment.

Life Coach

Which help you identify obstacles, set goals, change your perspective, and identify and change your core beliefs. Cognitive behavioural therapists in particular tend to integrate such tools.

How can counselling help me?

Whatever the issue, whatever the problem, you are not alone.  Many, many people are unhappy with certain aspects of their life.  By making the decision to have counselling you are taking matters into your own hands and taking the first step towards a new future.


Sometimes I will address the immediate problem, although it is important to see what is behind the difficulties. So, together we will explore your behaviour and perhaps not the obvious issues but what is behind them and how did you get there. We will make a plan for your sessions using CBT or a Humanistic Integrative approach whatever is best for you.

It is common that you will lead the session but it does sometimes depend on your issues. In my experience, I have found that I might perhaps need to bring you back and focus on your difficulties. Sometimes it can be very painful to deal with the hurt. It is your choice what you bring to our sessions; however, I want you to get the most benefit from them, so sometimes I might support you in finding the right direction.

I believe my strengths are my honesty with my clients and my empathy with them. Another strength is my passion for helping clients to find a positive outlook in life and be able to explore new things that they previously found difficult.

Part of my training is to take my own personal therapy so I am aware how important is to be ready to make any changes and deal with the pain that has been built up for a very long time.

We are all different and it all depends on you how you feel about talking to, and trusting your counsellor. I am very friendly, caring and honest so hopefully this will help you to work in a warm environment that you feel relaxed in and are able to talk freely.

Life can be very confusing

By Sole Jewell BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, CBT and Life Coach. We are living in a very confusing time. From a very young age, we have been told how to live, how to think, how to behave and how to talk. The list goes on and is practically endless.

What is depression?

Let´s begin by defining what depression is. Depression is a mood disorder that can affect a person’s daily life and routine. Some might describe it as a feeling of sadness, loss or anger. Depression is a collection of stamps that we accumulate throughout our lives, and we don’t know how we collected so many symbols of sadness, decisions, experience and thoughts about how we didn’t make the right decisions. During my experience working as a counsellor, I…

How to help your stress levels with boundaries

Have you noticed what is going on around you at present? We are finding what is happening around us very stressful, not just what is happening with the pandemic but, most of all, what is happening with each other – at home, outside with friends and with your colleagues at work. Stress is the body’s reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental and…
