Wellbeing Counselling Lincoln understands that deciding to have counselling can be daunting.  Acknowledging that you need help is a sign of strength and courage. We all experience difficult periods in life and sometimes we could all benefit from a little extra help.  Feeling nervous is natural so choosing a counsellor you feel comfortable with is essential.

Counselling is time and space set aside for you to explore what is on your mind.  It can help you to clarify your thoughts and feelings and make sense of them.  A safe, confidential place where you can be heard without fear of judgement, it can help with a wide range of issues including abuse, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, low self esteem and stress.

Aimed at supporting emotional needs and promoting emotional wellbeing, counselling can help improve the quality of your life


Counselling Approach

Sharon Ratcliff’s counselling approach is integrative yet based upon the person centred principles which, she believes, can be one of the most effective forms of therapy.  Integrative counselling takes into account the uniqueness of each individual and draws upon different approaches to therapy.  Since no two people have travelled the same path therapy is tailored to suit your individual needs and concerns.

Sometimes we have a vague sense that something isn’t quite right and needs to change.  Counselling may help you make sense of the confusion.  You do not need to be in crisis, in fact counselling can be part of a wellness plan that helps prevent crisis and could improve the quality of your life.

One of the most powerful actions you can take is to understand the role of your thinking and how it can affect your mood. Learning to recognise negative thoughts means we can learn to dispute them and give ourselves a better chance of avoiding depression and anxiety.


The Client-Counsellor Relationship

The relationship between counsellor and client should be one of equals, trusting in the client as the expert on themselves.  You know yourself best and are capable of finding your own answers.  Sharon’s role is to support you through this journey, providing a confidential, safe place where you can explore what is on your mind.  You can be empowered to find your own way forward and discover better ways of coping.

“With the focus on health and feeling better it was reassuring my feelings were validated and acknowledged before ways to start healing were explored. Thank you.”
