Counselling and relationship therapy in Crookham, Fleet, HampshireSometimes life feels overwhelming. Exhausted, stressed and constantly feeling anxiety leads to panic attacks, depression, and tangled relationships.We feel as if no matter what we do, we are never in the right place at the right time! Sex is a non-starter, or becomes dysfunctional. Addictions, such as alcohol, pornography,psychosexual, shopping ... or chocolate take a hold!
My name is Sally Hastings, B.A.(Couns/Psychotherapy), MBACP (Accred). Dip Psychosexual Therapy (Relate).Cert Couples Counselling (Relate) EMDR skills. PGCE (Adult Ed).Dip. Supervision.
I offer a quiet, confidential space for couples and individuals of all ages, including adolescents and the elderly primarily in the Aldershot, Farnborough, Fleet and Yateley area to take stock of their lives and relationships and work out ways of making changes. Sometimes, if situations can't be changed, the way we think about them can. Other times, we are so stressed we are unable to see what choices we have. It is surprising how often we don't realise what an impact bereavement and loss is having on our lives. Few people are aware of how strongly voices and memories from their past effect their actions and beliefs in the present. Sometimes, it is so good to come and talk to someone who won't judge us, tell us what to do, or tittle tattle.
An experienced therapist, with many years working with Relate, as a relationship and psychosexual therapist I believe I can help clients work with these issues.I also work with general life concerns. Each life stage, from youth to parenthood,and later life brings its problems. Bereavement, loss and death are inevitable parts of life, so is ageing, but at times we need help facing them. I work in a hospice and can walk beside people struggling with grief and end of life concerns.
Sometimes, the brain does not process a particular memory or trauma and flashbacks /panic attacks occur. EMDR is widely accepted by the NHS, Social Services , and the Armed Forces as an effective way of helping with this. I have practitioner skills in this field.
I taught counselling to diploma level at a local Technical College and am a qualified Counselling Supervisor.
I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
