Counsellor - Counselling in Northampton
Feeling hopeless, helpless and ready to give up? Disillusioned with life? Unsure what the future holds? Struggling with events in the past? Not sure which route to take?
If, like me, you answered YES you may wish to read on..
Personally, I felt ready to give up. I felt hopeless and helpless. I had lost everything and nothing I seemed to do was helping. I was severely depressed. Visits to the GP, prescribed medication and work with professionals specialising in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies worked to begin with but not anymore. I needed something different. I needed an additional and alternative addition to my support network, and fast. I threw my last dice and contacted Kevin Powell. What had I to lose?
That last roll of the dice was worthwhile. I am slowly re-building my life with a greater understanding of what is important to me. Kevin has facilitated in helping me to understand, recognise and celebrate my own feelings and the feelings of others. Not only has this been crucial for me, but Kevin has supported me in gaining a greater clarity over aspects in my own life and how to do this rather than basing aspects of my life on opinions of others and assumptions, showing me how assuming (rather than looking at the facts) can be dangerous and cause problems.
Through weekly sessions with Kevin, I now have the sense of purpose I needed to rediscover, I have regained the ability to seek clarity over assuming and most importantly, I have explored my feelings and the feelings of others. I have been empowered to take back control, tackle life challenges rather than "parking them" and move forwards with strategies that help me make sense of what has happened to me over the past few years.
As I initially thought before I met with Kevin, what have I got to lose?
I would just like to say thank you for being there to listen.
Thys weekend has made me realise who I am and what I have got.
From going out with my mates Saturday evening and not being ashamed of myself and opening up and talking to them.
Then on Sunday walking into a bar with medal on and a complete stranger buys me a drink.
Another ex service man and I just chewed the cud and left by saying "same time next year".
I feel I can move on.
I have a past but I now feel I can deal with it and move on and live the rest of my life as me.
I am me and I have it all to live for with my wonderful family and friends and any new friends in the future.
Once again thank you and have a peacefull and fulfilling life.
I came for counselling with Kevin back in the spring of 2018, I felt instantly comfortable.
I always felt at ease and safe during my sessions.
I felt I could explore my thoughts and feelings and Kevin showed continual support and always maintained a non judgemental, kind and helpful manner.
I have achieved a lot from my counselling.
I am extremely grateful because I now have the tools to help myself to get on with a better life.
A great start to exploring the way you feel. Thank you Kevin
Initially I was apprehensive with the thought of counselling - a lot of unknowns, how it works & what the process looks like. When I first met with Kevin he put me at ease outlining that nothing discussed between us gets judged & remains confidential. For the first couple of sessions we just talked, getting to know each other, providing snippets of things from my life that I wanted to explore further. I then began meeting up on a regular basis & felt comfortable sharing my feelings about different things. Kevin & I explored those feelings and what they meant for me. Overtime I have become more confident in acknowledging these feelings and becoming self aware. I highly recommend counselling if like me you need an outlet to discuss things which you may not feel initially comfortable discussing with people you know. Kevin is genuine, warm and doesn't judge you on the things discussed. I highly recommend even one session with Kevin to explore what its all about and then take it from there.
I was feeling really scared about going for counselling, but I was put at ease quickly , and felt I could talk about my worries . I'd like to say thank you for giving me the time to talk without feeling rushed . Talking to someone else has helped me realise who I am and what I have got . I feel I can now move on , and live the rest of my life as me . I would recommend this counselling service
I appreciate the guidance you provided me and listening the way you did.
I found you to be very professional and engaging.
Me; personally since our last session have turned a corner and I have a much brighter outlook. My relationship with my partner is the strongest its been since our start and my relationship with my son has developed rapidly also.
Making the first call was scary as hell, had no idea what to expect other than the fact I needed some help. Turned out it was one of the best decisions I've made. Kevin is non-judgemental, honest and a great person to help you navigate the tougher aspects of whatever you are going through. From where I started to where I am, I couldn't recommend anyone higher. If you are thinking of making the call, or looking for some support he is well worth your consideration less
Your invaluable experience will definitely guide me in my future.
thank you for returning me back to me and helping me realise that my feelings count.
After the death of my father and with my changing family dynamics, my thoughts and feelings were horribly muddled and I was struggling to cope with my daily life let alone look towards the future, I knew I needed professional help. I am so glad I went and got that help, just 8 weeks later and I have more clarity about how I feel about what has happened and am looking forward to my future. I am without a doubt more in touch with my feelings, better able to express myself with others and a happier person. Yes counselling can leave you feeling vulnerable at first but as a rapport and trust is built, it then feels really good to be able to say what you feel in a safe space and to feel listened to. My feelings were placed at the centre of these sessions and I have come to realise they are the one thing we truly own, are valid and should not be ignored regardless of what others say to us. I would highly recommend counselling with Kevin, it has been a positive life changing experience for me.
Kevin's kind nature helped me to talk
I wasn’t at all keen on counselling I thought I could weather the storm on my own. It turned out I needed it more than I thought and when I started the journey the storm was bigger than I expected or anticipated. Kevin listened and I talked openly for the first time and he made me look and search for the answers I needed to find within myself . It wasn’t an easy process but Kevin’s kind nature allowed me to explore what I needed to do & search my feelings. Counselling isnt a cure but what it has helped me to do is to explore myself , see why I feel or react the way I have done , see how I can change and feel better about myself. It has made me think more, explore my feelings and what has value, what doesn’t. Some of the sessions were not easy, some I would feel emotional. I learnt to re focus on what was important and what had real value to me in terms of what I needed to do to go forward . Kevin helped me to have a different perspective and supported me and I will be forever grateful.
My time with Kevin was one of the most rewarding journeys I have been on. He helped me understand everything about myself that I haven’t focused on before and really opened and brand new side to me! He was welcoming, caring and would recommend him to anyone who was looking for counselling.
Many many thanks to Kev for all his support. Quite simply, it just helps to talk and every time i left my sessions with Kev I felt better and more relaxed. He helped me respect my anger and deal with it there and then. If you need support, then there is no better place to be. Thank you Insight.
Kevin was an excellent listener and provided a comfortable, safe and encouraging environment to reflect on some of the difficulties I was experiencing at the time. I cannot recommend Kevin enough for the support, thoughts and direction he took the sessions and for his incredible support. I was daunted at first, but immediately settled and with Kevin's support have made some constructive changes to help my personal wellbeing
