Counseling
Many people go through periods of difficulty in their lives, which can leave them feeling:
  • Anxious
  • Depressed
  • Unable to cope
Counsellors are trained to help people understand more about their difficulties. They can help find ways of tackling or coping with them.
Our counsellor, Shardi Daryan, works at the surgery on Tuesday mornings. If you feel you would benefit from seeing Shardi please discus this with one of the doctors.
Shardi sees people with a variety of life’s problems, such as:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety/Panic
  • Stress
  • Obsessions
  • Anger difficulties
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Eating problems
  • Loss/Bereavement
Counselling will generally be short term. People often find that one or two sessions are enough to clarify difficulties and explore more helpful ways of coping. However the number and frequency of sessions would be negotiated between you and Paula.
Shardi will also be able to advise you about short courses run locally dealing with issues such as stress, panic, anger and self-esteem.
Each 'one to one' counselling session lasts between 30 and 45minutes.
The short courses are normally 2 hour sessions which run for up to 6 weeks. They run in the evenings as well as the daytime.
