Geraldine Kirwan

Counsellor in Heswall

Lockdown has reminded us all that life is really too short to waste. Let me work alongside you to change your situation for the better right now. Young people are my speciality, though I have helped all ages.
You will find that change can come really quickly.
Sometimes things get far too challenging and pressurised that it is extremely difficult to see a way to have better moments, better days, a better life. That is when you might need someone else to help you. Friends and family are too close, too involved, and sometimes can even be the cause of your stress, so opening out to them may not be the answer at all. In fact, perhaps you have found that it even makes it worse.
I will support you and understand where you are right now.
I have worked with children and teenagers for decades and absolutely love it. There is no more challenging time than in this period of Covid 19, and they deserve all the support they can get to see a brighter future. I will help them get there! Parents too are in a totally new world, and my experience will help you through. are right now, and help you find ways to release the real you, the happier you, the confident you.

Background & Qualifications

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I realise that I am not living your life, nor have I had exactly the same life experiences as you. I know that you are actually your own expert and hold the answers to your way forward to a better life. With my help, you will uncover those answers, and gain the emotional energy to act on them.

You can be assured of complete confidentiality, support and empathy. I am very patient, yet will also challenge you to reach your goals.

I offer many years of experience, commitment, confidence and passion to help you develop the life you want.
I have many testimonials that can be requested from me if you would like to hear how I have worked with others.

I am trained in telephone work and will be happy to work with you by me phoning you on your mobile. If you prefer face to face then we can easily meet on Zoom, Skype or FaceTime.
