Counselling Services Preston

Cheryl King Counselling Associates specialise in the following counselling services based in the Preston and surrounding areas, along with offering remote counselling via Skype and FaceTime.

  • ‘FaceTime’ or ‘Skype’ Counselling – Technology is rapidly changing the ways we can interact with each other, and counselling is no exception. ‘FaceTime’ is free ‘Apple’ video conferencing software which allows people to talk face to face in real time through a computer or Apple device. ‘Skype’ is free software which works in a similar way to ‘FaceTime’. Both offer secure and confidential online meetings in real time.
  • Bereavement and Grief – Grief is a normal reaction to loss. It is characterised by the emotional pain, despair and upset experienced when you lose someone or something you love. Intense grief is often experienced following bereavement, or the death of a loved one.
  • Low Self-Esteem – Self-esteem can best be described as a person’s sense of self-worth. It is linked to self-confidence and self-respect and is based on a persons beliefs about themselves.
  • Anxiety – Anxiety is a general term covering feelings of worry, fear, nervousness and apprehensiveness. We all experience anxiety at times. Most people will have felt the tense, nervousness feelings associated with anxiety when faced with certain challenges such as sitting an exam, attending a job interview, visiting the dentist, taking part in an important sporting event or making a wedding speech.
  • Panic Attacks – A panic attack can be a terrifying experience. Panic attacks are characterised by rapid and severe physical changes such as sweating, feeling faint or nauseous, rapid heartbeat, trembling or weakness, breathing difficulty and chest pain.
  • Depression – Many of us will feel depressed or experience periods of low mood, when things go wrong for us or we are struggling to cope with an unexpected setback or problem.
  • Addiction – Addiction can best be described as dependence on a substance or behaviour which can be pleasurable, but becomes compulsive to the extent that it interferes with normal life.
  • Stress – Stress is the feeling of being under emotional or mental pressure. Everyone experiences stress in their lives, and a certain amount of stress can be a good thing in that it helps to motivate us, provides a driver to help us achieve what we want to in life and helps us perform well under pressure.
