1 to 1 Counselling

Counselling Individuals, Couples, Young People, in Schools and Employee Assistance for Businesses

2006 to 2019 - 13 years in private practice, Thank You

Hello and Welcome to my website

I am Larraine Cox, an experienced, insured counsellor offering you a flexible, confidential service via face-to-face, telephone, Skype, mobile (within 12 miles of WA7) and online options.

I work with individuals, couples, young people, schools and businesses.

My experience come from thirteen years in private practice, five years working as the counsellor in all Halton Children’s Centres, over seven years as a couples / relationship counsellor for Relate and three years in a local secondary school as well as working with and for local businesses and several Occupational Health Services.

Appointments are usually day time but a limited number of evening sessions may be available.

I work with many issues and understand asking for help can be very difficult, especially when dealing with strong emotions such as jealousy, relationship issues, anger, stress, anxiety, panic and / or depression, to name but a few.

I understand that at times life can feel overwhelming; worrying about an unresolved past or current relationship; bullying at home, at school or at work. I understand there are often struggles with the challenges of being in, or living with, a step parent, or blended family and that life changes can feel too challenging with all the conflicting emotions around divorce, long term illness, redundancy and / or retirement - you may not believe this right now but, talking therapies really can help.

I am happy to work with anger issues, any kind of bereavement or loss, including pet bereavement, depression, cancer, age, divorce, affairs, betrayal, anxiety, specific and generalised anxiety, sexual and gender diversity, cross-dressing, addictions, abuse - sexual abuse (past or present), domestic abuse and abusive behaviours, stress, coming out, self harming and if you are having suicidal thoughts - you really can talk to me.

Relationship counselling doesn't depend on you being married, living together, same sex, opposite sex, transgender, cisgender or transsexual - if you are in any kind of relationship that has problems - this service is for you.

If you have suffered a loss or bereavement from miscarriage, suicide, cancer, age, are having issues over being straight or LGBTQ+ or any of the other myriad reasons, you will be offered a caring and compassionate counselling session and whatever you bring to the session will be treated with confidence and respect (within safeguarding / confidentiality guidelines).

Successful counselling often works best when there is chemistry / trust between client and counsellor so, in the first face to face or telephone session, you will be asked, after 30 minutes, if you wish to continue. If you do not, session ends and no charge or obligation. Also at our first session there will be a brief discussion on confidentiality and the counselling agreement we will be working within.

I hope we meet soon.
