Hi, I’m Jamie Forster!

Person-centred counselling in the heart of Cheshire

Who I am

Hello and welcome

Akeso counselling is a small private practice dedicated to offering safe and confidential counselling in the heart of Cheshire.  My goal is to offer person-centred counselling here in the northwest, as a way to encourage personal empowerment and relief from a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, or bereavement to breakdown of relationships and longer term mental health issues.

As a person-centred counsellor, I believe that you already have every resource necessary to face your depression, anxiety or emotional breakdown.  Counselling involves therapeutic dialogue between the client and counsellor, to explore the different conditions that have been place on your ability to access your own power and happiness.

I will use the person-centred approach to offer you an empathic and non-judgemental therapeutic experience, that is designed to make you feel accepted an safe to explore the furthest corners of your life.  Mental health is affected by so many more things that just depression and anxiety that everyone talks about, these are often just side effects of other issues, including:

·         Fears and phobias

·         Family issues

·         Family bereavement

·         Loss of pet

·         Family issues

·         Childhood problems

·         Bullying

·         Sexuality

·         Children issues

·         Parenting issues

·         Work-related stress

·         Sexual trauma

Here at Akeso counselling I do not focus on issues, I focus on people and truly believe that in the right environment people can gain greater understanding of their self and facilitate the change they want to see in their own lives.

Bereavement Counselling services

Bereavement counselling is a specialist type of counselling that focusses on the loss of a special person in their life.  I can help you work through the feelings of grief and together, we can work thought the overwhelming and often chaotic thinking that is associated with the loss of a loved one.

In addition to this, I offer therapy specific to pet bereavement, as the loss of our beloved pets can be very traumatic to some and difficult to overcome.  Here at Akeso, no loss is too big or too small and I full understand that any type of loss can lead to significant and long lasting problems.

The grieving process is one of the most difficult times in a person’s life, but we can explore the emotional and practicalities of loss in any form, and together we can find your new normal!

There is no greater privilege in life than witnessing someone grow into what they always were but could not see….
