The Wright Way Forward

A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life

Counselling and therapy for individuals in a safe, comfortable and private setting

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Wright Way Forward,

I am Thalia, a counsellor committed to supporting adults and young people on their journey towards healing and self-discovery.

I provide both short and long-term therapy to individuals in Leicestershire, Earl Shilton, Hinckley, Bosworth, Burbage, Barwell, Ibstock and Newbold Verdon. I also provide remote counselling with online and telephone sessions.

My approach is rooted in warmth, understanding, compassion, empathy and the belief that everyone has the capacity for growth and positive change.

Understanding your struggles:

Our lives can present challenges in our home, work or even social life that often result in complex emotional situations. I specialise in connecting with the deep emotions you're experiencing. Feeling alone, confused, lost direction, hypervigilance, irritability, abandonment and feelings of shame and guilt. The fear of trusting your own judgment and the questions in your head can be overwhelming, wishing you had an ‘off switch’ for all those intrusive barrage of thoughts.

Impact on day-to-day life:

Emotional struggles can make it harder in your daily life, causing brain fog, difficulty concentrating, forgetfulness, hypervigilance and an overwhelming sense of guilt, especially in your relationships with your partner, family, and even your work colleagues. Getting out of bed every morning may feel like an impossible task and the desire to please others may overshadow your own needs. Decision-making becomes a challenge, leaving you feeling stuck and questioning your own self-worth. I want you to know that you're not alone.

How I Can Help:

I am here to support you on your journey to rediscover your worth, find confidence, and uncover your purpose. Together, we can work towards helping you to find relief by managing the burden of anxiety, providing you with a sense of calm and clarity. My goal is to create a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings, gaining insights that lead to calm and self-assurance for that positive transformation that you are looking for, and empowering you with the tools to be able to face your future with confidence.

My Journey to Counselling

My path to becoming a counsellor is deeply rooted in my own lived experiences. Like you, I've faced my own share of challenges, and it was through therapy that I found the warmth, empathy, and acceptance I needed to heal. This transformative experience ignited my passion for helping others navigate their own paths to healing and self-discovery. I feel extremely fortunate that I have a career that enables me to help people with their own lived experiences. I bring both professional expertise and a genuine understanding of the transformative power of therapeutic support.

If you're ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing, I'm here to guide and support you every step of the way. Together, we can work towards a future filled with confidence, purpose, and a renewed sense of self.

Speak in Confidence

Counselling takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with someone who will listen with sensitivity and empathy - and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.

A problem shared...

Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression - many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems - and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.

Make better, healthier new choices

Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, heathier choices moving forward.

My approach

As a person centred counsellor I can help you to realise your worth and understand unhealthy patterns that you have in all areas of your life, so that you have the tools to change them. I can also help you to understand and connect with all your relationships on a deeper level.

I have helped survivors of abusive relationships to realise their own worth, find their confidence and overcome their anxieties. I have also helped individuals suffering with anxiety, depression, self-doubt and low self-esteem as well as supporting clients through bereavement, childhood trauma, bullying and sexuality.

People come to me for help with a wide range of issues. Here are just a few of the more common difficulties that can be helped and supported through counselling:

Feelings of stress or anxiety

Panic attacks

Relationship problems



Problems with confidence or self-esteem

Grief, loss or bereavement

Trauma and post-traumatic stress

Some frequently asked questions

What's the difference between counselling and therapy?

Counselling is usually a good way to help with a current problem; something that can be discussed and - hopefully - resolved within a limited number of sessions. Over a certain number of weeks the understanding of the problem improves and away forward becomes clear. Therapy often describes work that goes a bit deeper, towards more substantial life issues and problems having a deeper effect on the client’s life. Therapy often requires a long-term approach, so the number of sessions can be open-ended.

Which option is most suitable depends on the client and the difficulties they are facing. In some cases counselling works well as an ongoing, longer-term option - or therapy can manage to resolve an issue in just a few sessions.

Will everything I say be kept confidential?

Everything that is said within the counselling room is private - this is one of the main ways counselling and therapy differ from talking to a friend or relative. Once you are comfortable with the format of weekly sessions and the safe space they provide, you will find the freedom to speak in confidence is of great value.

Note that there are some situations where you may be a risk to yourself or others, and there the law requires that I notify an authority; in these cases I may not be able to keep total confidentiality. Breaking confidentiality is very rare though, and only happens after the person concerned has been informed.

Can I bring a friend or relative with me?

Usually I am asked this question by people who are nervous about entering into counselling, or when they are looking for support in coming to see a therapist. This anxiety is understandable, but a key aspect of therapy is that you should feel free to talk about any issues you feel are important to you. Having someone else with you who can be connected those issues makes this opening-up more difficult, so for this reason I do not see clients accompanied by friends or family.

How long will I need to have counselling?

How long a period of counselling lasts will vary from person to person and depend on the depth of the issues they are facing. For some people a couple of sessions helps to bring their problems into focus, and they feel ready to move forward; other problems may require more of an open-ended approach.

Before we begin any work we will agree on the number of sessions we’ll undertake, and at the end of that number review our progress. As long as we both agree further therapy will be of benefit to you, sessions can continue.

How long will I have to wait for an appointment?

My aim is to offer a first appointment - known as an initial assessment - within 1-2 weeks. Then we would arrange a set number of counselling sessions to take place at the same time every week, that is convenient for you and where I have availabity. How quickly these sessions can begin will depend on the availabity of that free ‘slot’.
