About me and my therapy practice
Whatever is troubling you I will encourage you to tell me about it in a safe and nonjudgmental setting. You can share things that perhaps you don’t want to talk to friends or family about. Together we will endeavour to fully explore and understand your feelings, reduce distress, and support you to move forward as you choose.
What is Counselling
Sometimes life can seem overwhelming and talking to a counsellor can help to get things into perspective. Counselling offers you a secure space to explore what is going on for you, with someone trained to listen carefully, with respect and really try to fully understand you and your feelings. Counselling is not about someone “telling you what to do, giving advice, or simply granting your wishes” but can be about supporting you to explore your feelings and concerns which may then make decision making clearer.
Current crisis / deeper issue / Self Care
Surprisingly quite often the thing that brings a person to seek support e.g. some sort of current crisis may be a way in to understanding deeper causes of unhappiness, anxiety or depression. Sometimes people live with a feeling of "something just not being quite right". Counselling can help develop Self-Awareness which in turn can be life changing! That’s the good news - but like most things in life it doesn’t happen without effort, and can be painful. However from personal experience I would say the results are definitely worth it! So be brave, aren’t you worth it? Answering “Yes” to that question is the first step on your journey (with me by your side), to personal growth and hopefully increased happiness. I look forward to hearing from you.
A safe confidential space to discuss whatever is troubling you. I will encourage you to share how you are feeling and what this means to you. Together we will tackle what you would like to do and I will encourage you to share your plans and I will support you to put them into action.
My first session
When you get in touch I will email you over some details and there is a little bit of paperwork to fill in before the first session. I will ask you to complete and return the paperwork and pay the fee for the first session. I will then confirm the appointment (either online or face to face) and send you either the Zoom invitation or the directions to the counselling room. In the first session I explain how the sessions work and about confidentiality and its limits. I am happy to answer any questions you have. We will then begin the session and I encourage you to take your time and tell me what is troubling you.
