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.
