About me and my therapy practice

  1. How can counselling help me?
  1. If you imagine your feelings like a ball of tangled up string, counselling is the process of gently exploring your 'emotional knots,' which keep you from thinking clearly, feeling happy & confident in your work, family & relationships. Counselling helps you follow each thread of thought back to where it began & carefully untangle mixed up emotions & beliefs, so you can see them more clearly & decide which beliefs & habits you want to keep & which you would prefer to get rid of.

What happens in a counselling session?

We talk about whatever you want to share, without any pressure to say more than you want to. I will listen & try to get a sense of what it's like to be you, how you feel, how you came to be the person you are today & how you would like things to change. We can talk about anything - there's no subject off-limits, no words you can't use, no feelings you can't express. We can talk about ordinary things, difficult & traumatic things, sad & happy things - whatever you bring will be relevant - you can't 'do it wrong.'

How will I feel after counselling?

By the end of our work together I would expect you to feel:

  1. - more emotionally resilient, that you'll feel that when life knocks you down you will feel able to 'bounce back'.
  2. -  happier in yourself
  3. - able to manage difficult relationships, situations & dilemmas with a cool head will have improved, and that as a result your self-confidence will be high.

How long will I be in counselling?

It's hard to say - it's my job to make myself redundant - to help you learn to care for and maintain your mental health. Once you can do that, you won't need me any more.
