Why counselling and how does it work?

There are times in our lives where we all struggle to make sense of a situation be it a change in your domestic circumstances, children leaving home, struggling to cope with daily life, redundancy or that something that you can not put your finger on, a sense or feeling that something is not quite right, really wondering perhaps who you are, where you are going, what you are doing or the trauma of losing a loved one.

Counselling is a “ Talking therapy ” and as a Counsellor I provide a safe non judgemental space for you to share and explore what is happening for you. Together we will explore your world, your feelings, your experiences and emotions. As a counsellor I will offer you no answers or solutions, but I will accompany you as we discover them together allowing you to take ownership of your own experience. At all times I will be respectful of you, your feelings and emotions and keep you safe.  Together we will help you understand yourself better, make positive changes and realise your own potential.

 

It is the relationship that heals.

 

The building of a trusting relationship is the corner stone of my counselling practice. The quality of the relationship between counsellor and client is the foundation upon which powerful healing experiences are built. Together we can develop that self awareness and self understanding that is essential for healing and personal growth. As a person centred therapist I believe that all individuals have within themselves the ability to grow and live their own lives in a way that is satisfying to them.

 

I offer a safe, non- judgmental space in which to explore what is happening for you. To talk about how you are and how you feel, the opportunity to uncover, explore and express feelings and experiences that are perhaps not easy to express elsewhere and to get to understand yourself better.  

 

Counselling is a journey and we all start some where. 

 

Your first step on this journey was finding this site and one of the most courageous decisions that you can take and so I thank you for taking that time to make it.
