Counselling is a confidential talking therapy and may be able to help you to become more aware, understanding and accepting of your thoughts, behaviours, feelings and emotions about a situation or event in your life.
Talking with a Counsellor may help to give you more awareness and understanding and provide help and support and encourage you to develop confidence in your own ability to help yourself. Many clients have said to me, that coming and talking to a counsellor wasn’t quite what they had expected and that it had helped them in many different ways.
Counselling may help with the many personal issues which can sometimes affect us as we go through life and may provide extra support outside your network of family and friends.
All counselling sessions are for one hour, during which time you can talk about your reasons for coming to counselling, if counselling is right for you and if we can work together.
Coming to see a Counsellor for the first time can feel daunting and you may feel hesitant about sharing personal information with a complete stranger. I fully understand these feelings and I can offer you a safe, quiet and undisturbed space for you to come and talk about any concerns and worries you may have in a confidential, respectful, non-judgemental and empathic environment, while maintaining safe, professional boundaries.
