Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are uncomfortable or causing you pain. It can provide a safe space and regular time for you to talk and explore difficult feelings and choices, with someone who is unconnected to your situation.
As your counsellor I am here to support you and to respect your views. I aim to help you to find your own insight and understanding of your problems and do not usually give advice.
Counselling can help you to:
· deal with feelings of depression or sadness, and look at have a more positive outlook on life
· cope with a relationship breakdown or bereavement
· deal with redundancy or work-related stress
· look at issues that are preventing you from achieving your ambitions
· understand yourself and your problems better
· feel more confident
· develop a better understanding of other people's points of view
· make different choices.
Counselling can often involve talking about difficult or painful feelings and often is not easy. In most cases, it takes a number of sessions before the counselling starts to make a difference, and a regular commitment is needed to make the best use of the therapy. For most people counselling is a positive experience which enables them to gain greater self-awareness and encourages living a more satisfying life.
I invite you to contact me to arrange an appointment and look forward to meeting you.
