Counselling enables you talk about your problems and feelings in a safe and confidential environment and can be of great support during periods of crisis or change.
As a counsellor, I will provide you with a safe, supportive space to work on whatever is troubling you. That may be something specific, such as anxiety, panic attacks or persistent low mood. It may also be something that feels harder to put into words, such as repeating the same relationship patterns, failing to achieve your goals or feeling that you have simply lost your way in life. Whatever you are bringing, we will go at your pace, discussing the difficult issues when you feel you are ready.
By exploring how your past has shaped who you are today, you can achieve increased self-understanding and self-acceptance. As Carl Rogers said, ‘The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change’. Feeling better about yourself can also lead to improvements in your relationships. Confidence and a new sense of direction can also flow from this enhanced self-knowledge. The ability to seek positive change opens up as we heal and learn to move forward.
. One-off sessions can help with finding a solution to a current problem and long or short term counselling can facilitate more in-depth changes. Counselling can help you think clearer, feel less stuck, relate better with others, change unhelpful behaviours, feel more in control and get more from life. If you feel that talking to your friends and family does not provide you with the support you long for, counselling will help you make positive changes in your life
