Counselling

What is counselling? 

Counselling is an opportunity to sit with someone who will listen to your thoughts, feelings and fears.
They will not judge you for your thoughts, feelings or action but they will help you work out what you need to feel better.
A Counsellor is trained to listen to you. not just what you say but how you say it.  

Your words, your body language and your facial expression all make up the way we communicate our feelings. 

Sometimes we don't recognise how a situation makes us truly feel and a counsellor can help you to recognise this.

Why is it useful?

Counselling is useful for many reasons and can assist you to think clearer when you're unsure what you should do next.

Can you think of a time when someone really listened to how you are feeling? 

 Without telling you what you should do or shifting the conversation because they feel their journey is more important than yours

or perhaps they feel uncomfortable listening to your feelings.

Counselling can assist with many areas in our lives such as anxiety, depression, grief, low self-esteem/confidence and trauma.


​How can it help? 

Many people carry their emotions as they don't want to burden their loved ones or make them worry.

 Sometimes we just need someone to listen and help us to help work though our conflicting thoughts , feelings and the opinions of those close to us. 

Counselling is useful to help you gain insight into why you react to situations. 

Together we can explore your past, your present issues and your wishes for the future. 

Counselling is a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement. 


What do I do?

I am trained to utilise an Integrative Approach which allows me to use the variety of approaches for your needs.

I predominantly utilise a Person Centred Approach and may utilise Cognitive Behaviour tools as a way of information gathering and to assist in identifying negative thought processes.  

I can explore various aspects of your past using Psychodynamic Approaches 

The number of sessions you may need to explore your personal situation will vary.
