People describe counselling in different ways. I believe that it can offer a person the space and time to talk and explore what is troubling them. A person can often find that they understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviour more clearly as a result. Counselling can help people cope with specific problems and sitautions and find better ways of living.
Some clients come to counselling with a specific problem they would like some help with. Others come with less clear sense of what is wrong. Part of the work is then for us to work together to explore what is wrong and find solutions. I am an integrative counsellor which means that I use different part of different counselling theories according to what problems you are facing and what will be best for you.
Introductory sessions are confidential and no strings attached.
Some people come to counselling with a definite idea of what they would like to talk about and know what problems are standing in their way. Some people come because their GP has suggested that counselling might help.
A lot of people come because they are feeling unhappy in some way but are not sure why. I will help you gently unpick what is going on in your life and try to help you find a way out.×
Unlike some of the media portrayal of psychotherapy and counselling, what I do is very down to earth. You will be sitting in a chair, not lying on the couch, and I do not record endless notes of what you say.
Often people feel a bit nervous of coming to counselling, particularly if it is the first time you have talked about your problems. I will try to make you feel comfortable about talking and to go at a pace that suits you.×
