There are times when our lives can seem very complicated and confusing. You may feel like you have lost your way and don’t know where you are going? Counselling can provide opportunities to explore thoughts, feelings, hopes and concerns in a safe and comfortable environment, without the fear of being judged.
People decide to have counselling for all sorts of reasons. They may include; anxiety, depression, abuse, low self-esteem, addictions, loss, illness or disability, relationship difficulties, stress, anger, mid life crisis, work related issues, insomnia, problems from childhood, spiritual concerns, or simply feeling overwhelmed by life. With all therapy it is essential to establish a good relationship between client and counsellor. The foundations of this relationship are built on certain core conditions being present; genuineness, acceptance and empathy.
My key values as a counsellor incorporate openness and trust, humour and creativity, hope and optimism, as well as growth and autonomy. If you choose to work with me, we’d arrange to meet at a convenient time for our first session. We would sensitively explore your issue or problem based on my experience and also your knowledge of yourself. We would then discuss and decide how best that we could work together. During these early stages we would typically agree on what you wished to gain from of our sessions and what you require from me.
Taking the first step toward getting help is often the most difficult. Why not give me a call to see if I am could be the right therapist for you?
