People come to counselling for many different reasons. It maybe that you are struggling with a specific issue such as bereavement, illness or relationship difficulties. It maybe that you need someone to talk to but worry about burdening your family or friends. Perhaps you need support to develop better ways of coping in times of stress, or explore your own ways of behaving and relating with other people. It maybe that you are feeling a sense of emptiness and fulfilment, or are looking for clearer direction and life meaning.
Whatever your reasons, counselling can help provide the opportunity to explore, make sense of, and work through difficult and painful processes which can help us live a happier more fulfilling life.
I believe that when choosing a counsellor, it is very important to find someone that you are comfortable talking to and with whom you feel safe. The thought of sharing a problem with a stranger can be very daunting but it can be so much easier to share really difficult issues with someone who is not a member of your immediate family or one of your friends.
My aim is to provide a safe, non-judgemental, confidential environment from where you can talk about anything you want, however difficult. I will listen carefully and non-judgementally, with respect in complete confidence. Together we may explore what is troubling you, and begin to find a way for you to reach your own decisions and make your own choices.
I offer a free 30 minute no obligation meeting where we can discuss your reasons for seeking counselling. This free session gives you the opportunity to ask questions and to decide whether you wish to proceed and arrange some future appointments.
The choice is yours. Should you wish to proceed a regular date and time will be agreed.
