A common question often asked. And why not? It's easy to see value in the things we believe will make us happy (houses, cars, clothes, new hair cut or outfit). Counselling is an opportunity to invest in yourself. By offering yourself time and a safe space to talk openly and confidentially to a qualified therapist, you can find the key to unlock the you that is feeling trapped and unheard.
An example of issues that I have worked with:
If you find yourself asking this question, or maybe someone has suggested you need it, then maybe this will help you decide.
Do you find yourself stuck in unhealthy or negative life cycles?
Do you struggle in relationships leaving you feel unhappy or unsatisfied?
Do you often feel anxious?
Do you feel your moods affect your day to day life?
Would you benefit from a space to talk about things that are otherwise difficult to be heard or understood by those around you?
Counselling can give you the opportunity to be heard and accepted, to talk about your feelings and help you get in touch with yourself without judgement.
Counselling is not a quick fix. It's a journey of self-exploration that with the right tools and guidance can offer you change and a new path to a more positive life.
Like many professions, deciding on who to choose can be overwhelming. So let me tell you a bit about myself:
My profession as a counsellor stems from my strong belief that, given the right conditions, all people have the ability to change or become more aware of themselves. Self awareness is the key to understanding your behaviours, habits or the areas you feel are unhealthy or have a negative impact in your life.
When listening to you I offer reflection on your feelings and thoughts. Encourage you to explore them freely from a different approach within a safe confidential environment.
I qualified as a integrative humanistic counsellor. This means I work with you as an individual with a person centred approach. Listening with empathy trying to understand the world as you have seen and experienced it.
The answers are always within the client your commitment to the therapy will determine the change. I offer no quick fix I offer commitment to your therapy. Working to my professional standards of ethics ensuring you are held safely and prioritising your well being.
