What is Counselling ?
Counselling provides a safe space to explore any issues and difficulties. You may need a space to to talk with someone who is neutral and not a family member or friend.
I believe as a counsellor that there is no single approach as we are all different, have individual needs and personal circumstances. Working with an integrative approach enables me to tailor your counselling sessions to your specific needs.
Counselling can help you gain a greater understanding and more awareness to be able to find ways that can help you cope an the ability to move forward. This can help you with your motivation and help build resistance to be able to manage with stressful situations.
What you say in counselling is confidential and what we discuss stays between us. However, there are a few expectations to this, which I will discuss in our first meeting.
What happens when I contact you ?
You can contact me via email or telephone. When you contact me, we will discuss together what you hope you gain from counselling and if the services I provide is what you are looking for. We will then book an initial session where we can discuss your needs further.
How many sessions will I need ?
The number of sessions you have is something that we can discuss together. These can be tailored to your needs and what you feel you would like to explore. I offer both short term and long term counselling.
We will review our work together throughout.
What happens in our first session ?
Together we will explore the difficulties you are experiencing and discuss what you
hope to gain from our sessions together.
