What to Expect?Counselling provides a safe, confidential place to talk about the issues you are finding difficult to cope with. It can help you to explore your feelings and look at your patterns of behaviour. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Friends and family can offer you their support and advice but sometimes it's easier to share with someone who is not involved and can help you to see things from a different prospective.
Counselling is not about giving you advice; but to assist you in gaining a better understanding of what you are experiencing and feeling and to assist you in finding ways to live your life more positively. I can offer a safe and confidential place for you to share, explore and work through those difficulties which may be causing you distress.
I offer short or long term counselling, depending on your needs. Some people come for counselling and find they can resolve their issues within 6, 8 or 10 weeks and some find they need longer, once they begin to work through their difficulties. There is no limit, just a process to fit your needs.
Once you make contact we will discuss a time to have an initial meeting for us to meet and for you to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.
For you to benefit from counselling it is important for you to feel safe and comfortable with me.
