Counselling provides you with the time and opportunity to talk about what is troubling you in a confidential environment and with someone who will listen to you and respect what you are saying.
You may come to counselling because of difficulties that you are experiencing, such as a relationship breakdown, bereavement or redundancy. Or you may want help dealing with feelings of sadness, depression, anxiety or low self-worth that donít seem to be connected to any particular event.
Counselling will help you to deal with specific problems, cope with crises, improve your relationships and develop better ways of living. Generally speaking counselling would be considered to be short term and would last between four to twelve sessions depending on the nature of the problem.
How can I help?
As a trained counsellor I will help you to explore the nature of your problem or difficulty and what you would like to achieve by coming to counselling.
You can talk about your life, thoughts and feelings in an open way that may not be possible with family or friends. I will listen to what you have to say in an atmosphere of warmth, empathy and respect without judging you or telling you what to do.
I will help you learn more about yourself so that you can gain the insights that you need to understand the nature of your problems, find ways of resolving your difficulties and make the changes that you want.
Having problems that you are struggling with and that feel irresolvable can make life and relationships difficult and you can feel very much alone. If you would like to talk about how counselling can help you, do get in touch.
