What is Counselling?

Confidential therapy and how it can help you

There are many reasons why you might be considering counselling. It may be that you feel a certain way about yourself and feel you have reached a point in your life where you feel you need to process your thoughts and feelings.

Maybe you are experiencing an ongoing crisis and you feel you would benefit from some professional support.

You may have felt this way for a long time and feel that now is the time for change.

The process of counselling is a journey where you talk about your life, your values and your interests as well as exploring the influences and events of the past or present that have shaped you.

Whatever the reason you have decided upon counselling, my aim is to allow you the space to develop insight and self-awareness.

We can often times spend a lot of our lives doing and giving to others, have great difficulty in saying no at the expense of our own self-esteem and well-being. By coming to counselling you’re making an investment in yourself to explore and examine behavioural patterns that no longer serve you.

Counselling gives you the space to think about yourself in a new way, to set goals and to begin to live life in a fuller more self-actualised manner.

There are some things in our life that we cannot change but what we can do is learn to think about things differently so we can live in a place of acceptance within ourselves.

Thinking differently by exploring alternative and broader perspectives in order to further develop personal insight is the key to successful therapy. It is my aim to accompany you on your journey throughout this process in a way that feels safe, non-judgmental and unhurried.

As a BACP Accredited Counsellor I adhere to their ethical code of practice. 

"Thank you so much for walking with me on my journey. What an incredible one it was. I have learnt so much about myself, my behaviour, my way of thinking. Been able to reconnect has been amazing. Thanks again."

"Thank you so much for the time you spent with me (and the extra time) it was most helpful. The journey is a long one it cannot be rushed just one step at a time wishing you the very best and thanks again."

"A big thank you for all you have done for me. You have helped me get my life back which I didn’t think was possible when I first met with you.
You take pride in your work and it shows thanks again"
