Counselling is a process that helps you deal with emotional and psychological issues that are causing you to feel stressed and unhappy.
We will work together at your pace to help develop inner resources to cope with what is troubling you. We will work in a caring, supportive and safe environment to enable you to focus on the issues that concern you. The approach that I take incorporates person-centred, gestalt, psychodynamic and CBT techniques to assist in this process.
As you understand more about yourself, you will become clearer about the underlying issues contributing to your emotional upsets. You will learn to develop more effective coping strategies. This may be about specific issues or about your life as a whole.
Recognising how you operate within yourself and how you understand other people means you are going to cope better with the challenges of everyday life.
In turn, you will feel more confident, content and resilient to the pressures that continue to come your way. Your life will feel more exciting and easier as the difficulties that were previously present are navigated with more ease. As a result, a greater sense of wellbeing will develop.
HOW Counselling Can Help You
Some of the benefits that come out of counselling sessions include:
- Raising awareness about your thoughts and feelings towards the issues that are troubling you.
- Discovering choices that had not been considered before.
- Exploring possibilities for change by growing confident in your beliefs about yourself.
- Obstacles are challenged and overcome more easily when taking the steps equipped with a more positive frame of reference.
- Developing the capacity to become emotionally self-reliant.
WHO Comes To See A Counsellor?
Anyone can come and that includes you. Sometimes we find ourselves stuck, unable to take the next step to move forward.
Another reason that you might be thinking about coming to have a counselling session is to make a change or solve a problem.
Or sometimes you might just need an opportunity to discuss matters about your health, personal life or what direction your life is heading and this is where counselling sessions can help.
You will know inside that you are now ready to talk about what is troubling you.
