Counselling is a safe, confidential space where you can use the time to talk about concerns, changes or unresolved issues that are affecting your life.
You may feel that you are stuck in a situation and cannot see a clear way through. Talking to a trained counsellor allows you to be listened to without judgement within a framework of respect and acceptance.
My counselling approach is integrative and client centred. Sessions are tailored to the needs and personality of the individual.
The first appointment is a free half-hour introductory session. This provides an opportunity to see whether counselling would be a helpful way forward for you. Subsequent sessions are an hour in length and cost £30. Concessions may be negotiated.
The benefits of counselling can include:
Increased confidence and self-esteem - ability to cope better in difficult circumstances - improved relationships - clarification of confused thoughts & feelings - assertiveness – personal insight – improved emotional health – improved recovery from past trauma and addictions -
Counselling can be short term or long-term, depending on the client and their needs. We usually agree to six sessions initially and then regularly review to determine whether we feel there is still a need for further work together.
