Counselling offers an opportunity for you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential setting, with someone who is trained to neither judge nor advise. The overall aim of counselling is to provide an opportunity for you to work towards living in a way you find more satisfying and resourceful. The objectives of each particular counselling relationship will vary according to each individual’s needs.
Counselling may be concerned with resolving specific problems or development issues, coping with a crisis, or making a difficult decision. It may arise from developing personal insight and knowledge, working through feelings of inner conflict or improving relationships with others.
Counselling can help with:
- Bereavement and Loss
- Abuse – Emotional and Physical
- Anger Management
- Family Issues
- Panic Attacks
- Eating Disorders
- Addictions and Trauma
My role is to facilitate changes in ways that respect your values, personal resources and capacity for choice within your cultural context. The relationship that develops between us is a very important part of the process. You need to feel comfortable, safe and understood.
Many issues can be resolved in short-term work, whilst others may require longer-term therapy.
