What is Counselling?
Counselling can be a place where you can get the support you need to deal with the issues which are important to you.
Living with or experiencing any mental health condition may leave you feeling like you have nowhere to turn to, you may feel like your friends and family just don't 'get' how you feel or that you don't want to 'burden' them with your worries. This is common. Mental health issues affect everyone in different ways and I understand how difficult this can be.
You may just need someone to talk to, we can do that.
You may want to come to terms with a life event, in a non-judgemental environment, we can do that.
You may want coping strategies to get you through the day, we can help with that.
You may want to focus on the future, set some goals and move forward, we can help with that too.
You can expect a quiet, comfortable, safe and relaxed space where your well-being is of the up-most importance. We can begin by developing and nurturing a therapeutic relationship built from trust and respect. You decide where we begin and what we discuss, so you are always in control.
Some of the issues our counsellor has previously worked with...
Acceptance of health conditions
You may be asking what makes me different from a lot of other therapists?
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor, meaning I'm trained and experienced in several therapeutic approaches. I know that you are unique, that no one model of therapy will suit all, so that’s exactly why I aim for our sessions to be unique, tailoring my approach to your individual needs.
