What is counselling?

Counselling is a form of talking therapy that can help you to find renewed meaning and purpose in your life.

Whoever you are, whatever you are experiencing at the moment, if you feel you need help dealing with problems and worries, I can give you the time and space, in a private and confidential setting, to explore bothersome thoughts and feelings.

Whether we feel anxious, stressed, depressed, angry, guilty or ashamed, those feelings tell us that we are not where we want to be.

I can listen to you in a non-judgemental way and together we may come to see more clearly, possibly from a renewed perspective, what is happening. Hopefully you will find enough space and acceptance to explore past and present thoughts and feelings. This may enable you to gain greater understanding and to discover real life solutions.

Some psychological tools as defined by different psychotherapeutic models may be of benefit to you.

Sessions are confidential, unless you can be of serious danger to yourself or others. Even then, whatever you say would not be shared with anyone else without discussing the situation with you first whenever possible.

Whether we are young or more mature, rich or poor, man or woman, tall or small, of any background, ethnicity or sexual orientation, we can all benefit from Counselling at difficult times in our lives.

To be of the fullest benefit, the process requires continuity and regularity. It can be long term or short term. The sessions normally take place once a week and last for 50 minutes actual Counselling.
