Kate Bryant; Registered MBACP
I am a fully qualified counsellor offering short or long term counselling to individuals.
I appreciate it may be difficult to make the first step and arrange an appointment so here is a little more information about counselling and me.
WHY SEEK COUNSELLING?
Not everyone will have access to good support networks and it's not always easy to talk to those we are close to about our problems. In session you will be given the opportunity to talk freely and privately. To have dedicated time in a safe place away from the influence of others.
1st SESSION OFFER
You may not know what exactly you want to talk about in counselling. It may be that things are just ‘not right’ for you. Research has shown that one of the most important aspects in counselling is a good client - counsellor relationship. This is why I offer an initial session (approx 30 mins) at a reduced rate, where we can have a chat about your situation and what you would like to achieve through counselling. You will have opportunity ask any questions you may have and get a genuine feel for how counselling works.
Although my counselling approach is person centred, I use an integrative style, drawing on several techniques and interventions depending on each client’s needs. Basically a flexible, tailored approach to each individual client. I offer a warm, empathic and confidential service placing an emphasis on creating a respectful therapeutic relationship where you can feel safe to look at your issues. I will work alongside you, at your pace, to explore the issues you bring to the counselling sessions.
WHAT YOU MAY ACHIEVE
Through counselling you may gain insight into patterns of relationships/behaviors, increase your self-awareness, improve self-confidence and feel more able to face challenges. I am motivated to support clients to help find their own way to strength and peace of mind, understanding, acceptance and control of life.
