Sometimes life events can overwhelm us, making us feel stuck and unable to find the way forward. At other times we just need someone who will really listen to us and treat us with respect. At these times talking to a professional can be enormously helpful. It takes courage to ask for help.
I am pleased that you are considering whether counselling could help you and whether I might be the counsellor to choose. On a personal note, I think you will find me approachable, genuine and open. I do not judge, but instead use my abilities to support and empathise with my client to create a safe, confidential space in which a trusting relationship can develop. This therapeutic relationship is different from other relationships because it is all about you, the client. My hope is that the therapeutic relationship we would build will empower you and help you find resources within yourself.
I believe that each one of us is unique with intrinsic worth. Everyone’s life story is equally important and I would work with you sensitively and at your pace in a way that would best suit your needs.
Deciding to have counselling and then knowing what to look for in a counsellor may feel quite a daunting task! Finding a counsellor is a really personal decision, and it’s essential to find someone that is a ‘good fit’ for you, so come and meet me and let’s see if I can be of help.
