Sometimes we all find it hard to accept something that has happened. Sometimes we have feelings we don't understand or find our feelings painful to cope with. Other times we just need someone impartial to talk too, to share our feelings with, explore our options, someone professional and unconnected to our lives. Everyone's reasons for coming into therapy and what they want from it will be different.
Counselling can give you insight into your feelings and reveal unconscious processes and patterns that could be contributing to your problems. Understanding these feelings and identifying these patterns and unconscious processes can take time. So, it's imperative that you feel comfortable working with me as our relationship needs a strong working alliance.
I offer counselling in Potters Bar (EN6) and I work to an integrative relational model and use our therapeutic relationship to inform my work.
I have called my practice 'Listen Counselling' as that's what I do; and more importantly you will be heard. I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment. This is essential for you to explore your emotions, anxiety and/or difficulties to help understand yourself and subsequently help you move on.
Sessions are for 50 minutes each and are at the same time every week. Once we agree a day and time, that will become your time, reserved just for you. We will discuss this at your initial meeting. My practice is in a lovely small quiet discreet clinic.
At our first meeting, we will discuss why you have come for counselling. It is a chance for you to tell me what you want to get from our time together. We will make an agreement as to how long your therapy will last and discuss at what points we will review our progress. You may also choose to have on-going, open ended counselling if you feel it would help you.
You can either arrange your initial meeting by sending me an email or calling. When calling to if I am unavailable, please leave your name and telephone number so I can call you back. When I return your call, I will ask if you able to talk in case it's not appropriate for you to speak.
