Counselling provides you with an opportunity and space to talk about things that may be difficult to share with anyone else. It provides a safe place for you to become more effective in your life. It helps you identify and overcome barriers to achieving your potential, promoting and developing self-awareness and empowering you to make informed choices in your academic, personal and social lives. Counselling is not about giving advice or telling you what to do. You will feel truly heard without the opinions and judgements of others.
As you begin to have an increased understanding of yourself, you will develop a healthier relationship with yourself and build on your emotional resilience. I provide an opportunity for you to work through your presenting issues which can range from self-esteem, lifestyle issues, relationships, anxiety, depression or anything that is affecting your mood. We all deserve to be happy, or a least be the best we can.
I can also support you to develop a more positive way of thinking and to acquire healthy techniques and coping skills to resolve any issues you may have. It is a commitment to yourself and an opportunity to allow you to change your perspective as to how you handle stressful situations. If you feel ready to talk to someone, I will listen and value you.
If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment, please get in touch and I will respond the same day. Thank you.
