As a professional counsellor, I view my role as an objective observer; informed by Psycho-dynamic theory and a relational approach to practice.
Careful and considered thought is applied to feelings, thoughts, and relationships with both self and others. As the therapeutic relationship develops, meaning is applied and links drawn between the past and the present.
In my experience, it is the therapeutic relationship which is considered fundamental to the counselling process. When two people agree to contribute to insight and growth the potential for change is advanced.
"Human emotions have deep evolutionary roots, a fact that may explain their complexity." (Plutchik)
Human nature is shared by all.
Emotions play an important part in our existence; anger, sadness, fear, hope, shame, love and jealousy. However, it is the psychological significance that we apply to them that give them 'meaning'.
As a professional counsellor, my role is to facilitate the exploration of meaning and significantly, the importance of meaning to you. Anxiety, depression, sadness, guilt, abuse, stress, self-harm, anger, shame, loss, and addiction... are more than just words.
Choosing the right counsellor who meets your needs is essential. Often, making the first contact can be the hardest part.
During our first session, we will spend time considering your present concerns, your expectations and how counselling might help. There will be opportunity to ask questions about me and my commitment to safe, ethical practice. As part of the first session, we will explore the option of short term work (usually 6-12 sessions) or we may decide on an open-ended approach.
Short-term work can be helpful in addressing a specific, intermittent problem as the limited time frame can provide focus. It can also be a useful first step into therapy. Open ended work is wide-ranging offering the possibility of in-depth exploration.
