Dale Fowler Qualified Psychoanalytical Counsellor MBACP
Welcome and I thank you for taking the time to read the following.
I have spent many years understanding people's anxieties, some I'm sure are quite possibly not too far away from your own. Though in saying that we are all still very unique, we are all complex and we all need our particular anxieties properly understood.
I would also like to add that I appreciate how difficult it is to reach out for Counselling, or to even think about doing so, so your call will be treated with kind consideration.
The purpose of Counselling is to offer a person the opportunity to talk, think and develop in confidence within a safe, comfortable environment. For many it can be the only space available where a person can genuinely be open and frank without fear.
Unfortunately for some, Counselling is usually approached as a last resort in dealing with the situation and so we may have decided to quite often soldier on keeping a stiff upper lip, never allowing even our closest friends or family to know how we are genuinely feeling, until it gets to the point where it feels too much to cope with.
Or perhaps we have discovered 'quick fixes' that temporarily submerge the anxiety in the hope that it won't return. Usually by this point it feels as though nothing more can be done and perhaps 'alone' you may be right......I believe together with Counselling we can do much more.
I am an experienced and qualified counsellor with private consulting rooms in Harlow and Hertford, if you are thinking about seeing a counsellor, then please send me an email or give me a call so we can arrange an appointment at a mutually convenient time.
Short term work can deal with a specific problem, although you may want to continue in longer, open-ended work to address long-standing emotional issues.
As we work together to achieve your goal the time period needed will become clearer.
How to choose a therapist
The determining factor is the relationship between counsellor and client. A counselling relationship has a responsibility to provide a safe, confidential space to build trust, so that a person can feel secure to explore painful and self-limiting issues.
It is very important to choose someone who is qualified.
The First Step
I recommend an evaluation session, where you will be able to talk about what is troubling you. Together we can think about how it feels to work together, arrangements can then be made to start as soon as it is convenient.
