Gurpreet Singh, MBACP (Accred)
Do I work with Individuals or Couples?
I work with individuals and couples but not both at the same time. If I am seeing you as an individual then I cannot expand the service to include your partner. And vice versa.
Is something worrying you?
Life can feel unmanageable at times. Emotions can become overwhelming and relationships can feel like hard work. Perhaps life simply lacks clarity.
I will help you explore whatever is troubling you. I help you understand your experience, develop coping strategies and come up with your own solutions on how to deal with them. And if it is clarity that you seek then I can also help you get that.
My style of working?
The needs of every person and every couple are unique and different. So although my style is integrative, it is usually adapted to meet client needs. I will use a style that will suit the issues you raise and orient myself around your own preferred style of working. The pace of our work will be set by you and your emotional readiness for change.
Sometimes the presenting issue are different from where the real struggle is. We may have to adapt what we do based on what we uncover. Any change in direction is discussed with you and is always done with your knowledge. I regularly conduct reviews to ensure that we remain on target for what you want from the sessions.
How many sessions?
This is dependent on issues you bring, your readiness for exploration and your needs as a person. You can come to the first session simply to explore if we can work together or it is entirely possible that a single session is all you need. In all cases, we set a review at a maximum of 6 weeks to ensure that the work we are doing is suitable to your needs.
What you can expect?
You can expect a professional, confidential, non-judgemental and safe environment in which to explore your feelings and your issues. As the sessions progress your awareness around your behaviour will increase, and you will gain insight. This by itself can often drive change. Sometimes, I ask my clients to do exercises at home. This is optional and is designed to assist in the work we are doing. They help us understand patterns of behaviour and increase your awareness which will in turn assist in instigating the change you might be seeking.
What kind of issues do I work with?
I work with anxiety, anger, relationship issues, couple issues, drug and alcohol addiction, internet addiction, sex addiction, self-esteem and self-worth, bereavement and various other issues. Often these are interlinked in my experience.
