Ian Roberts MA, UKCP, MBACP
I offer one to one therapeutic counselling in confidence and in a safe space. The shape this takes will be led by what you want to talk about. It is a collaborative and cooperative process. The work happens in what arises and how we unfold this, together.
Understanding everyday experiences is central to this work. Life has many joys, mysteries, boring bits and dilemmas. Much of this is to be celebrated but we can take a closer look at the things that have become more difficult or just don’t suit you anymore. We can work on how a more fulfilled life can be lived.
This can involve exploring your views and responses to situations, your choices and possibilities for the future. I believe this will place you in a much better position to have an understanding of your everyday life and grow in a way that suits you.
How we responded to past events have a habit of affecting how we understand our present experiences and how we see the future. While it is important to understand past events, I believe in being in the ‘here and now’. This means not being a prisoner to the past and being able to respond differently; understand who you are differently as you look towards the future and to greater wellbeing.
The length of time we work together can be short or long term and can be reviewed as the work progresses.
