How Counselling Can Help
Sometimes we all need support. Sometimes our problems can seem overwhelming and without solution. Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain or making you feel uncomfortable. My aim is to offer a warm, non-judgemental space from which you can explore your issues, develop greater self-awareness and be supported in finding the best way forward to a happier and more balanced life
What To Expect in the First Session
During our first session I will be gathering information about you and your life. I will be asking you about what has brought you to therapy, your current situation and your personal history. We will discuss what your goals are for therapy and what you would like to achieve from your counselling sessions. This forms part of an assessment that helps me better understand your problems.
As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist I work with adults and adolescents with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship issues and bereavement. I am also a qualified cognitive behavioural therapist, an approach that explores the thought, feelings and behaviour that are at the root of many of life's issues. In my role as a school counsellor I have extensive experience of working with young people who are experiencing issues such as bullying, exam stress, low-self esteem, self-harm and suicidal thoughts.
Each client is unique, as is each counselling relationship and therapy is more likely to be effective when you can trust and feel comfortable with your counsellor. Please feel free to contact me and we can talk through any concerns you may have to ensure you feel comfortable sharing them with me.
As I am unable to answer the phone when I am working please contact me via email or voice mail and I will return your call, I try to do this within 24 hours.
