From time to time we often feel unable to move on or shift our patterns of behaviour that start to have an affect on our own wellbeing and that of those around us. Our relationships may start to breakdown or we feel unable to be in one all together. We can be finding ourselves isolated, overwhelmed and misunderstood.
It can be hard to work through all this alone, and by being in therapy we can work together in a safe, non judgemental, confidential space where we will work toward building a genuine trusting relationship together. In this supportive, confidential atmosphere you can begin to develop your own stronger sense of self, work on your issues and build a greater sense of self worth. This will then allow you to start making the right choices which will lead to the changes you need to live a more fulfilling, authentic life.
Why do we have therapy?
Some of the reasons people come to counselling include;
- Sex or Relationship Issues
- Gay and bisexual issues or struggling to come out
- Bullying, verbal, emotional or physical
- Issues at work
- Coming to terms with loss, bereavement
- Struggling to live an authentic life
Counselling is a safe, confidential space for people to talk where they can begin to work on their issues without judgement, prejudice or interpretation. It's a place where you can develop a trusting relationship with your counsellor and talk openly about what's going on for you, and how your emotions may be affecting you at this time in your life.
I am a fully qualified Person Centred Therapist and registered member of the BACP. Being in practice for over 5 years, I have experience working with people who have come to therapy for a variety of reasons.
How does Therapy Help?
Therapy can be effective in helping you;
- Have a better understanding of yourself
- Lead to you having more peace of mind and acceptance
- Encourage you make better decisions going forward
- Help you develop new tools to cope better and to let go of unhealthy behaviour patterns
- Help you develop your skills for improving relationships with others
- Lead to a more fulfilling, authentic, happier and open life
Although I work with both men and women, my service aims to encourage men to know that there is a space where they can feel safe and supported to work through their issues. It is often a misconception that 'men don't talk about feelings', but rather that men don't know that counselling can also be beneficial space for them too.
I offer both short and long term therapy. If you would like to make an appointment to meet please get in touch.
