Paul Collison MBACP, DIP - Individual & Couples Counsellor in Wokingham
Room #1 Wokingham Therapy Clinic
49 Denmark Street
When sitting with Individual clients I acknowledge the healing influence when we take time out of our busy lives to hear our own voices communicate our issues and concerns . I believe that this is helped along by the relationship between counsellor and client. My aim is to provide a safe, confidential and judgement-free environment where you can explore and talk about your issues.
I have a lot of experience working with a wide range of issues, especially around stress, anxiety and negative thinking. In a counselling session I will explore what might be causing this. I work with what negative dialogue might be going on within a persons mind. This negative dialogue can be horrible to live with and stop a person living their life to the full.
I believe that Once we begin to have a healthy relationship with ourselves, we have a much healthier foundation for everything else in life.
Do you find yourself in Repetitive fights or Negative cycles in your relationship? is there Communication difficulties, Struggles with Intimacy, sexual difficulties or Infidelity?I believe healing begins in a relationship with a third party is in the room, helping the couple hear each others true wants and needs. when couples are in a challenging relationship it can seem difficult to actually hear each other through the emotions that might be involved. My job as a couples counsellor is to help couples find their communication again without the distortion of angry emotions.
I have experience working with 12-25 year olds, some of the issues I support, help and heal are, Anger, Aggression, Rage, Problems at school, low confidence, low self-worth, Body Image, bullying, feelings of wanting to harm, Feeling alone in the world and isolation and many more. When sitting with young clients I acknowledge how threatening it might first feel sitting with an adult. My aim is to help the young person feel comfortable sitting with me, I feel the worst thing to do when sitting with a young person is to sit in silence, my job is to help build the trust and therapeutic connection. I seem to have a natural ability to connect with a young person, which helps them open up and feel safe doing so.
