HOW COUNSELLING CAN HELP
Sometimes life can become difficult to cope with emotionally. We may be aware of a specific event that has triggered this such as a bereavement, health or work issues, relationships, a change in our family or financial circumstances. We may be the victim of bullying or have experienced trauma such as being involved in an accident or being the victim of abuse. Or we may have no idea why we feel the way we do - we just know that we are struggling and want to feel better!
Counselling can provide us with the tools we need to handle our emotions so they do not continue to overwhelm us. It can help us to gain a better understanding of ourselves and help us to make sense of how we are feeling enabling us to make positive change and move forward.
MY APPROACH TO COUNSELLING
As well as providing a safe space, as a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor I am able to combine a number of different psychotherapeutic methods and tailor therapy to suit your needs. My approach is open and non-judgmental, encouraging but also challenging when appropriate. It is important that you feel comfortable and able to explore your emotions freely. Sessions are mainly led by you - you decide what you want to explore and we work together at your pace.
Therapy may be short-term, mainly solution-focused where we look at developing strategies and providing the tools you need to help you handle you emotions effectively. Or it can be more in-depth, longer-term therapy where we explore your past to identify the root causes of your current emotional issues. This can give you a much greater understanding of yourself and help you to make sense of how you are feeling, enabling you to have more control of your emotions and make the positive changes you need to feel better.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Contacting a Counsellor when you find yourself struggling emotionally is a very positive step - but one that can be quite daunting, especially if you are not really sure what to expect.
During the first session, as well as gaining an understanding of the reasons why you want to engage in therapy and what you would like to achieve. we can also make sure that the therapy I offer is right for you and that you are comfortable working with me. There is a small amount of paperwork to complete then the remainder of the session and subsequent sessions are for you to talk about the issues that have brought you to counselling and for us to work through them together.
HOW MANY SESSIONS
The number of sessions required will depend on the nature of the issues you wish to address and the outcome you are looking for. However, during the first appointment I will give you an indication of the number which might be required and we will review this periodically during future sessions.
