We’ve all heard the saying ‘’ life’s ups and downs’’. It’s what makes us human but sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by situations and this can have a negative impact on our lives. It takes courage to ask for help especially from someone you don’t know.
Counselling offers the chance to share those concerns that have left you feeling stuck and confused about what to do next. This gives you the freedom to be yourself in a safe and confidential place and not be judged. I am trained as an integrative counsellor this means that I can tailor my approach to your specific needs.
It’s important to choose a therapist you feel comfortable working with, so I offer an initial 30 minute session to help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your reasons for coming, the outcomes you’re hoping to achieve and any questions you have. The sessions are your time, that could be around a particular goal you have or to look deeper into your situation. The choice is always yours.
