About me

If you choose to come to me for counselling you will find it a safe place to explain and explore what is bothering you. In your own words and only as quickly as you are comfortable, I will encourage you to help me understand what is troubling you including how it is affecting your feelings and emotions. I will be non-judgmental while helping you define and clarify why your problem is troubling you. You will also find me willing to help you say what you cannot say on your own. You can trust me to keep what we talk about confidential and not share it with anyone else in your life. You will find me honest, caring and sensitive. You will feel that your worth and value as an individual person is respected. You and I will work together, discussing and weighing up possible solutions to the problems that brought you to counselling. You will feel supported, empowered and motivated in your journey to resolve the problems that are disturbing you.

The answers to your problems may come in the form of a new understanding or perspective. You may find some new way to personally accept an answer to the problem that previously you had discounted. You may be able to decide on a course of action to change the situation that is causing you concern. Your counselling may help you acquire new life skills that allow you to more effectively deal with the problem should it arise again in the future. You could find a new appreciation for how you really feel about a particular issue. In short, you may learn a different way to see the world so that your problems are more easily resolved. You also may find the answer to your difficulties is in widening your social circle. You may feel energised and wanting to be around other people and their company more than you have in the past. In whatever form the answers to your problems come, in general you will find you are feeling differently and as a result can move forward once again in your life.
