Counselling is a talking therapy that allows people to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and safe environment. Generally, counselling is a process that people look to engage in when they either want to, change something within their lives, explore their thoughts and feelings in greater depth, or to work through specific problems or issues that are causing distress.
My experience has proven that when we have the time to explore our thoughts, feelings, and our reactions to difficult experiences, in the safe and confidential environment that counselling offers, this can lead to a greater understanding of ourselves and an improved sense of well-being.
Counselling can help with most life issues, such as:
A counsellor is not someone to offer advice or provide solutions to any difficulties that you may be experiencing. Instead they will encourage you to talk about your issues so that you can feel heard, understood and accepted. They will work with you, helping you to gain your own insight and understanding of your problems, whilst supporting you in finding the solutions that will help you to resolve the issues impacting your life.
Whatever has lead you to consider counselling, the idea of contacting a counsellor can be daunting, or even scary, as you may not know what to expect, and it is common to feel nervous about taking the next step. Whilst you may find it difficult to initially discuss the issues causing you distress, please know that within a counselling environment there is no judgement, no right or wrong, and that this is a space for you to safely explore the issues affecting your life and your happiness.
Please do feel free to call or email me if you would like to discuss any questions or concerns that you have about counselling.
