WHAT IS COUNSELLING?
Counselling is a way of exploring difficulties in your life with someone who is professionally trained and qualified, someone who has the time to listen and is not involved, so can be impartial and objective. It provides the client with a space to speak freely without judgment, criticism or direction.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN A COUNSELLING SESSION?
Sessions are confidential and last 50 minutes. It is your time and space to share/explore whatever you desire at your own pace. I will not provide you with any advice or make decisions for you, but I will be supportive and non-judgmental. I will support you in the decisions you make - no matter how long this takes.
WHAT BENEFITS CAN I EXPECT FROM WORKING WITH A COUNSELLOR?
Talking to someone you learn to trust can be very useful in helping you to understand your feelings more clearly. The week between appointments can be used to process your thoughts and feelings and will enable you to make decisions and see things from a clearer perspective.
WHAT KIND OF ISSUES CAN BE EXPLORED IN THERAPY?
Clients come to counselling for a variety of reasons. Some people choose counselling to address a major issue in their life and others want to gain awareness about some aspect of themselves that they feel is affecting their present lives. Mostly clients are ordinary people struggling with common day issues. Nothing is too big or too small to bring to a session.
HOW MANY SESSIONS SHOULD I HAVE?
There is no limit to sessions. It is completely your choice. I believe it is down to the individual to choose what is right for them.
