When the relationship is right, counselling can bring about real, lasting change in each and every aspect of your life.
An opportunity for two people to contemplate, to understand mental well-being; how you think, how you feel and how you relate to yourself and others in the world.
Experienced in working therapeutically with a wide range of difficulties including (but not limited to):
low mood and depression.
Anxiety, worry and panic.
Challenging life transitions
Low self-esteem and self-confidence
Experiences of abuse.
*Reasons for accessing counselling will be specific to the individual.
Through careful and considered thought, talking therapy can help individuals to consider why things are difficult and provide choice in how to overcome challenges to mental health and well-being.
The first session.
The first session is primarily an information-gathering session for both of us. I ask a selection of questions about what has motivated you to access counselling, how you make sense of it, and what you might wish to change. You are given opportunity to ask me questions if you choose.
This first meeting is especially important because it provides opportunity for you to get to know me and to get a sense for what it might be like to work with me in counselling. There is no obligation to commit to any further sessions at this stage.
Counselling is more effective when there is a commitment to attend regular sessions. If you decide you would like to continue counselling, we will consider whether short term (usually six sessions) or long term counselling fits for you.
You will be given a regular 50-minute counselling appointment at the same time each week/fortnight. This slot will usually be kept for you until you decide that you no longer need or want to come.
