Counselling is a talking therapy that provides you with a safe space to talk, explore, heal and grow. Psychological problems are common, with about half the UK population experiencing difficulties at some point. Often individuals benefit from seeking professional help.
Typical presenting issues include:
Anxiety and depression
Stuckness and lack of meaning
Personal development and self esteem concerns
Life stages and crises
Relationship and psychosexual issues
Counselling provides an opportunity to develop a greater understanding and clarity of your difficulties. I assist you in exploring your wounds, traumas, vulnerabilities and insecurities, identifying options for improving your life and support you in implementing the changes you decide to make.
What to expect in a session
Our first session together is an assessment to find out about the issues you would like to explore, something of your personal history and for both of us to see if we can work together. You are under no obligation to continue beyond the first appointment. If you decide to go ahead we will agree an informal contract, which explains the timings of sessions and what happens in the event of cancellations or missed time.
