What is counselling?

Counselling is not about judging or blaming, offering advice or making new friends. Instead, I see my role as a professional one that supports you as we work together to help you make more sense of things. This may include exploring how your past may be affecting your present; looking at how your current thought processes may be influencing your feelings and behaviours; or considering alternative perspectives.

How can counselling help?

A counselling environment gives you the time and space to express yourself freely to someone impartial, without the worry of being judged or the intrusion of someone else's opinion, enabling the healing process to begin. To be really listened to, understood and valued for the unique person that you are can be a powerful experience.

We will work together to explore your concerns so that you can gain a better understanding of yourself through self-reflection, helping you to discover your own solutions to either resolve or cope better with issues. It may also be beneficial to incorporate learning some new tools to help manage certain areas of concern.

I believe that we all have that innate drive to become who we were meant to be and also that we have the inner resources needed to get there, but we often lose sight of this through life's experiences and social conditioning. Working with a counsellor can help you re-discover your true self, helping you grow as a person and to feel more empowered and self-aware.
