What is counselling?

Going to counselling, especially for the first time, can be a daunting experience for many. Taking that first step is a big achievement in itself and I personally believe that it is a courageous thing to be able to admit to yourself that some extra support maybe needed.

By taking that step to speak to a Counsellor, you give yourself the opportunity for personal growth and understanding of self, by us working together to find the best way forward for you.

I offer a professional counselling service by aiming to provide a warm, supportive and confidential space, enabling you to take that time for yourself to explore any concerns at your own pace and to give you the chance to express yourself freely without the worry of being judged.

How can counselling help?

Counselling can help you gain a better understanding of yourself by reflecting on how past experiences have shaped your beliefs about yourself and others around you and how this might be impacting on your life now.  This in itself can also bring an increased sense of self-awareness.  This type of work is often carried out over a longer time period to allow for deeper exploration.  Short term counselling can also help by working with a more focused approach.

I see counselling as a journey of self-discovery and personal growth;

a journey that I walk alongside you with.
