What Counselling can offer

Counselling can help you to explore in a safe and non-judgemental environment.  During your sessions you will have time for self-discovery, you may have many epiphany moments when you will begin to recognise ways of being that no longer serve a purpose –  new understanding creating new awareness, replacing old behaviours with better and more appropriate strategies. The therapeutic process will enable you to reconnect to yourself more fully, physically, mentally and emotionally, and connect more fully with those around you and the things you truly care about. Many people who have been in counselling have a shared experience which ripples into life outside the therapy room bringing more clarity, balance and compassion, and promoting your feeling of wellness….

Do you identify with any of the following?

  • Convincing yourself you are okay but deep down you are desperate for help
  • Avoiding doing the things you would like to do, or used to do
  • You seem to repeat unhealthy relationships

“beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that sees the important stuff and counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will…” quote from the film Hope Floats

I work with you in a person-centered way and use an integrative approach in order to help you achieve your aims.
