About Counselling

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change”

Carl Rogers

Often, when individuals are struggling with feelings of distress, anxiety and/or dissatisfaction they can feel isolated or find it difficult to communicate their feelings to their loved ones. It is therefore sometimes easier to talk about personal, family or relationship issues with a person who is independent of friends and family.

Therapy is time set aside by you and the therapist to look at what has brought you to therapy. This might include talking about life events (past and present), feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour.

I am a person-centred practitioner. This means that I work with the uniqueness of each individual client and endeavor to offer a relationship in which you feel heard, accepted, safe and valued. When you come and see me you will not be judged or criticised. We will work together to better understand yourself and your difficulties, exploring things at your pace and with the utmost respect for your privacy and confidentiality.

We all deserve to feel confident, secure and valued. I do believe that things can get better and will work with you to make positive changes in your life.

I offer 50 minute sessions, usually meeting once a week; however both the length and frequency of sessions is negotiable depending on what feels appropriate to you. Talking about things can take time and the number of sessions I offer is not limited. We will have regular reviews to ensure that the counselling is still helpful and meeting your needs and you can terminate the counselling at any time.
