Are you feeling stressed, stuck, overwhelmed, angry or lost?
Counselling can help.
Sometimes we find it difficult to cope with what is going on in our lives.
Whilst most of the time we are able to manage, sometimes life's challenges exceed our coping strategies and we can end up feeling stressed, stuck, lost, overwhelmed or angry.
Counselling is a talking therapy that helps you discuss your problems and how you feel in a safe, non-judgemental space. It can also help you gain insight into your thoughts, emotions and behaviours so that you can look to the future with hope and joy.
It's time to take back control and be the driving force of your life going forward.

Common questions I get around counselling...

Just because it didn’t work before doesn’t mean that counselling will not work now. It’s possible that there was a poor match between yourself and the counsellor or that you were not in the right place to benefit from counselling. Counselling can help lots of people in a variety of situations. Whether it is likely to work for you or not depends on a variety of factors so we won't know until we've had chance to talk and explore your situation carefully.
This is why we have an initial call and in that call I will give you my honest opinion on if I think I can help you.
There are three different types of counselling so it can be a bit confusing when deciding which type of counselling or therapy that would benefit you the most. They all include talking through your problems but differ in their approach.
I use an integrative approach, as no one theory alone holds all the answers. By using an integrative approach it allows more flexibility and is focused on the the individual as a whole and adapted to your needs.
The time it takes for you to see results is a difficult question to answer. It varies depending on the reason that counselling was started and the individual.
Some people say that after just one session they are already starting to feel better and they’ve started to see positive change. I usually find that three or more sessions are needed to start seeing signs that counselling is helping.
Sessions are normally weekly initially, and then dialled back to once every two weeks for as long as you need them.
I don't often see people for single or adhoc sessions as this is unlikely to develop lasting change.
