Professional therapy for personal growth, healing and discovery from within
What is Counselling?
Counselling is a confidential talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their concerns in a confidential safe environment. Counselling aims to help people overcome fears or issues that may be causing distress, with a non-judgemental professional approach. Talking through problems can allow time and space to process situations/relationships improving how these are handled or reacted to. A contained healthy space to work through such issues can really help to make sense of your thoughts and feelings. This can often involve talking about difficult or painful feelings and experiences, in order to face up to problems you may be encountering. Counselling can mean different things to different people, it is a very individual process, in general it is a process people undertake when they want to change something in their lives or explore elements of their lives in more depth.
Counselling is a confidential service, unless I have cause to believe that you are at serious risk/harm to yourself or others, strict confidentially will be adhered to. We will discuss and contract confidentially on our first session. Counselling is a non directive therapy therefore a counsellor will never tell you what to do, instead they will encourage you to talk, listen without judgement to explore and uncover any root causes of your issues in order to identify specific thinking or behavioural patterns.

“When a person realizes he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, "Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it's like to be me”
