What is counselling?
Counselling provides a confidential, safe and supportive environment where you can talk through any issues causing difficulties or concern. It is time set aside each week to talk about what you are experiencing and might include exploring life events (past and present), feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. It can help you to understand aspects of your life which have been causing you problems. The understanding that you gain may lead to a decision to make some changes in your life. These changes may only be small but could have a significant impact on your happiness and well being.
Is counselling right for me?
People consider coming to counselling for many different reasons. It can help with anxiety, depression, relationships, bullying, past issues, abuse, bereavement, trauma, low self esteem, addictive behaviour, unwanted thoughts, panic attacks and much more. Sometimes people don’t know why they are feeling the way they do, they simply know they don’t feel right. Coming to therapy can help you clarify what is going on and help you find greater peace of mind. Counselling also provides a form of support during a difficult period, or following a traumatic event or experience.
How frequent are sessions and how long do they last?
My sessions usually take place weekly and last for 50 minutes.
How many sessions will I need?
This depends entirely on yourself and the issues you bring to counselling. Some people come for just a few sessions and feel better quite quickly and ready to finish, whilst others may come for significantly longer.
