Counselling is a talking therapy that involves me listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with your emotional issues. Sometimes the term “counselling” is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a type of therapy in its own right.  I will help you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. The benefits of Counselling include:

  • improved communication and interpersonal skills
  • greater self-acceptance and self-esteem
  • ability to change self-defeating behaviours/habits
  • better expression and management of emotions, including anger
  • relief from depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions
  • increased confidence and decision-making skills
  • ability to manage stress effectively
  • improved problem-solving and conflict resolution abilities
  • greater sense of self and purpose
  • recognition of distorted thinking

I use a form of Counselling named Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT),  a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave, which I use for treating Anxiety, Depression,  mental and physical health problems to help you reach your full potential and become your true self.

When you attend a Counselling session with me you’ll be encouraged to bring your own issues to the session – the Counselling is led by you and not directed by me. I will help you to explore your own issues, feelings, beliefs, behaviour, and worldview, so you can become more self-aware and achieve greater independence. I will help you to realise what resources and support are available to you that you can use to work through your own issues, build your self-confidence and appreciate that you always have options. I will treat you as the expert on yourself, as no-one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you.

I will not judge you, no matter what you bring to the session. This helps build a trustworthy relationship in which you can feel free and supported to disclose whatever is troubling you. Eventually it will lead you to discover your own abilities and autonomy, so that you can cope with current and future problems.
