How Counselling Helps

Counselling offers a safe and confidential space in which to explore your feelings. In fact, talking with a professional Counsellor can feel very different from confiding in family and friends. As counselling is impartial and non-judgemental, it also allows a greater sense of freedom to discuss all aspects of your difficulties. 


In my practice, I strive to be a supportive guide as you make sense of the difficult thoughts and feelings you may have.
 

By offering you a balance of support and challenge, I will help you find a new way to see yourself and the issue, or issues, you are facing.

What counselling offers: 

  • A safe impartial space to explore troublesome thoughts and feelings

  • An opportunity in which to reflect on your problems and address difficult issues

  • Gain a better understanding of yourself, and why you may tend to repeat unhelpful behaviour

  • A place to grieve, and deal with loss

 

 Providing a path for growth
