Counselling is a process that uses the safety of a special kind of relationship to enable people to reach more of their own personal resources to deal with life. Counselling helps people take charge of their lives and honestly work through areas of relationships or behaviours that cause pain or control us. Everyone possesses an ability to become more self aware and to find solutions to their own problems. However there are times when we need support to achieve this.
By working with individuals in a supportive way, together we can create a unique opportunity to move, appropriately, towards a more fulfilling life. Counselling offers a way for you to look at and work through issues that trouble you in life. Counselling creates a safe space to explore difficult emotions and experiences so you can re-imagine your life and future in more fulfilling ways. It can be difficult to let go of old behaviours, patterns and ways of thinking. Counselling offers a space that is non-threatening and non-judgmental where you will be valued and given space to find new ways of living.
Counselling is not about being told how to live, counselling is about choosing to enter into a process that is aimed at helping you get the most from life, being free from emotional pain and learning to live the best life you can with what you have. I work as an integrative counsellor, which means I try and understand people from a variety of perspectives. Sometimes the past impacts our present experience of life, alongside our current relationships and situations. Through exploring your issues with me, we can gain insight into how our past has shaped us and how our current circumstances can be lived in more fruitful ways; this creates a bespoke service that is driven by you. Within this I am always seeking the best possible ways of helping people, forming a creative space in which the sense of self can be seen with empathy and individuals can find ways to understand themselves better and develop new ways that bring about change.
