What is Counselling?

Counselling provides you with an opportunity to talk about and express your feelings and emotions associated with your situation with a professional counsellor who will empathise and support you without judgement throughout the process.

Each counselling session is client led which means we work together with whatever issue or concern you bring to the session.

During sessions you will be encouraged to talk about your situation; we will paraphrase and reflect back to you what you have said. This helps you to actually “hear what you are saying” it also helps us to clarify we have heard and understood what you have said.

At times it may be beneficial to introduce techniques such as practical exercises, visualisation and creativity into the sessions.

Together we will explore your reactions to your issues and concerns and how they affect you in the “here and now.”

Additionally, we will work together helping you to identify your values and beliefs, strengths and qualities, thus increasing your awareness of how they fuse together, helping you to make sense of your experience, resolve difficulties and work towards a more fulfilling life.

Ultimately, we work with you to establish the best possible outcome for you and your situation and providing you engage in the counselling process we guarantee positive change will occur.
