A counsellor provides a safe, supportive and confidential space in which to help you to look at problems you are facing, in a non-judgemental way. The work may focus on a specific problem like depression, anxiety or bereavement, or on a decision, crisis or conflict. The counsellor will help you to find ways to tackle them.
Whatever your reason for considering counselling, I will provide a safe, empathic, confidential and non-judgmental space.
Hitting a crisis point in your life can be scary. The idea of counselling can be a daunting one, often surrounded by the mystery of what to expect.
You might come to see a counsellor for a variety of reasons.
You may be facing a life-changing event that has created shock or grief.
You may be experiencing feelings of depression and isolation, low self-esteem or suffering from feelings of anxiety, without fully understanding why.
There may be events from your past that are preventing you from living your life in the way you would like to.
Equally, you may be experiencing a lack of direction, feelings of boredom or of being trapped. A significant relationship may be proving difficult for you to manage healthily. You may be aware of self-destructive patterns occurring in your life which are causing you or those around you pain.
Extreme feelings such as anger, shame, guilt, sadness or loneliness may be affecting your daily life, keeping you stuck in an uncomfortable place.
