What is counselling?
Defining Counselling can be challenging as it is a very subjective process and is as individual as the person seeking help and support. However, a common definition is: 'the provision of professional assistance and guidance in resolving personal or psychological problems'.
Whatever difficulty you are experiencing , my aim is to offer you a place where you can be understood and heard, safe in the knowledge that your words and feelings will be treated with dignity and respect.
One of the main reasons for finding it difficult to talk about our feelings and emotions is the fear of being judged. My work doesn't involve judging you, it values your feelings, your experiences and most importantly you .
I work on the premise that we are two human beings in a room, each of us with our own knowledge and expertise.
It is my belief that the core of a therapeutic relationship is a confidential and collaborative one, where I would help you achieve increased awareness and understanding of yourself and your behaviours. I offer a relationship with the intent of alleviating internal battles, helping you realise you have choices and rekindling hope.
