What is Counselling?
To answer this question, I'd like you to take a moment to look at the picture on the homepage of this website. what do you see? Is she surrendering? Rejoicing? Stretching?
What do you 'make it mean'?
That's a key issue in counselling - our perspective, past experiences, current mindset, feelings, and emotions can all affect how we see something. I've noticed that many counselling websites use images of obviously distressed people but that's not my approach. I believe counselling is about hope, not despair.
During our sessions, I will give you a deeper understanding of your own thought processes and how they can leave you feeling bad. I will help you to shift your perspective and see the things that bother you in a new light. Finally, I will provide you with a mental toolkit so you can continue making progress even after your therapy ends. Doesn't that sound empowering?
Counselling is a safe place for you to discuss any issues you feel are making your life uncomfortable, unmanageable or causing you distress.
Counselling is your time to think only of yourself without being afraid you will judged or ridiculed for the thoughts and feelings you have.
Integrative counselling allows me to utilise several different models to assist you in working through those problems. Most importantly you, the client, have control over what methods we will use, what you choose to discuss and in what depth: counselling is client-led.
Counselling can be a challenging and at times difficult process, some sessions may raise unfamiliar feelings. We can discuss this further in our sessions , the more honest and open our sessions are the better as this is when you will be able to gain the most from the therapy.
