How Can Counselling Help?

I believe that the unique relationship that can be created between a counsellor and a client is one of the most fundamental elements of successful counselling. I work to build a safe space where I don’t judge or try to ‘fix’ your problems with advice, but rather listen with attention, giving you support and time to explore your issues, thoughts and feelings. 

  

Feeling understood, heard, and accepted ‘just as you are’ can be incredibly empowering, and pave the way for real change and transformation.  

  

I may offer ways to work through certain feelings or support you to make more sense of why you are feeling the way you are, but I believe strongly that making true and lasting change comes when we can find our own answers, rather than asking for instruction from others.  

  

I may suggest and use different approaches depending on what you hope to achieve from counselling. For example, for issues around anxiety, CBT approaches (which look at the connection between our thoughts, feelings and behaviour) can be very effective. However, rather than being prescriptive, I aim to support you towards a greater sense of self awareness, so that you then have the tools to move forward in your life, in a more positive way.  

Whilst I may not give advice, my role is not a passive one. Ultimately, my experience and training can help you to feel more confident in yourself.
