One to One Counselling
Why have counselling?
Whatever the obstacles are between you and a better quality of life, counselling can help you overcome them.
Counselling can help you gain an in-depth understanding of yourself, your thinking styles and your behaviour.
If you are wondering if counselling would be beneficial for you, please email or text me for a free 20 minute telephone consultation where I will be able to answer all your questions.
This is also a good opportunity for you to evaluate if I am a suitable Counsellor for your individual needs

The Counselling Process
Through the counselling process, we go on what I consider to be, a psychological journey together. You are always in control. You are the leader of the journey.
I always go at your pace, never rushing you, and I only go to the places you feel you’re ready to take me. I’m not going to force you up a hill you don’t have the energy to climb; I always look to you for the direction.
For example, even if there is a fork in your chosen path, and you are uncertain of which path to take, I help you weigh up and look at your options, but the decision of the best way forward always lies within you.
Although I have never been on your journey before I know what tools I need to bring with me in order to keep you in a psychologically safe place, and this is a place, where you ultimately, have complete control. The journey is an inward one, and guides you on a path of self-discovery, finding the “real you”.
As we work together I help you to have self-awareness, through self-understanding. Sometimes I may suggest books for you to read so I can provide you with a deeper understanding of a topic (relevant to any difficulties you may be experiencing) I may also give you work to take home such as thought records if we both feel this is something that would help you.
