Is counselling for you?
Sometimes we have periods in our lives where we face situations that overwhelm us, or that we feel we cannot cope with on our own. You may have found your way here because you are going through difficult personal issues and need to try and move forward. Maybe relationships with your family, partner, friends or colleagues aren’t working but you’re not sure why and want to look at this. You may be struggling to cope with some major trauma, feel something that happened in your past is still affecting you or may be experiencing depression, anxiety or negative emotions, either short term or even for as long as you can remember. You may be feeling vulnerable and have lost your sense of self-belief and confidence.
What is counselling?
Counselling offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things.
How will counselling make me feel?
Counselling is a very personal process. Sometimes it is necessary to talk about painful feelings or difficult decisions, so you may go through a period of feeling worse than when you started. However, counselling should enable you to feel better in the long-run.
If you do experience a period of feeling worse, talk to me about it to ensure you get the best out of your counselling.
Will I feel better straight away?
Usually it will take a few counselling sessions before counselling starts to make a difference.
Is all counselling the same?
No. There are different methods and approaches to counselling and I will be happy to talk to you about my particular method and approach.
What types of counselling are there?
There are many different types of counselling available. However, in general, research shows that the relationship with your Counsellor is more important than the method they use.
