Sometimes we need to talk, but more importantly we need someone to listen properly and without judgement. You may be finding life hard at the moment or have the desire to discuss problems which are getting in the way of your happiness. This is where counselling can help, by allowing you to speak about what you are going through, and also to make sense of it.
Therapy offers you a chance to explore deeply held beliefs about yourself and your personality, and to look at how your past has helped to shape the person you are today. You can explore patterns of behaviour in your life, release true potential, find meaning and live a more satisfying and rewarding life.
Counselling can help you to:
Talk through your problems and express your feelings.
Become more aware of yourself.
Become more able to explore options and choices that are available to you.
Feel more in control of your life.
Improve your relationships.
Increase confidence and self-esteem.
Your reasons for coming to counselling may vary enormously but can include:
Relationship problems, including feelings of insecurity, jealousy, abuse, lack of intimacy, communication issues.
Feelings of isolation, loneliness, despair, emptiness.
Stress at work or home.
Loss and bereavement.
Childhood experiences including abuse and trauma.
Feelings of dissatisfaction and lack of meaning.
Feelings of guilt, shame.
Fear, anxiety, depression.
Anger and resentment.
If you haven\'t undertaken counselling before, you may be a little apprehensive, many people are. If you have any concerns, please get in touch and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
I offer a free, initial, half hour consultation to enable us to get to know each other a little, to answer any questions and talk about any concerns.
