Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counselling can offer you a warm, nonjudgmental, confidential space to allow you to regain your equilibrium after a specific loss or trauma.
Psychotherapy can offer the opportunity to delve a little deeper into why you are as you are. This can provide both a sense of relief and the opportunity to do something different.
Everyone has times in their lives when they can feel anxious, overwhelmed or simply a bit lost. Sometimes those feelings can strengthen and leave us feeling depressed, panicked or despairing. It is at those times that we can most benefit from the empathic understanding of another person. A person who can help us bear our most troubling feelings and with time allow us to discover a different perspective on life or a different way of being in the world. Paradoxically it is as at those times when we are most in need of another person's support, that it can be the hardest to reach out for it. At these times counselling can provide a valuable addition to your normal support network.
There are times when we can pinpoint the source of our distress and other times when the source of our ill ease is harder to fathom.The process of therapy can help in both these instances.
If you're unsure whether counselling is the right thing for you, please feel free to contact me for for further advice either by email or in a phone call.
In keeping with current research, I believe that the key to successful therapy is the relationship between the client and the therapist. Understanding this I recommend that we have one or two introductory sessions to see that we are the right fit before deciding on ongoing therapy.
