What is Counselling?
How may it help you?
People sometimes have uncertainty about particular areas of their lives
and this can often be distressing. Having someone to talk to, who will listen
to you in a respectful manner, can help you achieve self-awareness and
insight into what may be troubling you. Counselling takes place in a
private and confidential setting. I am non-directive in style, as my way
of working considers you are the authority on your life, I will work with
you in a non-judgmental way, to explore solutions and the decisions you
make that will work for you.
I am down-to-earth in my approach, aiming to be as honest and open as possible,
as I believe these are necessary qualities to developing a trusting therapeutic
relationship, which is of benefit in achieving long-lasting changes for you the client.
People come to counselling for a variety of reasons, some of these might include:
• Bereavement, loss and grief
• Anxiety and Depression

• Life choices (including decision-making)
• Relationships (including family dynamics)

• Addiction, such as: alcohol, drugs, gambling, food
• Abuse (physical, sexual and emotional)
• Exploring meaning in life
• Confidence and self esteem
• Eating disorders and body image
• Sexual issues
