Many of us know someone who has had counselling to help them cope with a situation which is causing emotional problems, stress or upset
Counselling and talking therapy provide a time and space where you can discuss these issues with someone who is trained to listen without judging you, whilst offering support and enabling you to develop further insights into your situation.
Talking therapy is about working together to make the changes that you need to achieve the outcome that you want. I draw upon a wide variety of influences within the field of talking therapies including behavioural psychology and cognitive behavioural therapy, alongside counselling and psychotherapy approaches such as person-centred counselling and Human Givens, to help you explore your situation and feelings at your pace.
Talking with someone who is impartial and who can offer a fresh perspective can give you time to think and reflect, whilst considering choices and options to enable you to feel better and move towards where you want to be.
Counselling & Talking Therapy Sessions
Talking therapy and counselling is often suited to situations where you may be experiencing difficulties in your life such as low self esteem, anxiety, relationship difficulties or bereavement. We will discuss your situation at your initial consultation and decide on the best approach for you. Working with and resolving issues can often be achieved in a fairly short number of sessions and some issues may require longer term therapy. Often problems are resolved in short term therapy (12 sessions or less) and sessions are typically weekly, especially in the early stages.
