Counselling and Coaching

What is Counselling?
Counselling can offer a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. These can be related to both past and present life experiences. Often we feel stuck or feel limited in our own personal power to move forward and implement changes. Repeating the same patterns of behaviour that no longer serve us can feel limiting and tiring. We struggle to make senses of ourselves, relationships or situations we are in whilst coping with the demands of everyday life. Counselling can offer you time and space to gain clarity enabling you to take the time you need to build your resilience and confidence.

To enable you to feel comfortable in finding the real you, I as your counsellor aim to provide a safe and confidential space. This can provide a suitable setting to take the time to explore and reflect upon feelings you have previously ignored.

Humanistic / Integrative Counselling makes use of a mix of approaches. Each client is very unique with varying needs, therefore no one approach is suitable for everyone. As your counsellor, I will work with you to understand what is going on internally as well as the affect of outside influences. This allows your counselling sessions to treat you as a whole person made up of mind, body and spirit.

As a humanistic / integrative counsellor, I am here to listen and to build upon the quality of the therapeutic relationship between us. Within this framework I will listen with empathy and non judgement. This ensures we are working from your frame of reference during each session. Our work together will focus on your thoughts, feelings and senses.
