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 sense 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 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 effect 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.

Online Counselling: Is life busy balancing work and home life?
Online therapy offers an alternative to face-to-face counselling in your own private space. Online appointments can offer a greater degree of flexibility and reduce the time you need to spend travelling to and from appointments. To work safely online please ensure you have a good quality internet connection. The privacy and confidentiality of your session are very important so please ensure you are able to access a safe space where you will not get disturbed or interrupted.

Not sure whether you need Counselling or Coaching?
Coaching sessions can focus on the here and now. We can look at how you think and feel and what changes you may like to consider. These could be to your current mindset, lifestyle or daily routine, helping you to live a full and enriched life. This could help you create lasting change, build resilience and create effective coping mechanisms for any future challenges.

Coaching can provide you with practical tools, ideas and tips to help you move towards being the best version of yourself. Coaching can explore your daily routines including eating habits, exercise routines and helpful/unhelpful thinking patterns.

Counselling sessions can focus on common life problems as well as previous unexplored feelings from your past. Counselling can offer the right time and space to focus on more difficult feelings both past and present. The right counsellor and therapeutic setting can offer you the time and space you need to reflect and work on difficult feelings and emotions.
