Welcome, It can be difficult to talk to those close to you as they often, understandably, struggle to remain impartial. Sometimes professional support is needed so that you can express yourself to someone who has no vested interest in you being any particular way and who will not be shocked, overwhelmed or judgemental about what you have to say. It can be surprising how valuable it can be to have a space where you can be helped to explore for yourself what your own responses, perceptions and feelings are, to find fresh and unimagined ways of looking at problematic emotions, inner blocks, relationship difficulties & anxious situations.
I believe there is no reason for anyone to continue to feel sad, anxious or remain in a difficult situation. As a person who developed epilepsy as an adult, I had to learn how to turn a disability into an advantage and how to handle stress and anxiety. I also believe that negative situations can be used as a catalyst to push you forward and can even motivate you toward achieving the change you desire. I'm committed to offering the type of counselling I'd want for someone I love. My approach:
A cool, judgemental attitude is something you’ll never get from me.
If you want a counsellor who sits back saying “tell me more about this…….” or "Uh huh” this is not me
If you want a highly intellectual type of analyst who spends multiple sessions analysing dream’s then I am not the right person for you.
I am an active counsellor who gets involved in therapy. One who gives advice, homework, reviews and feedback on progress. I will answer most questions as I believe counselling is a collaborative process resulting in change.
Many people have excellent insights into their issues yet are still stuck, people like this need a powerful psychological jump start to help them move forward. Our work together will promote this movement, counseling is not a forever process. You should feel and see change happening. We regularly monitor our work, review process and you decide when you have reached the target.
The first session is an opportunity for us to meet and get to know each other. It will be a space for you to ask any questions you may have about me or the counselling process and to talk about what brings you to counselling.
Within a safe environment, you will be encouraged to take risks, try new things, and practice the change you hope to achieve. All aspects of the counselling process are designed to help you experience real behavioral change and eliminate the problems that add to stress and impede healthy relationships.
