Counselling gives you space for self-reflection and self-exploration; you can work on improving your confidence and exploring your own worth and self-respect.
Through exploring parts of ourselves in a receptive and non-judgemental space we can then learn to accept ourselves and feel a greater sense of inner peace.
We can explore what gives us meaning and purpose when we are feeling lost and without hope.
How can counselling help?
Counselling gives you space to tell your story in an authentic way.
I will listen to you, really listen.
I can provide a space that feels safe, warm and welcoming. A space where you can express your true feelings and emotions and give yourself permission to feel just how you feel – right now. You can gain greater understanding and greater insight into yourself.
I believe in learning to look inwards and to feel a sense of connection to our emotions and feelings. It is through this process that our underlying issues can surface, allowing us to safely process these and move on in our lives.
I know from both personal experience and from the hundreds of clients I have worked with, that counselling can have such a positive impact upon someones life.
I came to counselling through my own personal therapy journey and experiencing first-hand the healing impact that it can have. I now want to share this with others.
