Counselling can be the opportunity to think the unthinkable and speak the unspeakable without the fear of what others might think.
The aim of counselling is to give you the space to explore your feelings and concerns in a safe environment; discover what your core issues might be and clarify ways of resolving these and moving towards a greater sense of well-being.
Counselling can offer the chance to explore your present and past experiences and how they may be affecting your life now. Although you can't change what has past, reflecting on your issues and feelings can enable you to discover recurring life patterns and what is behind them.
How does it work?
Counselling is a two way, collaborative process that involves the development of a unique, confidential relationship that enables you to arrive at your own informed decisions and find your own answers.
Most of us experience emotional distress or difficulties at some time in our lives, and may find it hard to cope. Making the decision to see a counsellor can help you to assess the situation, clarify your situation so as to face your difficulty with less anxiety and tension.
How can it help me?
Change in any form can be stressful such as a bereavement or job loss, and you may also need to find ways of adjusting to it. Alternatively, you may have reached a stage where you want to make a change in your life and need to discover how you can bring those about. It is often easier seeing someone outside your close circle of friends and family, without the fear of being judged.
It is important therefore, to chose a counsellor that you feel comfortable with. I believe the nature of the therapeutic relationship is the most important factor enabling progress and healing, so I always offer my clients a free initial 20 minute consultation on the phone prior to therapy to give you the opportunity to decide for yourself. Sessions can be arranged at my clinic in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire; or via skype, Facetime or on the telephone.
