How it works
We sit in a relaxed, confidential, safe and comfortable room together and talk and explore; it’s as simple as that. You are in control of what areas you want to talk about and explore. Sometimes it is painful and difficult but at others it’s liberating, enlightening and life-changing! Honesty, transparency and open-ness between the client and therapist are vital ingredients to its success. My experience and skill will help us to shed light on unhelpful and helpful behaviour patterns and find ways together to negotiate a clear path. Through the counselling, your self-awareness will grow and develop and empower you to move forward with your life. The quality of the relationship between therapist and client is absolutely vital and key to the success of the process and experience.
Counselling is not a quick fix nor, unfortunately, a magic wand! Counselling is not about giving advice. The counsellor encourages you to dig deep inside yourself to find the solution to your own problems. You know what is best for you ultimately. The counsellor might offer a different perspective on the problem, or way of looking at it, but the choice to act or not act, change or not change, is entirely your own.
