FAQ - Counselling

Simply what is counselling?
Counselling is about you and I working together.

Learn how to deal with anger, guilt & forgiveness. When you are talking freely, and I am listening attentively, an awareness of how you relate to yourself, other people and situations is developed by both of us. By exploring how you have dealt with the past, directly relates to the way you think now.

Sometimes that way of thinking isn’t helpful to you. It has become a habit or a pattern affecting your belief about yourself and your life. I can help you to break the unhelpful thinking habit and build a new more productive way to think.

To encourage better ways for you to cope with the difficulties you are experiencing.

I will not advise you or tell you what to do but I will help you to use your own ability to enable you to make those positive changes you need for a better future.

When you work with me you will develop understanding and more and more skills to help yourself as time goes on.

I offer a relaxed yet professional approach where you will feel understood and supported. Our sessions are for one hour, usually on a weekly basis.

There is no limit to the amount of sessions and a regular review of how you are progressing is provided.
