Counselling

Counselling can bring about deeply effective change to your life and how you think and  feel. It can be a rewarding and supportive experience.

Counselling involves listening, giving you a place to talk about what’s on your mind.

To talk in confidence and to be listened to and to feel you can share what’s bothering you is important, and can lead to change for you in many ways.

You will probably have questions that need answering before you go ahead. How does it work? How many sessions should I have?

I offer a free 15 minute telephone conversation where you can ask me initial questions. Or you can book a 30 minute face to face where you can talk about what it is that’s troubling you, this can help both of us, and for you to meet me and find out if I can help.

Talking can help you reach a better understanding of what’s on your mind, why you have certain thoughts, and how to move through them, including anxiety, self-doubt and lack of self-esteem, stress, uncertainty or feeling stuck with life’s direction.

Negative thoughts impact on our minds, causing anxiety, depression and stressful situations. Sometimes we can feel so low that we lose meaning to our lives. Change is possible through talking about what’s on your mind, understanding why you have worrying thoughts, and where they come from.

Along with counselling I also use psycho-educational coaching skills, and with your intention to find answers can enable you to reach a clearer understanding of how and why you think and feel the way you do, and how to find the resolution to heal.

Between us, you can discover new ways of thinking, and by incorporating Havening Techniques, you can quickly release persistent negative beliefs and phobias, leading to a positive future.

Integrative Counselling

Integrative counselling is based on the understanding that combining various modalities of psychotherapy can offer the best approach to meeting the specific needs of each person.

Working together with any issues you’d like to bring change to, the various possible approaches will become apparent.

In my ongoing education over many years in this field, I have become familiar with modalities that can bring positive results.

Psychodynamic Counselling

Psychodynamic therapy allows you to  talk about anything that’s on your mind to uncover patterns, thoughts or behaviour that might be contributing to your distress. It is also common to talk about your childhood and past.

We will work to explore the connections between your conscious mind and your actions. This involves examining your emotions, relationships and thought patterns.
