Why Counselling Now?
During such challenging times, it is so easy to lose your sense of self, sense of direction, lose your balance and self-control, in a state of confusion, all impacting on your confidence, motivation and self-belief, creating that negative and vicious cycle, and an overwhelming feeling of constant struggles, contributed by life events and pressures, childhood traumas, relationship breakdowns, struggling to form relationships, the impact of social media, financial difficulties, dissatisfaction in work, depressions, anxiety, bereavement and other mental health struggles.
No matter how hard you try, it’s not always apparent why you’re feeling the way you are, and you just cannot put your finger on it, at which point the counsellor will safely support you forward, by exploring side by side, gaining a deeper understanding, and work towards a healthier sense of well-being and positive mindset, to manage your life more effectively, help set new challenges and goals, and enable you to work towards your full potential.
Short Term Treatment; 4 - 10 Session - addresses recent difficulties
Long Term Treatment ; 10 Sessions + - generally more deep-seated issues
A short or long-term non-direct approach of person-centred counselling/therapy can help individuals of all ages, cultures, religions backgrounds, and different genders with a range of personal issues.
Many people find it an appealing type of therapy because it allows them to keep control over the content and work at their own pace, without the worry that they are being evaluated or assessed in any way.
It is beneficial to those who have a strong urge to explore themselves and their feelings, and for those who want to address specific psychological habits or patterns of thinking and behaviour.
Provides useful tools that are effective in treating and understanding own specific problems such as depression, anxiety, stress and grief/bereavement, or other mental health concerns.
Therapy can help people to reconnect with their inner self in order to transcend any limitations, and have a positive impact on your self-esteem, self-belief, self-reliance and self-awareness.
It enables gaining control of your self again, a greater sense of personal resources, become confident and Independent in solving your own problems.
Helps you become more aware of your own process, and learn to declutter your destructive thoughts, and replace with reframed, rationale thought process.
My philosopy and aim is to commit to providing a safe and confidential space for each individual, regardless of their differences and diversity of experience, offering a non-judgemental approach, respecting each and every individual for their uniqueness, believing in their ability to self-heal, whilst I support, guide and walk alongside you as you explore your inner world and journey of self-exploration, self-discovery, and self-awareness, where you, the client, focuses on your own experiences, to facilitate you standing on your own two feet.
