Why come to counselling?
In any given period, 1 out of 4 people experiences some kind of mental health issue, with depression and anxiety being the most common.
You may not be able to pinpoint or name your problem clearly, but you may be aware of feeling unhappy, confused or have a sense of lack of direction or purpose in areas of your life. Perhaps you feel locked into repeating negative and destructive behaviour patterns. Person Centred Therapy gives you the space to explore these issues, reflect on how you respond to life events and look at the way you relate to yourself and others. I will listen and help you understand how past experiences, played out in the here and now, shape your life today.
Therapy provides a safe and supportive space, in which to explore and work through difficulties that might be troubling you. This is provided in an environment of strict confidentiality and empathic listening. By understanding more about yourself and developing a greater self-awareness it may be possible for you to find different ways of coping with painful situations and feelings. This in turn may help you to have more choices and make changes in your life.
There is no set number of sessions. However, weekly session over a minimum of 6 weeks is considered the norm. We can then review how counselling is going and decide from thereon.
In order to get the most out of the counselling, consistency is key.
What to expect?
