You may be wondering if counselling can help you with a difficulty you are facing right now. You might find yourself repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour, or a past experience has had an impact on your life and the time as come to make sense of them. Maybe you would like to take some time to get to know yourself. There are many different reasons which bring us to counselling and sometimes we aren’t sure what they are.
We all have times in our lives when we are struggling and need some extra help and support. Counselling can be an effective to help overcome overwhelming problems and difficult feelings. Evidence shows that counselling can improve an array of difficulties such as stress, anxiety, depression or an eating disorder.
Counselling can also help with a difficult life event such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress, and many more.
I offer a Person Centred Approach, this is where I truly believe that you are the expert in your own life. I am here for you, I will walk with you in your counselling journey. I am committed to understanding you, accepting you and helping you find your way.
Whatever the reason for you coming to counselling, I am happy to work to your needs. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
I provide counselling and psychotherapy via secure video conferencing to your home, office or even your car, as long as it is parked safely. The only things you need are a private space, a good internet connection and a device.
Online therapy has gained popularity over the past few years and can be beneficial in many ways:
- You can have therapy anywhere that is comfortable and convenient for you
- You have a greater choice of therapists than if you were restricted by location
- Having fewer visual distractions often encourages focus and concentration
- You may find that you are more comfortable online or that it is easier to talk
- You can choose a therapist outside of your local or professional community
- I am able to provide continuous support even when one of us is travelling
- I can be more flexible with scheduling than I can for my practice in person
Research consistently shows that online therapy is as effective as in person therapy. I regularly use video conferencing for clinical supervision and to meet with my own therapist. I enjoy the flexibility of location and scheduling, the comfort of my own private environment and being able to make a cup of tea after a session and reflect at my own pace instead of navigating public transport or traffic.
