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 ofdifficulties 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.

What to Expect…
It is my top priority to ensure you feel comfortable, and safe, I will provide you with a gentle and confidential space where you feel you can express whatever brings you to counselling.
Our first session, gives you the opportunity to make an informed decision about working with me, as I fully understand it can be daunting meeting someone for the first time. Through our discussions we will understand what has brought you to counselling and the best ways in which I can help you. With my experience as a counsellor, we can discuss areas of support which might be beneficial to you and the type of work we could do together. This session will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions or voice any fears that you may have. I am here to support you and make your therapeutic journey as pleasant as possible. I understand that it takes a lot of courage to seek help and will honour that by making the space a calm and safe place for you feel comfortable and safe in.
