One in four people will experience mental ill health throughout their life. So how can counselling be beneficial? Counselling is a confidential service where clients meet a qualified professional for regular sessions usually on a weekly basis for short or long term theraputic work. It is a safe space where you are given time and space to explore, to discover and work towards a deeper understanding of self and improved mental well-being. Talking to someone who is not connected to what you are experiencing can hold up a different window, another perspective which can help facilitate change.

People seek support and help for events, issues that have happened in the past, that are happening in the present and that can impact on the future.

People may experience:

  • • Anxiety & Depression
  • • Loneliness
  • • Trauma
  • • Relationships
  • • Sexuality
  • • Self Esteem
  • • Bereavement
  • • Gender

If you want to move on to the next step and make an initial appointment to see if you would like to book more sessions.

The initial appointment is an opportunity to discuss what your expectations are and what you want to achieve from counselling; also if we can work together therapeutically. The initial appointment is longer than a normal session but the cost is still the same. After the appointment there will be time to reflect and think about if I am the right counsellor for you. If you decide that I am the right counsellor for you subsequent sessions can then be booked.
