Therapies

Here to Listen, Here to Help

Each person responds to the events that happen in their lives differently. Your issue, what you would like to bring to therapy is the starting point for our work together. Talking with a therapist can help you understand how to manage difficult feelings, problems, conflict and distress. A way of exploring and untangling thoughts and feelings.  It can help you to move on with your life in a more fulfilling way. Anger management, bereavement, anxiety, depression, relationships issues, divorce, eating patterns, child related issues and addiction are just some of the reasons for seeking therapy. You might not feel there is a specific issue, just an uneasiness and a desire to think about that.

 

How Counselling Can Help

The way counselling can help will depend on the person receiving the treatment. For many, the fact that counselling offers a safe and confidential environment to speak in is all it takes. In life, what we say to others can sometimes have a knock-on effect, altering relationships and the way people see each other. Counselling eliminates this problem and offers you the space and freedom to explore your own thoughts with an unbiased party.

My integrative approach draws particularly upon person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapy. We cannot change the past events in our lives but we can choose how we think about them and how they affect our current being. I believe we all have the ability to change and grow. Therapy is a safe space to bring issues and to think about things that maybe troubling. How much you wish to say is your choice.
