Why Counselling?

Sometimes in life, we may experience situations and emotions that are unfamiliar and overwhelming. These emotions are expressed through various feelings which may include but not limited to: feelings of loneliness, confusion, depression, anxiety, anger, feeling lost, stressed, frustrated and perhaps even feeling fearful or terrified.

Not really knowing how to respond to such emotions and situations often makes us feel helpless and stuck.

How can we make sense of this inner turmoil when we cannot understand what is happening to us?

How can we move forward when we have lost any sense of purpose or meaning?

That's where counselling can really help. It provides a safe space for an individual to express how they're feeling and through this trusting client-counsellor relationship, you can really begin to open up about issues that were perhaps bottled up. It enables a person to explore in depth what is troubling them and work through these underlying issues.

I work from a Person Centred approach of counselling whereby the client leads the therapy and through my gentle interventions, the client is encouraged to find their own answers to their issues. The client is the expert and it is an extremely gentle and tentative approach which I have used to help many people.
