In this blog I will outline what counselling is, who it is for and what my approach is.
What is counselling?
Counselling is a form of one to one therapy, which is concentrated specifically on you, your experiences and your thoughts/feelings.
The aim of counselling is to allow you to:
Develop an awareness of patterns which are causing you difficulties in your life and/or relationships.
Interact with those patterns in new and more helpful ways.
Understand and heal, the source of these patters.
Who is counselling for and what is my approach?
Counselling is for EVERYONE. People usually come to therapy, to find happiness, peace or to get a handle on patterns of behaviours/habits which are causing them discomfort or just not serving them.
Each of these things, are very individual and happiness can look completely different from one person to the next.
In our therapy sessions, I will work with you to understand, from your perspective, what brought you to me in the first place. I amperson-centredin my apporach, I believe that you are the expert in your life.
In sessions with clients, I like to do three things:
Understand the current situation which brought you to therapy and what your goals for therapy are.
Explore your past to gain an understanding of your childhood and any significant events and how they may have been carried forward into your adult life.
At this point, I like to take a solution focused approach and collaborate with you to discover how you might realise your goals. Sometimes, this happens organically through our sessions together.
I am non-judgemental, approachable and truly curious about all my clients with a deep desire to empower and support.
Finding the right therapist for you, is like trying to find your prince(ess).Contact metoday to see if I am your frog!
