Counselling Services

Counselling is a talking therapy that can be helpful in many different situations and circumstances. It is non-judgmental and confidential, and creates a safe space for clients to share and explore.

At your initial consultation appointment for counselling, I will take some general information about you and we can talk about what’s led you to look for support, as well as what you’re hoping for from your counselling sessions.

Reasons that people seek counselling vary widely but can include issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Bereavement, grief and loss
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Family difficulties
  • Past or present abuse or neglect
  • Trauma
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Compulsive or addictive behaviours

Sometimes people don’t have a clear view on why they’re drawn to counselling, but just want to be able to talk and explore whatever’s going on for them that feels uncomfortable or distressing. You don’t need to come to counselling with anything specific, sometimes this can emerge through the sessions and things can start to make more sense.

It’s important that you’re alone and in a confidential space for your counselling sessions, with any distractions minimised, and where you’re unlikely to be disturbed.

Sessions can be weekly, fortnightly or adhoc – we can discuss what feels right for you and agree how to proceed.

There’s no set amount of sessions – counselling can be short-term, long-term or occasional and I also offer single-session counselling. Whatever you decide, it’s important that counselling works for you and offers you the support and information you’re looking for.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch.
