Understand the difficulties you are facing

Most people face challenges in their life at some time. However sometimes the challenges become too much and you can feel helpless and overwhelmed. It could be anxiety over the uncertainty over the future, stress in work, loss of a loved one, depression, or problems in your relationship.
Counselling can be of great support for you if you are experiencing difficulties in your life and talking to a counsellor will help you find clarity and a way out of feeling helpless.

Counsellors listens attentively and patiently in a non-judgemental way and understand the difficulties you are facing from your point of view.
By talking in a free and open way, which is often not possibly with friends and family, you are given the opportunity to grow and find options that you may not have considered before. The counsellor may help you look at the options and help you decide the best way forward for you.

What you can expect

Counselling helps you to understand and resolve your issues. It gives you the support and tools to cope with your thoughts, feelings and life issues. It will help you get the most out of your life and feel stronger, happier and give you a greater sense of direction. In my practice I tailor the therapy to the client – as people respond differently to different approaches and therapies. I work closely with you to use the right therapy and the best approach to help you progress successfully and make the changes to improve your life.

What your first session will look like

It is important that you can talk honestly and openly with your counsellor, set clear goals and make real progress. The first session focuses on getting to know each other and understanding if there is a good fit for us to work together. I will be asking you about past experiences of counselling, what your symptoms are and I will explain to you how counselling can help you in your particular situation.
We can talk about why you are here and what you would like to get from counselling. It is very useful to put together a list of some of the things that are concerning you and what you need help with so we can talk about it during this first session. It might include concerns like this:

Online Counselling

Technology is an easy and convenient means to connect to counselling from wherever and whenever suits you. If your time is limited or you do not live close by or if you prefer to work with a counsellor ‘at a distance’ from you or your environment. As with face-to-face counselling, online counselling is completely private, confidential and follows the same code of ethics.

To start the process, I send you an assessment form for you to complete and return. There may be cases where Online Counselling is not appropriate and we will need to discuss alternative ways to work together. We will then agree on a suitable time and I will send you simple instructions on how to set up the call for our session and ask you to confirm the appointment 24 hours ahead of the scheduled call.
