Life is often difficult, leaving us feeling angry, sad, scared or lost. We often carry thoughts of guilt and shame which negatively impact how we view ourselves. Seeking professional help requires courage, but it is an indicator that you are ready to move forward towards a more fulfilling life. Despite life’s problems, with insight and support people have shown that they are remarkably resilient and can continue to live, thrive and prosper.
Counselling allows us to look at ourselves with acceptance, compassion and understanding, to let us gain perspective and learn strategies to manage our thoughts and emotions more effectively. Interrupting negative thoughts allows us to be more in control of our lives and less influenced by the behaviour of others. It can also facilitate change in our own destructive behaviours which cause problems for us. I seek to assist clients to face, rather than avoid, issues which trouble them.
Communicating with clients in a warm, secure, confidential environment, I provide non-judgmental and compassionate integrative therapy, client-led and using strategies from person-centred counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy.
Often re-examining our values is part of the healing process, together with discovering how we think and why we behave as we do. Early life experiences often dictate how we behave and the influence of our family origin. These can hinder our capacity to grow and become unique, self-guided individuals.
Counselling can be transformative and profoundly rewarding, take the challenge and improve your life.
