There are hundreds of approaches to counselling, but the biggest factor for success is the relationship between the counsellor and their client. Providing a safe, non-judgemental environment is key to help you gain emotional support, a better understanding of yourself and the insight and tools to make the decisions that are right for you.
“You can’t stop the waves however, with help, you can learn to surf."
My aim is to make the process as stress free as possible.
There are many myths about counselling, and I am happy for you to ask questions so we can debunk them together. I will talk about what you are likely to expect and ask, “what are your hopes?” with the idea of working collaboratively towards this.
Every person is unique, and my integrative approach ensures our work together will be personalised to suit your needs. Previously I have heard:
Short-Term or Long-Term?
Short-term approach - Some clients choose to have 3, 4, 6 or more sessions and we can be flexible.
Longer term is open-ended, but you are in charge and I have regular reviews to make sure you are getting what you need from the work we do together.
We can discuss which is best for you at your initial consultation.
To see if counselling can make a difference to your life, please feel free to get in touch. I can offer a free 15-minute telephone call so you can ask questions before you make your decision whether to proceed with an initial consultation.
I look forward to hearing from you.
