Sometimes what we need in life is someone to talk to. Someone we can be completely open and honest with without being afraid of upsetting them or being judged. Someone who will really listen and help us to make sense of why we feel the way we do. Someone who can help us develop the tools we need to cope with our emotions.
As well as providing a safe space and being someone to talk to, as a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor, I am able to combine a number of different psychotherapeutic methods and tailor therapy to suit your individual needs. My approach is open and non-judgemental, encouraging but also challenging when appropriate. It is important that you feel comfortable and able to explore your emotions freely. Sessions are mainly led by you – you decide what you want to explore and we work together at your pace.
Therapy may be short-term, mainly solution-focused where we look at developing strategies and providing the tools you need to help you handle your emotions effectively. Or it can be more in-depth, longer-term therapy where we explore your past to identify the root causes of current emotional issues. This can give you a much greater understanding of yourself and help you to make sense of how you are feeling, enabling you to have more control of your emotions and make the positive changes you need to move forward.
