How can counselling help?
Counselling is a decision to make time each week to focus on you. How often do you stop, switch your phone off, and simply reflect on how you’re feeling and listen to what you need? Many of us lead increasingly busy lives with all sorts of demands on our time, energy and emotions. It can be easy to just keep going, the way you always have, without really taking the time to check in with yourself.
Whether you choose to see me online or outdoors, counselling offers a chance to slow down and talk in confidence with a trained professional. I am not here to judge and I will help you explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace.
Making time to do this can help resolve inner conflict, leave you with a better understanding of yourself and those around you, improve clarity in your relationships and increase your self-awareness. The learning and insight it’s possible to gain, can serve you for the rest of your life.
Perhaps you’re experiencing anxiety or depression and you’re struggling to manage on your own. You might have negative thoughts or behaviours that you want to change, or you might want to talk about events in your life or in your relationships that are troubling you.
I welcome people from all backgrounds and I will listen carefully to what you have to say. There is no shame in seeking support and prioritising your mental health. In the same way you would attend to physical aches and pains, your mind and body work together, and both benefit from our care and attention.
