Counselling is a space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, to be in a relationship where you don't feel judged, but accepted and supported to implement the changes you want, to work through your issues. Counselling with me is about the quality of the relationship, is about being human and connected. Being listened to and having the time and opportunity to voice your feelings, can be healing and freeing.
What Conditions Can it Help?
Counselling can help with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, adverse childhood experiences, relationship problems, parenting difficulties, loss, bereavement, death anxiety, aging, redundancy, retirement and many other issues.
What Benefits can be Expected?
Depending on the presenting issues, time to see the benefits of counselling can vary.
Most common changes come in the form of feeling more positive about life, gaining confidence and self-esteem, being more courageous and daring to go after the things you want to achieve. You might start to identify what you want from relationships, having an understanding about meaningful, healthy and nurturing connections. You might start to love yourself more, to respect yourself and to consider yourself worthy. Benefits are different from person to person and it depends on external factors, too. Factors like resilience, emotional robustness and support network can influence the outcomes in counselling.
