Thinking of counselling?
Life can sometimes become difficult and challenging. Problems can feel like they are getting on top of you and you can feel stuck. At these vulnerable times, it may be beneficial to reach out for professional support.
Counselling is a confidential and personal service, attuned to your needs. It provides support to enable you to understand yourself, reflect on your concerns, clarify your needs and to set clear intentions. You will be exposed to new ideas, strategies and ways of living. It is usually challenging, educative and valuable. It can also be enjoyable and stimulating.
Counselling supports us to take a more active approach to our lives by identifying and changing our patterns of thinking and behaving in order to create new positive outcomes.
My services are focused on improving your capacity to live and act in ways that will enhance your happiness and well-being.
I welcome telephone inquiries about my services and approach. It is sometimes useful to have a preliminary discussion to consider your unique set of circumstances and how I can assist.
