What to expect from counselling

Counselling is a talking therapy that allows people to explore problems and difficult thoughts and emotions in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space. It can be especially helpful if there is something in a person’s life they want to change or to talk through the associated thoughts and feelings.

As a person-centred counsellor I am non-directive, meaning that you steer our conversation whist I will offer insights and observations. I will not tell you what you should do or how to ‘fix’ things but instead we will explore the issues and if appropriate explore potential solutions.

I aim to establish a nurturing therapeutic relationship with you characterised by transparency and trust.

Ways to engage counselling

Face-to-face: in-person counselling at my practice. Best method if you prefer a more ‘real-time interaction’.

Online: covers my other method, videocall. Online counselling can offer a greater flexibility around times and access i.e., not being able to physically attend my practice.

Session length and frequency:

My sessions typically last for 60 minutes and suggested beneficial frequency is weekly or fortnightly.
