Why would I see a Counsellor or Psychotherapist?
Relationship difficulties, grief, stress, abuse, sexuality issues, depression and anxiety are just some issues which can cause a person to feel overwhelmed or seek support. People from all walks of life come to counselling for lots of different reasons. Some people seek help in dealing with immediate or current circumstances. Others want to receive the support of a professional in delving into childhood and family issues.
Counselling is for anyone who wishes to invest in personal growth or experience higher self-esteem. Some come for counselling in the search for healing or meaning. They may wish to pursue their search in the companionship of another human being.
My approach is Humanistic and Person Centred. I have a deep respect for the value, uniqueness and autonomy of every individual. The issues, needs and aims you identify in working with me will always guide your counselling process. I’m simply a fellow traveler working with you to excavate and explore, offering compassion, empathy and respect for your experience and feelings.
Anyone can benefit from counselling and the development of greater self-awareness at any point in life. Counselling is an investment in the self which you can draw from and benefit from long into the future.
Counselling can provide support, help you to develop coping skills and gain greater freedom and self esteem when dealing with issues such as:
- Bereavement/ Loss
- Childhood Issues
- Relationship Difficulties
- Illness/ Caring for a loved one in illness
- Inner Conflict
- Job loss and Retirement
- Life Changes
- Generally feeling not so great for some reason/ Feeling Stuck/ Should be feeling better.
