Counselling

What is counselling?

Counselling is a collective term for a talking therapy in which the Counsellor creates a safe and confidential environment for you to be able to explore your difficulties. You may come with an identified problem or you may wish to explore aspects of your life and feelings that are giving rise to conflict or unhappiness in your life, which you are unable to share with friends, family or your employer. The experience of sharing your problems in a safe and confidential space with a Counsellor that you can trust and collaborate with allows you the opportunity to challenge old patterns of unhelpful behaviour or perspectives in your life and in relationships, which can result in you finding the confidence and resolve to make new choices that will lead to a more fulfilling and rewarding life.

Counselling is a very personal experience and there may be times during your therapy when you may have to confront painful feelings and make difficult decisions. Talking to a qualified Therapist can help you process these negative or painful feelings and whilst no one can completely solve another’s problems, counselling can help you to explore alternative ways of looking at a situation which you may not have previously considered and help you develop insights in to factors that may have been contributing to your difficulties that you previously weren’t aware of.
