Counselling with me
Within my private practice I provide a counselling service and my approach is non directive and directive, this allows for a bespoke style of counselling that can fit all. I have a psycho-educational style which can teach you life skill and introduce interventions. With you at the heart of the therapy I can listen and explore with you to unravel what has brought you to therapy. Counselling is a process where the client and counsellor work together to come up with different ways to experience various situation The role as counsellor is to enable my client to explore many aspects of your life and feelings, by talking openly and freely. Talking in such a way it is rarely possible with family or friends, who are likely to be emotionally involved. I hold the relational space in a non-judgemental way, with no magic wand or advice, my work is based on a psycho-educational and holistic model that allows for change to occur.
Counselling is very useful and effective approach, which is used for many issues, I give a list of issues that I work with, I also encourage my clients to come to therapy when they are unsure why they are feeling this way, I encourage a clear communication so that within the therapy it might become clear. I give the you an opportunity to express difficult feelings such as anger, resentment, guilt and fear in a confidential environment. The counsellor may encourage the client to examine parts of their lives that they may have found difficult or impossible to face before. There may be some exploration of early childhood experiences in order to throw some light on why an individual reacts or responds in certain ways in given situations. This is often followed by considering of why behaviours have bee carried into adult hood and ways in which the client may change such behaviours.
Effective counselling reduces confusion, allowing the client to make effective decisions leading to positive changes in their attitude and/or behaviour. The ultimate aim of counselling is to enable the client to make their own choices, reach their own decisions and to act upon them accordingly.
