What is Counselling?

Counselling provides a safe, trusting and nurturing environment to enable you to look at the issues in your life and to make choices about what is important to you and thus facilitate the changes which you believe are necessary for you.

What happens in the counselling session?


My intention is that we can build an even relationship where I can understand you and your issues and to enable you to find the answers which are right for you. It is also important to develop a relationship which is also trusting. Each session lasts about one hour and we would normally meet weekly.

What do people talk about?

What you talk about in counselling is up to you. People bring many different issues to counselling. Some examples are: Problems in relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement, self harm, trauma, abuse, low self esteem.

Confidentiality

What happens in the counselling setting is between the counsellor and client. The only exception to this is if someone is at risk and that would be discussed
