"You can't change the past, only the future, and the only place you can change the future is in the present"
Counselling is a unique experience for everyone. It can be daunting to talk to someone about feelings and difficult to face up to things we need to address about ourselves. Life is ever changing and at the same time, we are evolving too. It is easy to get stuck in our familiar ways and to forget that we cannot always control our lives and this makes it harder to face new situations or changes that are sometimes forced upon us.
As a professional therapist, my role is to hear you and help you to explore yourself, look at your experiences and think about the changes you desire. You may be struggling with everyday issues or need some additional support to help you through a particularly challenging event in your life. Maybe you need my assistance to help you to come to terms with accepting the things you cannot change but finding better ways to manage them, develop more positive strategies to move forward in your life.
- Make important choices
- Accept responsibility for your own life
- Discover new perspectives and possibilities
- Improve coping skills
- Become your own choice maker
- Build self esteem and confidence
- Resolve feelings of distress, depression or anxiety
Underpinning my work, I have a philosophy that we can all help ourselves to manage and cope with what is put in our way. I want to help you to get to know yourself better by making sense of things and accepting situations.
"I have a belief that my clients go away with something ...whatever that is.
They come to me for help with something they cannot do for themselves - or so they think"
