What Is Counselling?

Counselling is a process that allows you to work through issues that may be

causing you distress. The job of a Counsellor is to listen, understand and help you to find solutions to your problem, to assist and empower you to gain practical support and deal with issues, and help you, as you go through a crisis.

I will not judge you, criticise, or advise you, but i will be respectful and empathetic.

I am here to support you with any issue that you are struggling with, and to help you find the answers to your problems.

How can Counselling help?

Counselling helps you deal with and overcome difficulties that are causing emotional pain. It can give you the space and time needed for you to talk and explore

difficult feelings and find solutions to your issues. There are many issues

Counselling can help you with, it provides a safe space for you to talk and it is

my job to support and respect your views.

Couples Counselling

Couples Counselling isnt just for a couple in a romantic relationship, it can be for any two people who are experiencing problems, relatives, friends, work colleagues or any other two people who are having issues communicating with each other effectively and wish to resolve the relationship problems so they are able to move on more positvely. I can provide the safe space needed for individuals to openly discuss their problems, for each person to listen to the other without any interruptions or disagreements, to work through their conflicts and to resolve any issues causing them pain and inability to move forward.

Life Coaching

Life coaching differs to counselling in that I help to empower clients to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential and achieving ambitions.
