What is Counselling?
The aim of psychotherapy and counselling is to support you to reach inner positivity, self-understanding and develop healthier strategies to face challenging situations. You may seek counselling at times of struggle, feeling sad or stuck or because you have experiences of trauma. It could also be that you would like to personally grow, improve your relationships and get to know yourself better. Counselling can help you process the hard times and learn from them as well as enjoy and cherish your good experiences.
What does Counselling involve?
Counselling involves us having a discussion about your problems, your life and having a space to reflect. Sessions last 50 minutes and are usually weekly on the same day, at the same time. This allows to create a consistent, stable therapeutic relationship.
What will happen in the initial session?
It can be daunting to start counselling and you may want to see how it feels first. The initial session is an opportunity for us to get a sense of each other and for you to decide if you would like to work with me. It usually involves having a conversation about what is on your mind and setting goals for the therapy. You can also ask any questions you may have.
