After our phone consultation, I will have more of a sense of what has brought you to counselling. From there, we will have our initial session where, within a safe and confidential space, you can begin to tell me your story. Through this gentle process; where you set the pace and tone, we will work together to identify what is causing your discomfort and stress.
We will consider new ways of coping; replacing older ones that may no longer be suitable or appropriate. I believe in, 'joining the dots' and looking at cycles and patterns of behaviour which often mean we may have become stuck in a way of being. You may find yourself speaking about your family or your childhood and any significant life-events with me. As we build your picture and understand more about your identity, you will likely experience a deepening sense of self and with that, a feeling of strength and empowerment.
As a therapist, I work relationally so earning your trust and enabling you to feel entirely comfortable is integral to the way I work. My training and my natural empathy enables me to achieve this. By 'freeing you up' to put down some of your baggage, I can help you feel less weighed-down and work with you to identify, acknowledge and ultimately, let go of what may be holding you back. I believe I can offer you a space where you can be yourself and honestly explore what is tiring your mind and compromising your head space.
