Living in the world can sometimes bring difficulties. Loss and bereavement, relationship problems, isolation and loneliness, addiction, infidelity, lack of purpose, and questions of sexuality are some of these: anger, shame, sadness, escapism, losing our way or simply putting ones head-in-the-sand are ways that we respond. When this begins to interfere with the quality of how we live, we may seek counselling. We want to live better.
People come to counselling for many reasons. For some a sudden loss or trauma may have made coping difficult. Others may want to gain more insight into themselves. Some experience personal, emotional or relationship difficulties, and sometimes we just don’t know what is wrong. Whatever your reasons research has shown that speaking to a professional in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment can help.
Sometimes our problems and our responses to them are related to past experiences or early relationships. Exploring these and our here and now behaviours, thoughts and feelings can help us to understand our worlds, allowing space for new possibilities and ways of being – allowing space for change.
I offer a safe, confidential relationship where you can talk about your problems and concerns without judgement. Together we will explore your world and look for new possibilities within it.
