Counselling is a talking therapy. It works by providing a safe and confidential space where you can talk freely about whatever is going on for you.
I will listen to you with understanding empathy and care as we discuss your situation within an unconditional positive environment, creating a safe and supportive place for you to explore your situation and yourself. This can be hugely beneficial in allowing you to see more clearly what is going on and what needs to change. And, importantly, how to change things.
Counselling is extremely helpful and positive, it creates a unique relationship which can empower and enable understanding and change.
I believe it is every persons right to be able to receive counselling, regardless of whatever their circumstances are, and aim to offer that as best as I can.
As we all are starting to understand our mental health better and its importance in our lives, counselling can be a great way to explore, discover, and make changes to help create and maintain a healthy, balanced and stable mental health.
Couples and Online Counselling
The aim of Couples Counselling is to create an environment where you can openly discuss what is going on for you both, enabling you both to feel heard and understood. Helping you to explore your relationship and find what things need to change, and how to change them. As with all counselling It requires a willingness to be open and honest with yourself and your partner, as well as a desire to explore yourself and your relationship. It is not a quick fix, it is however a platform to start exploring, (re)building and (re)discovering yourselves and your relationship, which can be very powerful. With Intent and commitment it can be really useful in bringing the changes that are required.
If online Counselling appeals to you I also offer Counselling through online video/webcam via a safe and secure platform called Doxy.me. This is encrypted as well as being HIPAA and GDPR compliant, meaning I can offer you a safe and secure way of seeing me. There is nothing for you to download, just a simple link to follow to my private "Therapy Room". You may feel more safe and able to open up by meeting in this way, or you may feel restricted by time or distance. Meeting Online allows us to be face to face which will enable the therapeutic process to flow in a similar way as meeting in person. It does require you to make for yourself a safe and quiet place free of interruptions where you will not be overheard and have a safe and reliable device with a webcam.
