Counselling is a process that
can provide opportunities for individuals, couples and families
to work towards living in a more satisfying and resourceful
Working through painful or difficult situations with a
trained professional can increase our understanding of personal
or relationship problems.
Counselling provides a safe and
supportive environment in which to explore the feelings and
have about your past and present life experiences. The
counselling process is natural and not mysterious.
You and I
together in a focussed manner to enable you to find solutions
I will not analyse you or offer advice,
but aim to help you develop your own strengths and means
with present and future life situations.
You are in
control of what you talk about and part of my role is to
work at a
pace that suits you.
A good counsellor will not judge
you, but can help you develop more effective ways of
issues which may seem unmanageable at present and
to move towards new goals.
Remember, going to see a counsellor:
- is not a sign of weakness
- does not mean you can't cope
- does not mean you are "cracking up" or "going mad"
