Counselling

Who needs counselling?

There are still many people who have misunderstandings about counselling; thinking only people experiencing diagnosable problems seek counselling. the fear of stigmatisation deters individuals from acknowledging their problems and seeking help thus creating unnecessary suffering.

If you feel that you are struggling alone with some difficult issues such as change, separation, relationship problems, loss, depression, stress, anxiety or even just simply want to know yourself. then counselling may be of great help. if you want to get heard and understand your deepest concerns, or if you want to feel about yourself and recognise your feelings, then counselling can help.

How I work

I provide a safe, confidential, warm, non-judgmental and supportive environment for you to explore the issues in your life or anything else you would like to talk about. By listening and empathising, I will help you to see things more clearly and help your to look at the different options. I work in a variety of ways to help you to develop your self awareness, to be valued as you are, find your inner strengths and I will guide you to find where you can begin to see your own way; I will lead you to become what you want to be. I draw from different styles to suit your individual needs. These include Person Centered, Gestalt, Psychodrama therapy, Transactional Analysis and Relaxation and Mindfulness techniques.

In this journey, the therapeutic relationship is built on mutual trust developed over a period of time. Sometimes you will feel happy, sometimes you will feel pain, fear, anger and sadness. You are encouraged to talk freely to share your feelings, thoughts, behaviour patterns and dreams with me. You are also encouraged to reflect on what is on your mind. I will go through this process with you with all my support. Our first session is to see if we are able to work together, if yes, then we will arrange further appointments.
