Counselling and Psychotherapy
What is counselling?
Counselling will provide you with the opportunity to talk about your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment.
It is a supporting and understanding space where you will be able to explore issues and life events which are having a negative impact on your life.
Counselling is a talking therapy that helps makes sense of unhelpful thoughts and feelings, thus empowering you to feel more in control of your life. You can explore unresolved past experiences, which in turn offers you a greater sense of clarity in the present and an increased sense of self and optimism for the future.
I am not here to offer you advice. I am simply here to listen to you and to help you gain awareness into your current issues. You are the expert when it comes to you.
What is psychotherapy?
Psychodynamic Counselling uses the therapeutic relationship to gain insight into your unconscious relationship patterns, which will have evolved since childhood.
These important, past relationships which were likely formed in youth are often re-enacted with other people in your adult life. They may be affecting your current pattern of thinking, feeling and your behaviours.
As your psychotherapist, I am always taking care to monitor how this may affect the counselling relationship, as well as your relationships outside of the counselling room.
