About Counselling and Psychotherapy
‘The task of counselling is to give the ‘client’ an opportunity to explore, discover and clarify ways of living more satisfyingly and resourcefully’
(Click here British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)
Confronting and solving our problems may be a challenging process, requiring searching questions and honesty with ourselves. Many of us prefer to avoid the discomfort this may bring. However, this avoidance itself may require a great deal of energy, leaving us feeling emotionally exhausted and dissatisfied with our lives.
Escapism, in its many forms, may result in an inability to live life to the full. Counselling offers you a safe and confidential place to explore any present and past difficulties that may have a bearing on this.
Counselling therapy is a process of self-discovery and change – to help you explore and unlock your feelings, ways of thinking and ways of being. With the aim of changing those ways that are no longer useful and cause distress and integrating thoughts and behaviours that are more fulfilling to the life you wish to lead now.
Counselling facilitates the process of finding true self-acceptance.

What Benefits can I Expect?
Self care is an important aspect of life we often neglect. Discovering, and applying, the benefits of self care through counselling is something we all deserve.
Counselling provides the opportunity for a reflective space to think things through and make the choices that are right for you. This can be achieved through sharing your troubling inner thoughts and feelings with someone in a non-judgemental space.
