There are many different “types” of counselling and therapy available, some better known than others. If you are interested in understanding a little bit about these different therapies, then please click here for more information. What I suspect you are more interested in, however, is how I can help you.
Clients come to me with a wide range of issues, but all have one thing in common; all have a problem with which they need some help. These problems are as diverse as the individuals themselves, but might be issues such as redundancy, bereavement, anxiety, depression, problems in a relationship, abuse, stress, financial difficulties leading to bankruptcy, dealing with life changes or simply an inability to move forward in a positive direction. I can even help people who are struggling to give up smoking or lose weight.
People come to counsellors for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes people are in crisis, but not always. If you have any kind of problem or issue in your life with which you are struggling to cope, then counselling could help.
Often people find things difficult after a major event in their life, such as the loss of a loved one, an accident, a relationship breakdown or the loss of work. In these situations a counsellor can help the individual to deal with the issue and move on from it.
Counsellors also often work with people who have goals they wish to achieve and want some help to do so. A counsellor can be a great motivator and can help you to deal with the stresses and occasional disappointments that will inevitably come with the pursuit of your dreams.
Counselling is a process that can be very positive and that explores the reasons behind why you feel how you do about a particular issue and helps you to deal with those feelings. I am trained and qualified in many different counselling methods, so when I work with clients, I can draw techniques from many different areas of counselling in a programme specifically tailored to the individual.
