Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a Counsellor or Therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues. Sometimes the term "counselling" is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a type of therapy in its own right.
At your appointment, you'll be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions and I`ll listen and support you without judging or criticising.
I can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, and find your own solutions to problems. But I won't usually give advice or tell you what to do.
You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months, or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.
Life Coaching focuses directly on identifying what you wish to achieve in the present and future. I can help you identify manageable goals and set tasks you can undertake to achieve your goals.
As a Therapist, I discovered the best approach to helping people make the changes they want in their lives, is to use a combination of life coaching, counselling and psychotherapy. I find this to be a more flexible and powerful way to help you effect more lasting change, than can be achieved through a single therapy approach alone.
I believe each individual has a unique way of learning and it is the therapy that needs to be tailored to the individual. So if you are looking to change your life and life style, you are in the right hands.
It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress, but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support after first sessions.
