What is Counselling?


Counselling is a talking therapy that can help individuals make better sense of what's happening in their lives. It's a journey (short or long) where the counsellor accompanies the client through difficult thoughts and emotions, to help them arrive at a more comfortable and empowered place in their life.

Many individuals can experience symptoms and behaviours associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger long after traumatic events. I will help you make sense of these symptoms and behaviours and then find a way forward to a more fulfilling life. 

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we experience in our lives. Through counselling, I can help you work out what these feelings are trying to tell you, and then assist you in finding perspective and balance that you may seek in your life. 

The picture here rings true with me if I think of the mind like a jigsaw puzzle. Pieces can get lost, misplaced, or you could end up with jigsaw pieces which don't form part of your main picture. To get the picture looking a little more as you'd like it, it sometimes gets a little messy. This is the process of healing, and working on a better picture - i.e. your own life and wellbeing.
