We may all, at times, feel confused, encounter challenging situations, or experience painful emotions. In some instances, those are such that we are not able to understand and resolve them ourselves or through the resources available to us. Counselling can offer a safe and confidential space in which to explore such difficulties.
A counsellor is someone who is skilled, supportive, and encouraging; someone who, through not being involved in your situation, is able to listen to you empathetically and without judgement. My role as a counsellor is not to offer you a ready-made solution; rather it is to support you in your exploration, through discussion and reflection, to reach greater insight into your situation and the choices available to you. I cannot unlock doors for you but I may be able to assist you in finding the right key.
I firmly believe that, no matter what obstacles life throws in our way, each and every one of us has in reserve the capacity to learn to overcome those challenges and to experience the renewed pleasure of feeling in charge of our lives.
If this sounds like the sort of thing you are looking for, then please don't hesitate to get in touch.
