"Our thinking creates problems that the same type of thinking will not solve"
What is involved in counselling?
As a qualified person centred psychodynamic & interrogative counsellor I hold counselling and psychotherapy sessions to help you work through those life events and experiences in a safe environment that can support you through to change.
For those unfamiliar with the counselling process, “The overall aim of counselling is to provide an opportunity for you to work towards living in a more satisfying and resourceful way – the objectives of our particular counselling relationship however, will vary according to your needs.
What can counselling help with?
Counselling may be concerned with personal development issues; addressing and resolving specific problems; making decisions; coping with crisis; (e.g. stress, bereavement and redundancy), developing personal insight and knowledge; working through feelings of inner conflict or improving relationships with others.” (Code of Ethics and Practice of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). To visit (BCAP).
Crucially, the counsellor’s role is to facilitate change in the client, enabling the client to work through issues in ways which respect their values, personal resources and capacity for self-determination…rather than to tell the client what to do. Counselling then presents a unique opportunity for the client to work through many issues in a way that is safe whilst providing solutions; thus self empowering the client.
I'm not sure I'm ready to discuss my issues.
The client’s personal space is always respected, an area of the client’s life is explored only when there is a felt sense of safety and an open willingness to do so on behalf of the client.
