What is Counselling and psychotherapy?

Counselling and psychotherapy is where without judgement or interpretation, a supportive and genuine trusting relationship can develop between us, allowing you to talk about and explore your feelings in a safe, confidential environment.   It is a way of learning about and understanding your thoughts better, of finding a way through difficulties and with the aim of coming out feeling more positive about yourself.

You are your own expert, and you hold the key to make the right changes to suit you.  In counselling, I we will work along side each other to help you explore and develop your potential to realise the changes you want to make for a happier, more productive and authentic life.


Why come for Counselling and Psychotherapy?

If you feel you have been suffering from depression, anxiety, struggling with your sexuality, gay and bisexual issues or difficulties with coming out, having relationship issues, if you are or have been bullied, or your finding your moods overwhelming and difficult to manage, then counselling is a way to explore your current way of being and begin to look for some understanding.  When we are able to understand ourselves better, we are able to start the process of change.
