Counsellor

Counselling is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems with a counsellor. The counsellor helps you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. For some people, just the process of telling their story to a counsellor, and being listened to, is helpful.  A counsellor is a trained, objective professional with whom you can build a healing and trusting relationship. They are trained to offer different types of assistance; most frequently talking-based styles of therapy.

Counselling Services:

Counselling is based on a trusting professional relationship where you feel safe to talk about challenges.  I strive to make you feel comfortable, to listen respectfully and understand what it is you want to get out of your time in counselling.  We work together on understanding your challenges, accepting them, managing them and solving the solvable problems.  I bring a warm, compassionate and practical approach to counselling in helping you to resolve challenges in your life.

 

These are some of the approaches I use:

  • Rogerian Person Centred Therapy: a non- directive, empathetic approach that helps you make sense of how you are feeling. It aims to empower you.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): is an action oriented type of talk therapy that helps you identify unhelpful thinking or behavioural patterns and to find new perspectives and more useful ways of thinking , feeling and behaving to help you feel better and achieve your goals. Very helpful for anxiety and depression.
  • Mindfulness: Mindfulness involves being in the present moment and aware of our thoughts, feelings, body sensations and environment. It involves acceptance of “What is” meaning we can pay attention to our thoughts and feeling without judging them as good or bad. When we are in the present it allows us to be here now rather than rehashing the past or imagining what may happen in the future.
  • Solution Focussed: aims to help people experiencing difficulty find tools they can use immediately to manage symptoms and cope with challenges. It is grounded in the belief that although individuals may already have the skills to create change in their lives, they often need help identifying and developing those skills further.
  • Strengths Based: The strength-based approach has its foundation in social work. This type of approach builds the clients on their strengths, specifically seeing them as resourceful and resilient when they are in adverse conditions.
