What Is Counselling and how it can help?
Counselling is a process that allows you to work through issues that may be
causing you distress. The job of a Counsellor is to listen, understand and help you to find solutions to your problems, to assist and empower you to gain practical support and deal with issues, and help you, as you go through a crisis.
I will not judge you, criticise, or advise you, but i will be respectful and empathetic, I can give you the space and time needed for you to talk and explore difficult feelings .
I am here to support you with any issue that you are struggling with, and to help you find the find solutions to your issues that are causing emotional pain.
There are many issues Counselling can help you with, it provides a safe space for you to talk and it is my job to support and respect your views.
Young Persons Counselling
With my younger clients, the therapeutic methods i use vary slightly based on their individual characters, understanding and ability. Some of these methods include playing games, various crafts, mindfulness, relaxation techniques and journalling so they are able to fully engage in the Counselling process.
Couples Counselling isn't just for a couple in a romantic relationship, it can be for any two people who are experiencing problems, relatives, friends, work colleagues or any other two people who are struggling with communicating with each other effectively, and wish to resolve the relationship problems so they are able to move on more positvely.
I can provide the safe space needed for individuals to openly discuss their problems, for each person to listen to the other without any interruptions or disagreements, to work through their conflicts and to resolve any issues causing them pain and inability to move forward.
Life coaching differs to counselling in that I help to empower clients to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential and achieving ambitions.
What is Email Therapy?
Email Therapy is in a time-delayed format and it involves you, the client, typing your thoughts, feelings, problems, concerns or whatever you want to talk about and sending them via email to me (a maximum of 800 words). I then take the time to read and respond to your email with a well-thought-out supportive therapeutic responce. Clients can send emails anytime and I will provide a response within 2 working days of receiving the email.
Clients may not always have the time to attend face-to-face therapy. Email Therapy offers you the opportunity to send an email to me from anywhere and at any time.
Animal Assisted Therapy
Animals can help clients to relax, ease anxiety and help to facilitate communication regarding feelings, emotions and issues. For this purpose I would like you to meet Mabel and George.
