Making sense of life with all its ups and downs can leave one feeling they are alone at times. You may have tried talking to loved ones, partners or friends and still unable to find some peace or understanding of the challenge you are facing. Or you may have simply found it difficult to talk to the important people in your life leaving you feeling even more isolated with your difficulties.
Until now you may have felt and wondered if help was available, and if there was somewhere you could bring your thoughts and feelings regardless of what they were, to someone who would be impartial. Attending individual counselling is a place where you would be able to begin to explore in private and confidence all those unspeakable issues that have been upsetting, confusing or affecting your day-to-day functioning.
Together, you as the client and me as your therapist will begin to build a trusting, therapeutic relationship where everything you choose to discuss is always important and valued.
Usually the first consultation is for you and I to get to know each other, spending time discussing what has brought you to counselling, how long you have had the difficulty and how it has been affecting your day-to-day functioning and interactions.
Any questions you have about counselling and how I work can be discussed in this session. It is not unusual for people to try at least 2 to 3 counsellors before deciding on the person they feel comfortable with, for this reason I have a reduced rate for the first consultation.
Life changes often brings with it challenges, whether it is with relationships, work, study or just within yourself. Meeting these challenges sometimes can mean having the space to explore with someone else through talking through the changes and getting a clearer perspective.
"Dialogue is about mutuality and collaborative exploration. It is dynamic." (E. van Deurzen)
