As a person-centred counsellor, what I offer you is a private space for your voice to be heard and a relationship in which you may feel supported and understood. Counselling appointments can be a unique opportunity to safely express your emotions and talk through difficulties, without fear of judgement.
During the process I won’t tell you what to discuss or set an agenda, but I will work hard to listen and support your autonomy with warmth and understanding. Some clients find the process of therapy leads to changes, particularly in relationships with others. Others find they can better navigate transitions in life.
Setting aside time to talk and be heard by a trained listener may provide valuable time to process past or present experiences or perhaps talk about areas of life where you feel stuck. Time to vent. Time to reflect. Time to find a way forward.
