What happens in a counselling session ? *You can expect to meet on a regular basis for a one hour session.
*You can expect counselling to give you a place to talk about how you feel, your experiences, thoughts and responses to situations.My role is to work with you so that these things are shared in a confidential space and you are not alone with them.
*You may want to explore your relationships, or how to cope with things happening in your life, now, or in your past.
*My job is to see things from your point of view , to give emotional support and empower you to make changes, take control , to adapt or cope; as you decide and at your pace.
*By offering you a warm and accepting relationship I can give you the space to reflect and gain new perspectives .
*I do not judge your choices or decisions but listen carefully to help you to a better understanding of them.
*Counselling can be long or short term.You may want to come to meet me, for a free initial 20 minute session, and then decide if you would like to continue.You can make an arrangement ,which we can review as often as you would like.I would want to check with you, as we work, to ensure the sessions are meeting the aims you have.
