Counselling and Psychotherapy are always all about you; about your process, your agenda and your worldview. I provide challenge safely and respectfully and will guide you gently to those places where the work needs to focus; I can be direct when needed but always with care and with utmost positive regard for you and your position.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can sometimes leave us feeling slightly vulnerable and exposed after a session, I will always endeavour to keep you safe, grounded and to remind you of the bigger picture; return you to a place where you can resume a self of self and balance in your day ahead of you.
It is always recommended and we discuss this often in our sessions together about self-care and the importance of taking care after a session; we talk about managing your day ahead so that there is space to be, reflect and to self-care during your day ahead.
The journey inward is bountiful; there is always so much to learn and uncover as we rummage around the parts that remain mostly, for most, dormant; sometimes the terrain is hard going and tough, other times it is refreshing and the awareness of a part of ourselves that we weren’t aware becomes very much like the exploration of somewhere beautiful and untouched; like a landscape seen for the first time. It can be a powerful experience, a joyful experience, but also, at times a challenging and often painful journey too
