What is Counselling & Psychotherapy?
Counselling focuses on enhancing your ability to cope with specific challenges in life such as transitions, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship endings, workplace issues, & new beginnings.
Together we take time to resolve crises, reduce distress, improve wellbeing & develop goals for change. During the process, you may gain deeper understanding of your behaviours, choices and decisions.
During this supportive approach we focus on your existing strengths and skills to build resilience, solve problems and develop a path forward.
Counselling sessions are 50 minutes in duration and typically take place weekly or fortnightly over a three-to-ten sessions.
Throughout our lives we may notice similar issues arising time and again in different contexts and relationships.
Psychotherapy focuses on creating change within our self by focussing on these issues in order to obtain greater self-awareness, and change patterns of behaviour that may be disrupting work, study & relationships
Whilst emphasising caring & understanding rather than advice & diagnosis, I aim to gently work with you towards developing meaning & self-actualisation so that you may achieve the type of life and relationship experiences that you desire.
Psychotherapy sessions are 50 minutes in duration and typically held weekly or fortnightly over an extended period
Regardless of which approach you decide to take – short or long-term – my priority is to establish a relationship with you that’s collaborative, accepting, authentic, and honours your unique world.
