"it all depends on how we look at things, and not how they are in themselves." - Carl Jung
At some point in our lives we all experience challenges, emotional difficulties and uncertainties which can leave us feeling anxious, distressed and overwhelmed.
You might be experiencing difficulties with relationships in terms of attachment and loss, experiencing work related stress, financial worries, illness, or trying to deal with an unresolved emotional trauma from the near or distant past.
As a consequence you might be feeling depressed, anxious, sad, angry, isolated, lacking in confidence, have low self-esteem, be stuck or unable to cope. At this point you might not know what has brought you to counselling and that is okay. This is where counselling can help.
The process of counselling can help you make sense of your world and help you towards a better understanding of yourself which in turn may lead to an improved ability to relate to others . Enhanced self awareness might lead to descreased defensiveness and improved relationships with other people. You might experience an increase in self-esteem and feel more able to express yourself.
As a counsellor I will provide you with a safe space and listen to you in a way that makes you feel heard and emotionally supported, without judgement. I will help you to unravel, express and make sense of your feelings and emotions using very gentle but effective techniques.
I understand that the counselling process can be painful and difficult as well as rich and rewarding. Your experience in counselling, our therapeutic relationship and the way we work together is important to me.
Our sessions will be conducted in a supportive, compassionate, respectful and confidential environment in which you will feel supported to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours at a pace that feels comfortable for you.
I offer one-hour, one-to-one sessions with adults in a private therapeutic space at Wadebridge. Appointments can be organised by calling or emailing me via my contact details.
The length of time people attend counselling can vary. There is no commitment made by attending a first meeting, and if you choose to meet with me again there is no obligation to commit to a minimum or maximum number of sessions.
Meetings are normally weekly for 60 minutes.
