Whatever your reasons for seeking counselling I appreciate it can be one of the hardest decisions you will make. The thought of being open or sharing painful feelings alone can add to the fear of seeking out a counsellor. However, it is a really positive step and many people feel better after the first session.
By providing you with a safe, confidential space to talk and feel truly listened to, I will help you to explore your concerns and help you to feel more empowered in your responses to them. For some clients, it is the genuine understanding of another person that leads to a positive changes in therapy. For others, it is the actions or adjustments that come from gaining awareness and acceptance of our unique way of making sense of the world.
Gestalt counselling is considered a humanistic, existential psychotherapy and emphasises the present moment, the ‘here and now’. The practice uses cognitive insight into current experiences, encouraging a client to explore creatively areas of life that have been obstructed.
Sessions are tailored to each individual depending on their age, style of engagement and presenting issues. Counselling can be transformative!
