I respond to all enquiries as soon as possible as I know how stressful it can be to reach out to a counsellor. We will then agree a time when we will both be able to meet for an initial consultation which will take 50 to 60 minutes. This will be a space where you can tell me what is troubling you and we can discuss how we could work together on this. When we meet I will provide you with a registration form and paperwork regarding the terms we have agreed. By coming to an initial consultation you are in no way committing yourself to further sessions.
There are many different reasons why a person might come to counselling. Some people struggle with confidence issues, or might be knocked sideways by life events such as bereavement or relationship breakdown. Sometimes we feel low or unable to move forward, or so stressed and anxious that we feel we are losing control and life isn’t going how we would want it to be. This can leave you feeling any number or unpleasant emotions.
Often transition can undermine the way we feel. Times of transition are when changes are going on in our lives, and sometimes people struggle to cope with change, or sometimes people want change in their lives and are frustrated that nothing is changing. Either way we all struggle with our lives at some time or another and this is a common human experience that connects all people.
I do realise how difficult it is to find meaning to certain experiences and move on, but by making the decision to see a counsellor, you are taking the first step towards finding some clarity about what is going on for you moving nearer to finding a way forward.
