About You and Counselling
Counselling/psychotherapy is a talking therapy that gives you time and space to discuss your worries and feelings with someone who is not involved in your life.
My approach uses a variety of different methods and insights, such as those drawn from Transactional Analysis (TA), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Sand Tray Therapy.
The aim is to work in partnership with you, to help you recognise and gain self awareness.
In this way you become more aware of how your thoughts, feelings and behaviour all interact, which will include looking at significant past and current relationships to help you understand yourself and how you interact with people and situations in your life.
Counselling is beneficial when you are experiencing:
Relationship problems within your family, work, neighbours or friendships.
Separation and divorce and the impact on you emotionally, psychologically and materially.
Anxiety. depression and stress in all life situations.
Loss and grief in all aspects of life including miscarriage, early pregnancy loss. Loss of family members, friends, relationships, jobs, homes etc.
Traumatic life experiences such as the effects of suicide, car or any serious accidents and PTSD.
Intimacy and sexual issues.
Any relationships and forms or abuse.
Any and all addictions such as eating disorders, shopping, alcohol, drugs, smoking and sex.
Loneliness and low self-esteem and lack of confidence.
Generally anything that is troubling you.
