What you can expect
Counselling involves a constructed and structured relationship between a therapist and client in which a client is supported in exploring any issues which have bought them to this point.
As a therapist I endeavour to provide you with a safe space in which you can be facilitated in making some sense of your concerns. My aim is to assist you in gaining some insight using a relational, integrative approach, and perhaps , together explore possible solutions which have meaning for you.
Counselling is an entirely confidential process. Any issues you choose to share with me will not be disclosed to anyone else except in the event of a disclosure of harm to self or others, in which case I have a legal duty of care share that information.
The decision to undertake therapy is a financial and emotional commitment. Therapy is not always a linear process. Therapeutic interventions can sometimes feel challenging and this forms part of the work.
