Counselling is a therapeutic
conversation which is:
Its aims are to
- Motivate growth and change
- Support recovery from trauma and loss
- Allow the safe expression of feelings
- Aid communication with others
- Strengthen self-esteem and autonomy
Counselling can be short term, medium or long term....
Short term therapy focuses on a particular need for change, with intensive focus on one aspect of your life and ‘homework’ in between sessions;
Medium term therapy helps you gain perspective on a particularly difficult period of life, and supports you in recovering and making choices;
Long term therapy encourages you to learn more about yourself – so that you can change patterns of behaviour, and resolve painful experiences.
those who are not sure how to choose a counsellor, I offer an assessment
session (face to face or on Skype) to point you in the direction of the
kind of therapy that I hope will best suit your needs.
