What to expect from counselling?

Therapy gives you a safe, non-judgemental space, to help you explore your thoughts and feelings.

 

You will go through a journey of self-discovery and increased self-awareness. First, it’s about awareness, then acceptance and then change. It will help you to make healthier and better choices for yourself.

Throughout the process, we will review your work together and look at what’s been working for you and what’s not and highlight the progress made.

Therapy can have many benefits because it’s so personalised and such well-rounded support for you, helping with emotional wellbeing and mental health, enabling people to live life to their full potential.

Types of Therapy

Person Centred Therapy

focuses on you as we believe, ‘you are the best expert of yourself’ aiming to help you reach your full potential, the best version of yourself. I will help you achieve that by accepting and valuing you, being honest and transparent with you and offering you unconditional positive regard.

Existential Therapy

Existential therapy tries to help people find meaning and purpose in their lives. It seeks to end the fear of the unknown. A therapist actively encourages patients to use their capacity to make choices and to develop their lives as a way to maximize their existence, or their reason for being. Yes, you have free will and the ability to determine your future. That could be stressful or empowering. Existential therapy’s goal is to help you make the choices that leave you feeling less anxious and more authentic.

Gestalt

Gestalt therapy is an approach to psychotherapy that helps clients focus on the present to understand what is actually happening in their lives at this moment, and how it makes them feel in the moment, rather than what they may assume to be happening based on past experience. Along with person-centred and existential therapy, it is one of the primary forms of humanistic therapy.

Psychodynamic Therapy

I may draw on psychodynamic therapy. This involves helping you to bring your subconscious – what is just below the surface of your awareness – into your conscious mind. It helps you become more aware of what’s in your subconscious, such as difficult memories and experiences, so you can understand how these deep-rooted feelings impact on you in the present and how you can learn to cope with them.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

is based on the idea that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are all connected and that because of this, you can become stuck in a cycle of negative thoughts and feelings. This approach can help you navigate challenges you face by examining the way you think and behave; making conscious, gradual changes.
