Counselling: Further information

In my view one of the roles of counselling is that of enabling someone to become more authentically themselves, and less driven by external conditioning. Counselling helps people to become clearer about who they are and what urges them to make the choices they make. They may continue to make a particular choice, but they can then do so with greater understanding, knowing why and what part it plays in their life experience. Counselling brings the possibility of a genuine freedom to choose as you become more aware of your choices.

Here are some situations in which you may wish to consider counselling:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Feelings of vulnerability
  • Isolation
  • Loneliness
  • Making difficult decisions
  • Attempting to make changes in your life
  • Confidence and self esteem
  • Loss of identity
  • Finding meaning in your life
  • Jealousy
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Grief -  pets or people
  • Loss of your relationship, career, health, and other endings
  • Addictions
  • Unhelpful habits
  • Abuse issues
  • A desire to feel connected to others
  • A wish to get heard
  • A need to be more assertive
How much and how often?

Please contact me for my fees. Each session is an hour, and we would generally meet weekly or fortnightly. You can gauge as we go along how many sessions you would like. Some people come for a few sessions to work on a particular issue and others come for months. It is entirely individual.
