Individual Counselling Service

People come to individual counseling to talk about different aspects of their lives and difficulties they may be having in solving some of their problems.

Individual counselling offers a safe, reliable and confidential setting. It provides a relationship in which you can explore difficulties and their links with early experience, which can be outside conscious awareness, discover more appropriate ways of coping and bring about desired changes in your thinking, feeling and behaviour.
Individual counselling offers a powerful setting for the disclosure of secrets, emotions and experiences that may be difficult to discuss. As the relationship between the client and counsellor develops, therapy can provide a framework where one can create the life they desire. The unfolding of past stories, events, feelings and traumas, with current emotions, patterns, stressors and events enables us to integrate the past with the present. There is truly something very healing that occurs when someone can feel understood in an atmosphere of safety and acceptance.
The aim of individual therapy is to work with you to identify exactly what might be interfering with the way you wish to lead your life, or what is preventing you from feeling self-respect, self-worth and self-satisfaction. Once we have identified what the issue(s) are and the underlying causes of the issue(s) we can begin to focus on how to change your symptoms into solutions. Bear in mind that each client and their issues are different and I will choose the best counselling approach or combination of approaches to suit your needs and personality.
