What happens in a Counselling Session, how it could help you and what issues do people go to counselling with?

What happens in a Counselling Session?

We meet in the counselling room on a regular basis.
Here I will listen carefully to you, with respect and together we will work with whatever is causing you difficulty in your life. Generally this will be done by talking and paying attention to the body.

How can counselling help you?

Each person is individual and your experience of counselling will be unique to you. However here are some general outcomes that most clients experience:

  • Getting to know yourself in a new way - perhaps by gaining some acceptance of things that have been difficult
  • Becoming more self aware
  • Feeling a greater sense of control
  • Feeling both more positive and less overwhelmed by negatives
  • Being able to make decisions that support you
  • Experiencing being supported unconditionally
