Free 20-minute initial consultation

This can be by telephone or Zoom and allows you to share why you are seeking support and to ask any questions you may have.

Decide if we are a good fit

An initial 20 minute consultation can be followed by an initial 50 minute counselling session and at the end of this we can decide if we are a good fit. The therapeutic relationship is key to successful outcomes in counselling so it is important that we feel comfortable working together.

Common questions and concerns

Is my problem or issue bad enough to need counselling?

If an issue is bothering you or you would just like to reflect on where you are in life right now with a non-judgemental, supportive professional then counselling is for you.  You do not need to be going through a major bereavement, marriage break up or significant trauma to be deemed “worthy” or deserving of counselling; it is healthy to explore your life, experiences and patterns of behaviour to see if there is anything that be changed or tweaked to make your life even just a little more fulfilling and authentic.

Here’s a helpful article to read to help you decide and don’t hesitate to contact me for an initial discussion:

How is counselling different to talking with a friend or family member?

Counselling is unique in that the whole 50-minute session each week is given over to you – your issues, concerns, feelings, and experiences, unlike a conversation with a family member or friends where they will want to share their issues, feelings, and experiences as well. Friends and family can be judgemental and may want to give you advice or tell you exactly what to do.  A counsellor will help you explore your issue with no judgement, warmth, and empathy to help you find your own way through as this builds emotional resilience and empowerment, leading you to place greater trust in yourself. You are best placed to know what is right for you.

What’s the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a specific approach in counselling which places a large emphasis on looking back at your childhood and earliest life experiences to consider how these shape your current thought and behaviour patterns.  It also looks at defence mechanisms you may have developed over time. Counselling may draw on psychodynamic approaches but may also use other counselling models as well in an integrative way to best meet the needs of the client.  This is my approach and I am very much guided by what you need or works best for you.

Will I feel worse before I feel better?

Counselling may tap into deep and painful emotions and experiences that you have been holding on to, sometimes for many years.  It can bring old wounds into the light which may feel difficult but research shows that being able to label and feel painful emotions helps us to heal, grow and move forwards so yes it could be that sessions may be painful and challenging at times, depending on the material you bring.

What if I feel it’s not working or making any difference?

Just be honest and tell me.  This way we can discuss why this might be and find the best way forward. It might open up a more honest conversation between us that helps us to move on or we may decide that a parting of ways or a referral onwards is the best step.

Will you give me advice and tell me what to do?

My key approach in counselling is a person-centred one, where the core belief is that a person knows what is best for them and can find a way through their difficulties if provided with the right conditions. These conditions are created in the counselling room, giving you the time, space, and confidence to explore issues with a supportive companion. I will not tell you what to do, but rather through exploration of the issues you bring, your way forward will become clearer to you.  

How do counselling sessions work?

As a client, the 50 minutes is entirely yours to bring any issues, concerns, past or present experiences and feelings that are troubling you. It’s usually a good idea to have a few issues in your mind that you want to explore during the session. See this helpful article for further information.
