Counselling is talking therapy.
The counselling sessions take place with a professional counsellor/psychotherapist.
The sessions are confidential and offer you the opportunity to talk and describe what’s going on in your life.
You may have issues, problems or obstacles causing you to feel anxious, low in mood or stressed. You can share any issues, worries and concerns you have with your counsellor to work through together.
The role of a counsellor
A professional counsellor will support you to better understand yourself and your situation. They will support you to find a way through challenging times and to work through difficult emotions.
Working with a counsellor can lead to having greater level of self-awareness, an increase in confidence and a feeling of self-empowerment.
You can choose between having a single session, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months, or for a longer period that lasts for several months or years.
It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel the benefits with the support of your therapist.
Counselling with me
The counselling offered with me is person-centred, which means that I work with you, offering a space of warmth, non-judgement and care. I can help you to navigate the emotional distress, which can lead to positive changes in your life.
What’s going on for you?
Life is complicated and you might feel emotionally vulnerable at times, so it is most important that you find a counsellor who you feel comfortable talking to.
If you feel that you have low self-esteem or low self-worth, then talking things through can help to make sense of your emotions and increase your confidence.
You may be experiencing anxiety or depression due to the pandemic or other events in your life that have caused you to feel low in mood or distressed.
What can counselling ‘do’?
Counselling can help you to self-regulate your emotional reaction to challenging life events. This can have a positive effect on your psychological and physiological well-being.
Maybe, you just don’t feel ‘right’ and you can’t put your finger on what’s going on for you?
Counselling can help you to find direction, to better understand yourself and to feel more fulfilled with life, work or family matters.
Taking the next step
Sadly, stigma still exists about counselling/psychotherapy/talking therapy but simply put, there may be times in your life when you feel that you need some extra support and a space to unload and unburden yourself.
I offer face-to-face counselling in Sheringham, North Walsham and Norwich. I also offer online counselling to people across the U.K.
