I see adults, in person, from aged 18 and upwards who are experiencing distress, confusion or a need to change something in their lives. 

I've had counselling myself so I know it can be a bit overwhelming when there are so many counsellors and therapists to choose from, offering a range of different kinds of therapies. 

 

You might have questions going around in your mind, such as...What type of counselling do I need?...Will they be able to help me?...Will me or my issue be judged? 

​There are lots of different kinds of talking therapy and different kinds of therapists but ultimately it should feel safe, supportive and non-judgemental

 

The relationship you have with your counsellor is, as shown by studies, to have a significant impact on the benefit of therapy. There are other factors such as the counsellor's experience, type of therapy they offer and the skill of the counsellor but ultimately, if you don't feel comfortable with your counsellor all of the other factors can pale into insignificance! 

 

To put it simply, counselling really works best if you feel comfortable and safe enough with your counsellor to share your worries. A skilled and empathic counsellor should help you to do that.
