What to expect… individuals and couples…

Your counsellor or psychotherapist is fully trained to identify issues and help you understand and resolve troubles for your benefit. Ideally you will feel confident your therapist is trustworthy (your details kept confidental) and qualified (trained in the area you are enquiring about) and a member of a professional body that oversees your therapist’s ongoing professional development, appropriate standards of conduct and performance.

Socrates (355BC) said it all: “Know yourself. An unexamined life is not worth living.”

INTERVIEW YOUR THERAPIST: ask for information about qualifications and how you will be treated. This is mandatory: when you are doing anything in your life find out what you will get.

Call to find out about counselling. SEND your number to me and I can call you back. It is your responsibility is to find a therapist that suits you. You do have a choice. You are always the most important person in every room and my goal is to provide you with skills and resources to be the expert of your life. You know more about your life and experience than anyone else.


Switch on your brain…

…change your mind, find your way. When you go to see a counsellor the therapeutic process attempts to establish understandings between thought and emotions, ideas and possibilities, allowing new brain connections to help you live more effectively.

Balancing feelings, ideas and actions through individual, personal and relationship counselling that is effective, therapeutic and lasting. Counselling and psychotherapy that is helpful because it is individually tailored to suit you — your interests, your perspectives and your needs.
