Initial Consultation  

I offer an initial free telephone consultation. This is to give you the chance to see if I am the right therapist for you and if you would feel comfortable to work with me. It also gives me the chance to understand your issues and how we might work together. 
 
My working week is flexible and I know that once you have decided to go ahead with therapy it is important to get started as soon as possible. 

Expectations  

Working together, the goal is to facilitate some kind of positive change or shift in what is going on for you. Therapy can cause anxiety and the feeling of vulnerability when changes or a realisation takes place. Often clients feel that therapy is becoming 'too much'. However, this is quite natural and is just the process of change taking place and your thought patterns trying to adapt to a different way or thinking. 
 
Your unconscious and subconscious mind have worked together for a long time, repeating old patterns to ensure your survival. Old habits will keep pulling you back to historic thinking which is where it feels safe and comfortable no matter how misguided, painful and unhelpful the results may be to your personal life. This is a natural process but in a safe and supported environment you can begin to explore a new way of thinking that can be healthier and more fulfilling for you. 

How counselling can help:  

When consumed by stress, anxiety or depression, we often feel a sense of hopelessness. Counselling can help you regain a sense of clarity and autonomy, which may help you to get the best out of your life. 
 
Nobody knows you better than you know yourself but sometimes the stresses of everyday life and relationships can consume us, make us feel anxious and its hard to get a sense of who we are and what we want in life. I can offer the time and space that you need to explore what is troubling you and examine what it is that you really want out of your life or the situation you are in. 
To focus all your conscious thoughts on negative things, you will give your subconscious the opportunity to deliver all those thoughts and feelings associated with that type of thinking. Unfortunately, those feelings then become a reality in our everyday lives resulting in depression, anxiety and stress. 
 
The one power and freedom we all actually have under any circumstances is to control our own thoughts. We have control and choice in how we wish to respond to those thoughts.
