Starting counselling or psychotherapy is often quite a scary prospect. You may already feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of counsellors available in your local area- what do the different qualifications and approaches mean? Who is most experienced? Who will be able to help me the best?!
Although there are many different types of counselling to choose from, research tells us that the most important factor in determining a successful client outcome is the quality of the therapeutic relationship (Norcross, 2002; Elkins, 2016; Martin et al, 2002). In a nutshell:
☑️ You are struggling with feelings of stress, anxiety, depression or trauma.
☑️ You know your problems inside out but can’t resolve them and feel stuck.
☑️ Your relationship isn’t going well and you don’t know how to repair things.
☑️ You find it a challenge to assert your needs (or maybe don’t even know what they are).
☑️ You’re doing your absolute best but can’t unlock your true potential.
☑️ You get easily overwhelmed and can’t seem to control your feelings.
I feel privileged to have worked with thousands of individuals and couples helping them to take important steps in improving their lives and relationships. Read some of theirfeedback here.
By seeing something in a new way or simply trying something different, it makes sense that the outcome will also be different. Therapy is about helping you broaden your current awareness and find the answers just outside your reach.
We all need a helping hand from time to time so let’s get started. I am trained to help you solve your problems.
