Counselling can help provide the space needed to sort through thoughts and feelings when feeling lost, stuck or overwhelmed. At times in life we can all experience issues in relationships loss and bereavements, difficult decisions, old emotional pain, or general feelings of depression and anxiety. Talking to a counsellor can help you develop clarity, find your own answers, and grow in confidence and self-awareness.
Person-centred counselling is an approach that puts an empathic, compassionate and non-judgemental connection between counsellor and client at the heart of the therapeutic experience. It aims to create a space in which you can explore your feelings and experiences, and develop greater acceptance and trust in yourself. The counsellor respects that you are your own expert, and strives to see the world from your point of view, staying alongside you as you explore how you feel.
In focusing-oriented therapy awareness is brought to the body and the still-forming sense of what can’t quite yet be put into words. It can help develop a way of connecting to what it happening for us right now, and we can learn to check in with our inner felt sense of what is right for us.
