What Benefits can Clients Expect?
My clients have quoted benefits over the years which are wide and varied. Some examples are listed below.
How Does it Work?
Counselling/Psychotherapy is about looking inside to figure out what is going on. By exploring and clarifying what exists in our inner and outer worlds, we can work through what we are going through, our thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Often it involves bringing to the surface emotions that have long been buried or "repressed". In surfacing these we can integrate them, new connections are formed in the brain and these enable us to navigate our emotions differently.
What Do I Do as a Counsellor?
I offer a safe, caring place where you can explore your thoughts and difficulties without judgement and without having someone’s views imposed upon you. My professional training means I can support and challenge you differently to how a friend or family member might. I offer warm, acceptance and understanding and through building an authentic, trusting relationship, counselling acts to facilitate change and often an inner process of growth.
What is My Experience?
I have worked at Metanoia and at Ealing Abbey Counselling Service,both in Ealing. In total, I have been working with counselling clients since 2008.
What is the Difference between Counselling and Psychotherapy?
Counselling often involves us working together to find present day solutions to current problems. I help you clarify where you are and where you want to get to and then how to move ahead. The work is often more short term lasting a number of weeks or months. In psychotherapy I pay far more attention to what has shaped you from the past. People who want to make long lasting changes work for more than a few months.
