Counselling can be helpful if you are dealing with feelings of sadness, anxiousness or anger. These feelings are a natural part of the human experience — so we don’t try to remove them. Instead we work towards an integrated emotional life, where negative emotions work alongside feelings of happiness, accomplishment and purposefulness.
Beginning a new counselling relationship can feel a little daunting, even for those who have spent time with a counsellor before. Research has shown that the most important factor in achieving a positive result from counselling is that you feel comfortable talking to your counsellor.
To make things a little easier , we offer an introductory session where you sit down with your potential counsellor for 30 minutes so you can decide how comfortable you feel talking to them. This time is also used to discuss what it is that you want out of counselling and to set some goals for future sessions should you choose to continue.
