COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY

”By exploring and understanding the origins and the potency of (the forces that reside in the depths of our soul) we not only become much better able to cope with them, but also gain a much deeper and more compassionate understanding of our fellow man"

Bruno Bettleheim

WHY COUNSELLING?

People come to counselling for many reasons, a few of which are outlined here.  We all experience difficulties in our lives from time to time.  Some people come for help with a current crisis such as a bereavement, or a relationship breakdown. Others come because they have a sense of unease or confusion, or they notice a pattern of behaviour that keeps repeating itself and they want to think about this.  Some come for help with specific conditions such as anxiety or depression. Some want to make changes in their lives or come because something has happened to them and they haven't reacted as they thought they might.  Counselling can help us to make sense of our lives and increase our understanding of ourselves and others.  This can lead to change and a greater sense of wellbeing over time.

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY FOR ADULTS AND YOUNG PEOPLE

I am a fully qualified, experienced counsellor working in Beaconsfield, Chalfont St Peter and the surrounding area. I work with adults and young people and offer both short term counselling and longer term, open ended therapy.

WHAT KIND OF COUNSELLING DO I OFFER?

I work from a psychodynamic perspective.  This way of working acknowledges that our lives may be impacted by past experiences as well as our present circumstances.  It pays attention to what might be going on within our minds as well as in our relationships. 

 

What this means is that I will listen without judgement to your thoughts and feelings, make links between them, offer observations and ask questions. This will feel different to talking to a friend, colleague or family member and you will have the opportunity to voice a range of ideas in a safe, confidential and compassionate environment.  Things can then be understood in new ways, providing relief from distress, and the opportunity for personal development and change.

 

The relationship between the therapist and client can be a rich source of insight and we might need to consider that together as well.
