FAQs

Why see a Counsellor/ Psychotherapist?

Counselling / psychotherapy offers you the opportunity to talk about social, emotional, or behavioural problems that are either causing you distress or interfering with your day-to-day life.

Counsellors and psychotherapists are trained professionals who can respond to your concerns in an objective and non-judgmental manner. We provide a safe forum for you to speak freely, knowing that what is shared will be kept private and confidential.

There are many reasons for pursuing personal or psychological counselling or psychotherapy. Some of the most common problems for which individuals seek help include the following:

  • Family conflicts or relationship problems
  • Procrastination and other self-defeating behaviours/habits
  • Issues of grief, loss and bereavement
  • Difficulty managing stress
  • Coping with traumatic events
  • Domestic abuse or sexual assault
  • Depression or lack of motivation
  • Anxiety or acute panic attacks
  • Problems with alcohol or other drugs
  • Issues with eating behaviour and/or negative body image

What are the potential benefits of Counselling and Psychotherapy?

With the help of counselling, you can view your thoughts from a different perspective. It is a cathartic experience, a time set aside to confront your feelings in a non-judgmental and non-threatening setting. It helps you to think, feel, and respond more effectively at home, at work and in social situations.

Some of the benefits are:

  • Improved emotional and psychological resilience
  • Improved relationships
  • Recovery from trauma or abuse
  • Improved work satisfaction
  • Greater self-acceptance and self-esteem
  • Ability to change self-defeating behaviours/habits
  • Communicate with others in an easier and more constructive way
  • Develop effective coping strategies
  • Strengthen self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Understand thoughts, and feelings that cause difficulties and/or distress
  • Taking control back of your life
  • Accept possibility for change
  • Make healthy life choices
  • Welcome possible solutions
  • Examine the impact of change and loss
  • Better expression and management of emotions, including anger
  • Relief from depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions
  • Increased confidence and decision-making skills
  • Ability to manage stress effectively
  • Improved problem-solving and conflict resolution abilities

Many of these individuals have been referred by Healthy Minds, Family Hubs and various other services and organisations through a network of social workers, GP’s and referrals from satisfied clients.

Most common feedback I get from my clients is that they have experienced a feeling of getting unstuck, authenticity and improved quality of life. As well as a positive shift in mindset, physical health, mental well being leaving them with a sense of empowerment.

My approach recognises that some life experiences can make us feel unwell and stop us from fulfilling our full potential.

I believe the best way to resolve our problems is to explore our feelings and thoughts in a safe counselling relationship,with someone you can trust . By exploring your feelings together, we can make sense of them. Working together we can move forward in a positive way and implement strategies to help you in the future.

I have extensive experience of providing support with a variety of situations including:

Bereavement, addictions, depression, anxiety, low mood, family issues, couples, divorce and anger management.

Aspiring Futures aims are very much aligned to my own beliefs and goals. That is to support individuals to depend less on health services, improve their wellbeing and live their best lives.
