What Is Counselling?

There are many ways to describe what happens in a therapy session but to keep it simple one way of looking at the process is that it is a means of making a difference to your health and well being when life or circumstances spiral out of control. Counseling can change perceptions, feelings, and thoughts. Life can sometimes deal us very difficult things to deal with and finding someone who can help is essential.

Counseling entails:

• An initial assessment to determine what is wrong and what can be done about it

• Exploration of the problem

• Ways of changing thinking, feeling and behaviours

• Support and encouragement

• Examinining what can sabotage or halt the recovery process

• An introduction to what is available to support and help going forward

How Can I Help?

I offer a bespoke treatment planning service, which will be worked out with you at our first meeting.  The minimum length of treatment is six sessions.  Many people opt for more sessions, of course, but six sessions will give you enough time to either find out what has been going wrong and discover solutions or to opt into a more comprehensive look at your life and problems.  I specialize in addiction treatment but use an eclectic approach, bringing into treatment aspects of Cognitive behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy as well as using Emotional Freedom Techniques if required.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT is used as a technique to shift trauma and stress, both physical and emotional from the body.  It uses a system described as acupuncture without needles.  It is a simple effective tool which can be taught quickly and will bring results if used.  It can help in many instances with both big or small trauma, with panic attacks, with phobias of all sorts.  I have found it particularly helpful with fear of public speaking, which I need to do for my job at times.  

If you need in-patient treatment, I can also help you access this option. The team at the clinic will offer you an independent assessment of your needs.
