While the counselling journey is not about being ‘fixed’ by a professional, there are a number of reasons why people might be drawn to a counselling relationship.

Counselling can be hugely beneficial to those who:

  • Have relationship problems
  • Struggle to cope with stress, depression or anxiety
  • Have gone through a bereavement
  • Battle with an eating disorder
  • Experience low self-esteem and meaninglessness
  • Suffer panic attacks
  • Live with a serious mental or physical illness
  • Require anger management
  • Have experienced sexual, physical or psychological abuse

The counselling relationship offers people from any background a safe, calm and confidential place to talk and journey through some of life’s most challenging, and sometimes hidden issues.

You may have been struggling alone for years with one or more of the issues above, or maybe you’ve been encouraged to seek counselling many times before. Either way, we are rarely able to resolve our personal issues alone, which is where the counselling relationship can be pivotal in bringing about lasting change.

What you can expect from GLC

The counselling relationship I practice seeks to include:

  • A professional and experienced service
  • Confidentiality and safety
  • Empathy
  • Non-judgemental acceptance
  • Respect and understanding
  • Unconditional positive regard
  • Practical coping strategies
  • Active listening

Therapy sessions last for 50 minutes, and take place in my private counselling studio room.

Taking the first step

Perhaps the most challenging part of the counselling relationship is making the first appointment. I know from personal experience that it is difficult to reach out for help, which is why I offer a free consultation session so you can feel able to make a fully informed decision about your own therapeutic journey.

Starting your journey

If after a consultation session you decide to continue with GLC counselling, we will work through and sign a contract together to protect your safety, confidentiality and to establish a mutual understanding of our relationship. I advise weekly sessions, and ask clients to allow the relationship to last as long as they deem it appropriate, useful and meaningful in order for them to discover change.
