What can I expect from Therapy?

Therapy/Counselling/Psychotherapy is a place where you can talk about anything you want to. I will gently reflect back what you have told me if it is something I feel you need to have highlighted back to you.


I may also challenge what you say to me, this will further enable you to get a more thorough understanding of your problem. This will always be gentle unless you have requested you are to be strongly challenged.

Why is Counselling different from talking to friends and/or family?

As a therapist I am trained to listen very carefully to everything you say to me. I will not be judgemental, shocked or upset by something you tell me. Therapy is a safe space for you to be able to say anything without worry that it may be taken the wrong way or upset me.
