DO I NEED COUNSELLING?

Counselling can be useful at all stages of life, whether you are recovering from a particular crisis or have more general feelings you want to work through. Most of us know when we have a problem but are often unable to find the answers on our own. Counselling helps you discover solutions, untangle emotions, and find peace with situations beyond your control.


WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A COUNSELLING SESSION?

As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I use a variety of counselling techniques to help you overcome your challenges. Just like people themselves, all situations are different, and therefore no two counselling sessions will be the same. I might just listen. Or I might ask you questions to help you navigate your thoughts. You are free to discuss whatever issues you have on the day of your session; we approach each session as a new opportunity to discover more about you.


WHAT ISSUES CAN YOU HELP ME WITH?

I am a certified grief counsellor and have a lot of experience as a palliative care nurse. However, I also help people work through anxiety, self esteem issues, depression, developmental traumas, LGBTQ issues and any other area that you feel you need to work on. Your treatment is always guided by you, with your mental wellbeing at the forefront of everything we do together.


HOW MANY COUNSELLING SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

Until we begin working together, we won’t know how many sessions you will need to find a resolution to your problem. During our initial consultation we will discuss your options and come up with a counselling plan to determine our short-term goals. As we near those goals you might feel that you need further help, or you might feel ready to move on.


DO YOU OFFER ONLINE ONLY COUNSELLING?

I find it much easier to form a connection with my clients face to face, which is why I look forward to welcoming you at my practice in Brighton. However, in person counselling might be challenging for some people due to distance or personal difficulties and I want to ensure that you are comfortable. Book a consultation today so we can discuss the options available to you.


WHAT IS YOUR COUNSELLING PROCESS?

There are several routes we can take, but follow largely the same steps:

  • Book initial consultation
  • If we decide that we’re a good fit, we book in the first session
  • During the first session we discuss: what we are trying to achieve (so that our sessions are purposeful) and we agree what our responsibilities are as both counsellor and client
  • We regularly assess progress together to make sure we remain on track
  • We might decide to extend counselling if additional issues arise, or we might even get to where you want to be faster than expected.
  • After counselling you will have gained valuable insights into yourself and have the tools you need to manage challenges going forward
