How Might Counselling Help?
There are many reasons why someone might want to seek out counselling. Do personal relationships feel overwhelming? Are you feeling down because of family dynamics and family history? Sometimes it can be difficult to know what exactly is bothering us, but counselling is a space where we can explore these feelings. Counselling is not about offering practical advice but is about the inherent belief that empathy and truly listening to another person are essential to helping someone find emotional healing. Counsellors walk with you through your journey, offering reflective insights and a compassionate listening ear. You are more than welcome in the counselling space and I want to help you feel empowered in your life by first empowering you.
What is Person-Centred Counselling?
Person-centred counselling is a model of counselling that believes in helping others strengthen their inner capacity for personal growth and fulfillment. It is not about offering "techniques" for overcoming adversity, but an inherent belief that by strengthening the person from within, they will be better equipped to move forward in their healing journey and find fulfillment once again. As a Person-centred counsellor, I help my clients find that inner strength and empowerment by connecting with their authentic selves.
What Happens at a Counselling Appointment?
Counselling appointments last for 1 hour and take place at a consistent time and place. I believe that having a consistent and dedicated appointment time and location is important for clients to feel that the counselling space is theirs to freely embrace. My hope is that my clients feel they can bring themselves, as they are, into the counselling space week-to-week.
"As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has- or ever will have- something inside that is unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression." -- Fred Rogers
