Can Counselling/Therapy help?
More and more people are becoming aware of the benefits of counselling/therapy. Firstly, it gives you an opportunity to talk about yourself. This is a two-way conversation but the focus is on you.
You will be encouraged to talk about whatever is important to you – your hopes, your fears, your goals, your triumphs and your difficulties.
You will be helped to achieve a better understanding of yourself and your situation. Then you will be able to identify anything you would like to change or work on and you will be helped with this.
Our Counselling/Therapy sessions
You will be encouraged to talk over your problems with someone who is listening in a supportive and understanding way. This will help you clarify your thoughts and feelings and feel better about yourself. You will be helped to look more deeply into your issues and why they are causing you such problems.
You can be helped to come to terms with events from earlier in life and to overcome emotions which are rooted in past traumas or experiences.
You can be helped to build confidence in yourself, make better decisions, improve your coping strategies, work on your goals and to feel happier about yourself and your life.
Although I've talked a lot with family and friends, I found there's real value in talking with someone that you have no previous connection with. Alicia's style has worked very well for me because she's careful to find a balance between being hands-off while also gently nudging me when needed.
Therapy was amazing. I was in a dark place. I came to therapy and very quickly turned a corner. Alicia helped me to see things differently. Talking with her is very calming. I feel like a new woman.
