You might feel worried or unsure about starting psychotherapy and sometimes just making the decision to ask for help can feel like a big, scary step. Counselling can help you become more in touch with yourself and the relationships that are important to you. It can help you shed light on why you are feeling the way you are and work towards any desired changes.
"Growing up around a lot of unpredictability, Katy's constant understanding and calm approach was very soothing to me. My regular sessions became a structured and safe experience where I was able to talk about whatever I needed to on that day." E.P
When you tell me about you, it helps me understand what it is like being you. I am not a friend or a family member; I am here to listen to you as it comes; unfiltered and without judgement. Part of my role is to reflect back what I see and hear and to offer a different perspective - so you can see with fresh eyes. This insight can help you see patterns or coping mechanisms that may not be helpful to you now. The development of this self awareness can be the catalyst to change. You can move from a place of feeling anxious, sad, confused or stuck, to finding some clarity on why you got here and together we can explore how you would like that to be different.
"Counselling has helped as I feel it gave me a whole different perspective on things. It showed me that it was ok to feel how I felt and remind me how much I needed to talk to others and be open." E.B
As a counsellor, I was drawn into psychotherapy having supported young people with a variety of special needs, including autism and Asperger’s, for 10 years. I wanted to nurture the unique and special nature of that one to one relationship. I am passionate about the benefits of talking therapy. In my mind, there is nothing more powerful than two people sitting opposite each other in a room; one person being truly listened to, without judgement or criticism.
