You might feel worried or unsure about starting counselling 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.
"I was very hesitant about counselling when I approached Katy, but from the beginning of our very first conversation, her kind and thoughtful manner made me feel very comfortable, and made it easy to be open and honest while talking to her". M.D.
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. This 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.
"I felt comfortable speaking openly and honestly about anything I wished without feeling judged and ultimately waalked away from the sessions feeling happier in myself. Counselling has given me a wide range of techniques I can use when calming anxiety which have been hugely effective and useful". H.S.
As a counsellor, I was drawn into therapeutic world having supported young people with a variety of special needs 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.
