What To Expect

What I will do for you:

  • help you feel better after every session.
  • quickly help with anxiety problems and teach you to relax deeply
  • quickly help with trauma (PTSD) or fear related symptoms
  • give advice if needed or asked for
  • not use jargon or 'psychobabble' or tell you that counselling or psychotherapy has to be 'painful'
  • not dwell unduly on the past, and help you design a more desired future
  • be supportive when difficult feelings emerge, but will not encourage you to get emotional beyond the normal need to 'let go' of any bottled up feelings
  • may assist you to develop your social skills so that your needs for affection, friendship, fun, intimacy, connection to the wider community etc. can be better fulfilled
  • help you to draw and build on your own resources (which may prove greater than you thought)
  • be considerate of the effects of counselling on the people close to you
  • help you think about your problems in new and more empowering ways
  • use a wide range of techniques as appropriate
  • may ask you to do things between sessions to enhance your therapy journey
  • take as few sessions as possible
