What Happens in a Session?

I will listen to you without judgment and help you to explore your thinking, feelings, beliefs and behaviour around an issue, so that you feel safe and supported to experiment and make any changes you feel would be helpful at a pace that is right for you.

At the outset you may or may not have a clear idea of what specific changes you want to make; to begin with you may simply want to talk about how you are feeling, what’s happening for you right now and feel listened to and accepted – and that’s OK.

It will probably just feel like a conversation from your point of view, but in starting counselling, CBT or psychotherapy, you are embarking on a journey of discovery and change.

Along the way you may gain new and useful insights, discover new ways of thinking or feeling about your life experiences or relationships, experiment with new behaviours or learn new strategies to help you cope better with the challenges you face.
