What a counselling journey might be like
Accessing the immense wisdom and resources you hold within is a big part of the work, along with exploring and examining fears, obstacles and challenges, which are all part of life's journey. You are not alone, and believe me when I say, I truly believe you hold the key to your own healing and happiness. Together we will discover the pathway that leads you there!
Hello and welcome to awareness therapy, compassion focused therapy informed through mindfulness. Are you experiencing loneliness, stress, burnout or high self-criticism. Then developing yourself in compassion offers new ways to understand and relate to yourself, others and challenging situations. Our brains are developed to identify danger and threats and this function is extremely active in today’s world. It’s power to override our emotions is one of its most effective features, even positive ones. It is because of this function that you are actually here today, it's primary function is self protection and self preservation. As you can imagine with such a powerful system, the potential for internal emotional and cognitive conflict is high. Which is why so many of us run into difficulties with stress, phobias, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, anger and don’t know what to do or where to turn.
Are you currently experiencing issues in your life that seem too heavy to manage, maybe feeling extremely stressed or you feel you are heading towards emotional burnout, seeking help with this early is a very wise decision. Make contact today or arrange a callback using the link below.
My counselling approach is very person-centred, focused on developing a compassionate perspective and practice, informed by mindfulness that ultimately focuses on acceptance, positive self supportive attitudes and self care. Based on contemporary cognitive behaviour therapy.
Everyone should have access to therapy regardless of financial situation. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, we can negotiate, so don’t worry, you won't be turned away.
