What can I talk about?
People come to counselling for many reasons. Some use this space to:
express feelings or thoughts that they don’t feel able to express anywhere else
work out how they feel and what they think about important events or situations in their life
explore a problem and perhaps the different options they have for dealing with that problem
take time out from difficult situations or feelings
learn better ways for coping with difficult emotions or situation
Having someone to talk to who isn't directly involved in your life can allow you to consider where your emotions and thoughts are coming from, and give you permission to express yourself without worrying about others. As your counsellor, I will listen without making judgements, accept your feelings, and support you in any changes you might wish to make. Having this chance to explore your emotions, thoughts and options can help you to re-connect with your strengths.
