A safe space to experience

experience

I will accompany you on your search to gain more understanding of your experience.

This may involve noticing how different parts of yourself can show up in your life: such as a vulnerable parts of you, managing parts of you that cope and get on with daily life, parts of you that may be self-critical, or playful, or fire-fighting parts of you that may seek comfort, distraction and escape.

Any parts of your inner experience, and of your experience of being in the world and with others that you are struggling with, can be worked with in a supportive environment – at the pace and depth that is right for you.


A safe space to express

express

You don’t have to put on a ‘brave face’ or focus on others’ needs in the therapy room.

In this confidential setting, we can notice your needs and put them first. Your voice and your story will be listened to, and heard.

This is a place where you can choose to share and express thoughts and feelings, hopes and fears, that may have felt too difficult, embarrassing or shameful to look at alone.


A safe space to explore

explore

We can explore what’s brought you here in a spirit of curiosity and compassion.

Looking at and understanding the choices and coping strategies that were available to you in the past, we can discover what choices and ways of coping could be available to you now.

Noticing what is meaningful to you, we will explore your rich inner life, with it’s images, humour, dreams and intuition. 


experiment

We can discover what resources, inspires and grounds you, giving you more sense of connection, and vitality.

Together we can experiment with ways to embed these elements more firmly into your life, and recognise any barriers you may face. This makes counselling a brave as well as a safe space – a place where you can try out doing things differently.

If we meet difficulties along the way, experimenting with resolving them in sessions, may translate into resolving challenges in your life outside.


A safe space to empower

empower

We can investigate obstacles that get in the way of your gaining more trust in your judgement and experience. 

Finding ways in your sessions to harness your resources to understand where these obstacles are coming from and to unburden yourself from them , can help to strengthen your sense of self-worth, and connect you to a more whole and grounded sense of Self in which all parts of you can be integrated.

When ready to end your counselling, you may feel more empowered to move on – with a little less judgement of, and more compassion for yourself.
