How to explain what counselling is... If you're holding a cup of coffee and somebody accidentally bumps into you, you will most likely spill a drop or two, or depending on the bump impact a few spoonfuls or more. If there had been tea or something else in your cup, the result would be the same. Your emotions and feelings are like the coffee, because sometimes when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen to us all) whatever is inside your cup will spill out. Sometimes life can be easier until you get bumped.....but then you may need somebody to talk to, this is where counselling can help.

Welcome to my profile. Reaching out for support is a courageous first step towards taking charge of your life which shows your awareness that something needs to change and deserves to be celebrated. Seeking professional support can be daunting as well as exciting as you realise that things can and will change in the future for the better.

I provide a safe and confidential space in which to explore these issues.

There can be many reasons to seek counselling: it may be a current issue, a general feeling of mental unease, a past trauma that is still troubling you or perhaps a sense of wanting to know yourself better. Whatever is causing you unease at the moment we will explore and work through. There will be a curiosity of what may be unconsciously affecting you from your early years and the relationships you had. I am experienced in working with many different areas including bereavement, anxiety, family issues and feeling low. Perhaps you are looking to explore who you are and have a better understanding of yourself.

Through my counselling training, work and life experiences, I have realised that every person and every problem is unique. Counselling protects your autonomy and allows you to feel that you are being listened to and valued; that your issues are real and important but significantly they can be worked through and there is a way to move on. It gives you a space which is confidential, secure and supportive whatever the issue whether it's a problem with a relationship or the devastation of grief. I see my clients as valuable human beings who are temporarily lost and confused and my job is to help them find clarity and hope.

My aim is to enable clients to find ways to feel peaceful, find courage and to overcome fears and challenges. Clients may wish to move on from unhelpful thinking or patterns of living , overcome anxiety and live a more enjoyable life . Some clients may not yet know what they want but accept that a change is needed . Starting counselling can be a big step and the decision can come from necessity , pain or simply a desire to see how things could be different. I understand that it can feel like a big step into unknown territory and I will do everything possible to help you feel comfortable with the process.

I am passionate in helping individuals and couples to take the right steps for them. I support my clients, to make a difference or find an acceptance in their life. I work with my clients in exploring the difficulties fears re experiencing and we work to gain an understanding of thoughts and feelings. Their emotional disturbance can be discussed and put in to perspective to help make changes to the unhealthy thought or behavioural patterns. Sometimes, addressing where the negative beliefs have originated from, helps to find the positive changes and overcomes the difficulties. Giving my clients a new awareness, growth and belief.

From time to time we all feel sad, anxious, helpless, irritable, lack motivation and have low self esteem. Life is always a challenge for most of us; most emotions are painful, both physically and psychologically. Without help our mood can worsen, life becomes joyless , causing us to loose hope and withdraw from people. It might be the way you think about and treat yourself that has brought you here. Maybe you would like to explore areas of your life that are causing you levels of distress. Are you struggling with relationships? Trying to move on from abuse? Or dealing with loss? Dealing with conflict at work might be stressful.

Codependency Counsellors

What therapy types help with codependency problems?

Both couples and family therapy and cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) can help with the relationship difficulties referred to as codependency. Such problems typically include inappropriate feelings of responsibility for a loved one’s destructive behavior, irrational patterns of thinking about such behavior, and family interaction patterns in which the needs of one troubled member override the needs of others in a household.

What happens in therapy for codependency?

Spouses and family members learn and practice how to interact and support each other in a healthy way without sacrificing their own needs or well-being. They learn the limits of their responsibility for their loved ones and correct faulty patterns of thinking and feeling that underlie codependent behavior. Individuals may be encouraged to nurture an array of social relationships and to cultivate their own talents and interests so that they develop a healthy sense of self outside the family.

How does therapy help a person or couple overcome codependency?

Therapy helps people establish healthy ways of being in a relationship. Spouses and family members learn how to nurture and support one another without sacrificing their own needs or allowing the needs of one person to dominate the dynamic. Individuals learn how to say no and set boundaries, and how to maintain their own identity and self-esteem. Therapy helps people understand that they are not responsible for the feelings and actions of others. It also helps individuals deal with the turbulence that can come from living with a person suffering from such conditions as substance abuse and mental illness.

What is the goal of therapy for codependency?

One goal of therapy for codependency is to alleviate feelings of responsibility for and correct irrational patterns of thinking about loved ones whose behavioral problems override the needs of others in a household. Therapy helps people establish healthy boundaries of behavior and speak up for their own needs in a relationship. In addition, people learn how to maintain a healthy relationship, one in which both parties give and receive equally and are able to retain their own identity.
