Counselling isn’t somebody offering advice or telling you what you should do, it is about you finding your own solutions and fulfilling your true potential, becoming more self-aware and comfortable in your own skin.
In my experience it is difficult to move forward if you don’t know where you are starting from:
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change" - Carl Rogers
My role as a person-centred counsellor is to be a trusted companion and a support when the going gets tough. It is a collaborative process in which we work together to address the challenges you are facing.
Counselling can be difficult and uncomfortable at times but it can also be fantastically rewarding and liberating.
For more general information about counselling the BACP web-site is a great resource.
