Counselling involves a series of formal, weekly sessions to talk about your issues and feelings. Short term therapy typically involves 8 to 12 weekly sessions, longer term therapy can be for as long as you feel that you need to come. The sessions take place online; we will not be overheard or interrupted.
Therapy may involve talking about anything that you'd like to bring: life events, feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking, patterns of behaviour. I will listen, encourage and empathise, but I will also challenge you, to help you see more clearly or in a different way.
Counselling is not about giving advice or opinions, nor is it a friendly chat with a friend. I will help you to understand yourself better, and to find your own solutions to resolve or cope with your situation.
Once the current emergency is over, face-to-face physical sessions will resume at Mile End as an addition to the online option.
