As a result of increased awareness of self and others comes a greater understanding of the situation and of yourself.
Then you are able to identify your own wants and needs that historically have likely been neglected. Consequently learning to value yourself more in turn leads to developing strategies for leading a positive life. In this way your voice is heard and your self worth recognised by self and others.
By recognising your abilities, you can then see the possibilities and have the insight to make decisions that bring about beneficial change.
In those situations over which you have no control such as bereavement and loss of a relationship this means coming to accept what cannot be changed. Therefore being better able to cope day to day and living more fully.
This work takes place in the privacy of my private counselling practice which is a safe, confidential and discreet environment for both individual and couples counselling. Conveniently located in central Southampton at Royal Mail House, Terminus Terrace there is parking located nearby.
My role is not to judge, criticise, take sides or tell an individual or couples what to do or not to do. Importantly my role is to work alongside you through your difficulties so as to support you finding those solutions and ways of being that empower and enhance your life.
You are the expert on yourself and I have expertise in counselling. In this way we come together as equal participants. This is a collaborative and active process. Working together to bring about positive change and to realise the best outcomes.
I am an experienced and qualified counsellor holding membership of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). working from my professional counselling and psychotherapy practice near to Ocean Village in Southampton
