Counselling and Psychotherapy Services

I provide specialist counselling services for children, teenagers and couples and families and individuals. Please take a moment to read this blog if you are considering counselling and feel free to drop me a line if you have any counselling related questions.

Sometimes we need help to feel better and it can feel confusing and frustrating that we cannot fix ourselves. If you know you are unhappy and you know how you came to think and feel the way you do but you seem unable to make any changes then you are not on your own. Many of us have this experience of seemingly knowing the answer but being unable to action.

There can be many reasons for this “stuckness” and usually it takes more than understanding it to make the emotional change you want to feel.

We build our lives Today using the understanding of the world we had Yesterday. However, unless we allow ourselves to unpick what we feel, and unless we allow ourselves discover how we came to feel it, we can run the risk of using a way of being that comes from an age gone by and that is no longer relevant in our lives today.

Good counselling is more than just about taking an overview of your past to find out where key times and places are identified and reviewed. It is a place where Today is valued as the most important resource you have, where you learn through being shown and given, how to heal yourself and how to sooth yourself in ways that are right for you.

If you have found this blog useful and would like to find out what counselling can do for you or someone you care about then why not get in touch with me and we can speak about counselling and the other courses of action open to you. Across Bournemouth and Poole I have enabled young people, couples and families and individuals to understand what is happening for them and together we have created a better life.
