Counselling has the capacity to change and enrich lives. It is not necessarily an easy process; it can take some time to build enough trust in the therapeutic process to feel safe enough to begin the process of discussing long- held, or difficult experiences and feelings.
I recognise that people may feel vulnerable sharing very deeply held issues and that undertaking counselling sessions can at times raise complex and challenging feelings. It is important for me to work attentively and sensitively at a pace that feels right for you.
Clients have told me that they have often avoided sharing their concerns with those closest to them out of fear of worrying or burdening them, so they have held things in, often for many years. It can be freeing to speak with a counsellor you know will accept and respect you.
