What's worrying You?
Hello, I'm Elise!
I presume that you're here because you are contemplating starting some personal counselling.
I know that this can be quite daunting, but this is the first step. Mental health issues can have a profound impact on us, affecting our behaviour, thoughts and feelings.
We all have mental health, which affects our daily life and causes worry. It is essential to find the correct support and professional guidance, finding what works best for you.
Practical professional support can help in managing daily worries, stresses and more serious long term issues. It is vital that you receive the correct information and support and know that you are not alone.
I'm currently offering sessions via Zoom or Skype during the lockdown, and I can offer counselling support if you're suffering from issues related to COVID-19.
People explore therapy because they are experiencing difficulties and distress in their lives. They may feel isolated; even if they have support from family and friends, they may find it challenging to open up. It is often easier to talk to an independent person and not someone they know.
When choosing to have therapy, you may not be in crisis. You may be feeling underlying feelings of dissatisfaction of life.
Counselling is a process we seek when we want to change something in our lives. We all strive to be self-aware, content, have peace and to think and feel emotions with clarity and understanding.
Talking therapies help people to come to terms and overcome their problems. It enables people to discuss their painful feelings and issues confidentially and in a safe environment.
Why therapy and
what is counselling?
A counsellor has skills to encourage you to open up and talk about what’s bothering you. To ease you in uncovering the causes of your worries and to find ways of coping. The counsellor, therefore, is not there to tell you what to do.
