Key Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

Hello and welcome to my profile, thank you for gifting me a moment of your time! First, allow me tell you a little about myself and then I will explain one common therapeutic theory and explain how I offer help or assistance for my clients.

Personally, I have had to deal with and overcome many issues, from self confidence/esteem to self harm which have all stemmed from feelings of persecution, bullying or anxiety, because of either my sexuality or lifestyle choices.

I am still dealing with some of these issues, and they may pop their head up every so often just to remind me that it is always a constant battle. I became a fully qualified counsellor so that I would be available to assist people in finding resolution to the difficulties that they, like me, may be facing. 

One of the best therapeutic approaches is known as Person Centred Therapy, which gives the client a great deal of power and control over the speed and direction of their treatment.

I liken it to imagine being in a car together heading for the destination you desire, with you in the driving seat and in control. This means that we only go as fast or as directly as you wish, and the trip doesn't end until you reach your goal - everything is at your pace.

Do you perhaps feel lost or lacking direction in the journey through life? Do you sometimes find it hard to see which way to turn or a clear path forward? Allow me to be your torchlight and shine the light back into your life, through any negativity or suffering you may be enduring, to find your path.

Everybody can benefit from having support; being able to talk freely and have someone truly and actively listen to you, to help share the weight of the burdens that you feel pressured by.

Just having that someone to talk to can help bring about a spark in the darkness, or maybe even reveal a whole new and totally unexpected horizon.

Counselling is a joint partnership between therapist and client, it has been scientifically proven that it is the therapeutic relationship - the strength of the alliance between client and therapist which determines the level of success.

My goal will be to empower you to feel comfortable and relaxed when looking behind at whatever may have happened in the past, standing strong along side you during whatever current difficulties are going on, and most very importantly the investment in empowering your future with determination, enthusiasm, confidence and self-assurance.
