What is Emotional Therapeutic Counselling?

I work with mainly adults who are suffering emotional turmoil in their lives. I use a range of gentle techniques to assist clients recognise and release painful feelings by working with the emotions rather than the mind. I believe the quality of our lives is influenced by our emotional health.
It is in this area that we will work, understanding and becoming aware of our thoughts, emotions and beliefs that fundamentally create our world, and all of this can change once we become aware of these patterns that are driving our behaviour, thinking and felt in our emotions.

What to Expect when Working with me:

With deep personal insight I develop genuine, strong and continuous relationships with my clients. I am warm and accepting of all my client's experiences and feelings. I listen with understanding, without judgement and help my clients find solutions from within. With a greater sense of hopefulness and personal power my clients are more able to resolve issues in an authentic way and develop their own goals with independence. I am empathetic, credible and skilled. Sometimes clients ask for some healing if this feels right, this can be added to our therapy sessions.. My aim is to foster a safe space to explore deep and difficult emotions.

One thing though we can always agree that there is a journey of discovery… and from this comes understanding which will bring inner peace… and a deeper knowing of who you are and your place on this planet.
The body and the mind/emotions are all intrinsically linked… often when we understand these links then healing and peace is the natural outcome… this is not just some idealist approach but all based on good science and philosophical ideals.
