I am not what happened to me...

I am what I choose to become - Carl Jung

Counselling therapy in Saffron Walden, Essex

Welcome to my website which I hope you will find helpful if you are trying to make the decision whether to come for counselling. People seek counselling for many different reasons and as a counsellor I understand the decision to come is not always an easy one.

As we transition through the different stages and phases of life we can face many different challenges and these experiences can leave us struggling, anxious, feeling lost and wondering how we got there. These challenges can affect many areas of our life such as our relationships, home and work life and our emotional well-being.

We may have come to a stage in life where we are wondering, "So what now? Where do I go from here?" And we are trying to find meaning and purpose.

We want things to change but just don’t know how and this can be a time when we seek counselling.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy which gives you the opportunity to talk with a qualified counsellor about how things are for you, sharing your thoughts and feelings where you will be listened to without judgement. It is a safe space for you to acknowledge what has happened or what you are going through. Having to hold it all can leave us feeling overwhelmed and anxious.

By talking it all through with a counsellor you can start to make sense of what you are going through and have a deeper understanding of why you are feeling the way you do. This self-exploration and understanding can bring about positive change helping you to recognise the choices available to you and finding ways in which to move forward in your life.

Counselling can also help you in your own personal development enabling you to grow as a person and creating a stronger sense of self. Gaining confidence in making your own decisions and living a life on a path that is authentic to you.

What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself - Abraham Maslow
