The Counselling Cove

Whatever the reason you're looking for support; self-understanding, to explore feelings, to reduce stress, it is important to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic trick or a quick fix: therapy is a process and one that you are not alone in.

Making changes to behaviour, understanding more about yourself and learning new ways of coping can bring life-altering results.

What is counselling or therapy?

An opportunity to be heard, a collaborative process, through talking and listening, where an individual is supported to work through problems in a confidential environment.  The psychotherapy model that I use is TA

What is Transactional Analysis?  A theory of personality founded in the 50's by Eric Berne that can be used for personal growth, to better understand oneself and others.

Individual Therapy

In individual 50 minute sessions, we’ll work together to create a bespoke counselling contract.   In getting to know you I can offer valuable tools to allow you to support yourself with life’s obstacles.  The basis of our sessions would be for you share information and for me to listen and ask questions. We can also work using picture cards , props, art and metaphors to ensure that your Individual Therapy is beneficial.  I am registered with BACP, UKATA and you will also find me on The Counselling Directory

Considerations


Choosing the right person to support you in your therapeutic journey is a really important step.  Which is why I recommend that you review a few people before making a decision.  Check out sites such as The Counselling DirectoryCOSCA, British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, UKATA or UK Council for Psychotherapy for lists of registered members.

Don't be afraid to ask questions about confidentiality, cancellation policies, the therapist's qualifications and experience.
