Benefits of Counselling
Counselling offers the consistency of a regular time to feel, express and reflect on emotions within the context of a trusting relationship with a calm adult. I believe that all children and young people deserve to feel heard. My work involves a balance of supporting the positives and facing the difficult things together. Building emotional health through childhood, adolescence and early adulthood can help provide the foundation for long-term wellbeing.
Counselling is bespoke and unique to each individual. Some of the benefits may include:
Feeling heard and less alone
Creating coherent narratives about difficult experiences
Helping feelings become more manageable
Building self-esteem and positive sense of self
Promoting regulation of the nervous system
Improving emotional awareness and communication
Developing emotional resilience
