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
