Welcome to Living Well Counselling & Psychotherapy Services
Self knowledge and self acceptance are keys to a more satisfying and fulfilling way of life- they are keys to living well.
Why come to counselling
People decide to work with a counsellor for a wide variety of reasons.
Some people seek support, somebody to talk to during a particularly difficult time in their lives.
Others want to work on an issue such as stress, fear, conflict, holding resentment, confusion, feeling stuck, not valuing yourself, loss, trauma or other pain in their lives.
People also come to work on a particular behavioural pattern such as having difficulty saying ‘no’ or having outbursts of anger.
Counselling is used by those seeking personal development or struggling to find meaning in their life.
What happens in counselling
Counselling provides a safe, accepting, confidential space where you will be listened to.
You will be supported to explore your thoughts and feelings, to clarify what is going on for you, to get a better understanding of your self, to see patters in how you live, to work with feelings that may be difficult, find new perspectives, identify choices for change and experiment with new possibilities. To find a more satisfying way of being with your self and being with others.
You will not be told what to do.
You will be supported to find your own ways of changing what is possible to change and living more creatively with that which is not.
Usually people meet a counsellor weekly for an hour.
