When I ask you to Listen

When I ask you to Listen

LISTEN’ When I ask you to listen to me And you start giving me advice, You have not done what I asked. When I ask you to listen to me And you begin to tell me ‘why’ I shouldn’t feel that way, You are trampling on my feelings. When I ask you to listen to me And you feel you have to do something to solve my problems, You have failed me, strange as that may seem. Listen! All I ask is that you listen; Not talk, nor do – just hear me. And I can do for myself –…

A one-model approach is limiting to all the possibilities open to you. By integrating different approaches I can be flexible and go with the flow and energy that you bring to each counselling appointment. I have trained and studied extensively in the following theoretical models which inform my approach to…

Counselling & Psychotherapy

Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change and enhance their wellbeing. When looking for a counsellor or psychotherapist be sure to check that they are accredited members of a professional organisation such as the BACP. Counselling tends to be short-term with a specific goal in mind whereas psychotherapy tends to explore issues in greater depth. Both provide an opportunity to talk to a professional in complete confidence and both cover a…
