How does therapy work?

Answers to some common questions

What should i expect?
I aim to offer a calm and confidential environment where you can explore concerns that are troubling you, without fear of being judged or criticised. 
In a safe environment, thoughts and feelings can be explored and repeated patterns of behaviour identified, some of which may have a bearing on current problems. 
Through the counselling process, a greater level of self awareness and confidence can be developed, leading to enhanced relationships and positive 
change. I offer an open grounded jargon free approach. 
I do not use any 'techniques' without explaining them and gaining your consent first. 
Where do i go?
