Julie Terry-JennerIntegrative counsellor
People often believe that counselling is only good once you have hit a crisis point and no longer know how to handle issues. This is not the case!
Counselling can help you understand why you repeat certain behaviours, help you to communicate with others in a healthier way, teach you how to change your responses to reduce negative impact, help you maintain your relationships, guide you to work out what you want from your life and how you might be able to get it, and so much more.
Having an outside perspective can help you to make sense of things in ways you might not have considered for yourself. Counselling provides a space where you can say out loud many of those things you don’t want to say to others for fear of worrying them, burdening them or because you worry they will judge you.
Together we will look at what is going on in your life now, examine patterns of thinking and behaving and see if there are areas where you can begin to do things differently. Sometimes this might involve looking back to past experiences to see how they shape some of your beliefs and behaviours now. This will be done at a pace that suits you, and you will decide what is important for you to talk about. I may offer insights or another perspective and we will explore together what it could mean.
It can be difficult, and sometimes scary, to think about opening up and sharing painful memories and overwhelming feelings with a new person or a stranger. I provide a safe space, where you can talk about what you feel is important, at a pace that suits you. I will not rush you to share before you are ready and know that it takes time to build the trust and confidence needed. We will explore your feelings together and I will stay alongside you while we get to know each other.
