Description:

The online Counselling that I offer comes in 3 overlapping stages. It will include regular reviews of what you want to achieve from counselling and what you are finding useful within the counselling relationship.

Stage 1
This stage is about creating a safe space to explore your current thoughts, emotions and life situation while considering how they may relate to experiences in your past. This can include open questions as well as discussions about your current mood levels and discovering what you would like to achieve from the counselling.
Stage 2
This will involve a more in-depth look into issues that we have identified and how patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving in the past could be affecting your current life experiences. This stage may also involve some homework tasks.
Stage 3
The counselling can then consider personal actions and strategies to empower you to move forward and build towards your goals and improving your well-being. This includes the option for more goal focussed counselling where we discuss moving towards a specific goal and strategies to achieve it. This stage will include a discussion about progress towards your counselling aims and an assessment of your emotional level. During this stage we work towards the end of counselling and creating a post counselling action plan.
