Counselling is a type of talk-based therapy where you can share your thoughts and feelings in a safe space without judgement.
A counselling session may just be a therapeutic conversation between you and a counsellor,
or according to your needs it may also include other therapeutic techniques like meditation,
breathing exercises, walking, and spending time in nature.
There are many reasons why someone may seek out a counsellor. These are some of the common ones:

Although many people see counsellors in times of struggle, counselling can also be part of your ongoing self-care routine. Even when things are going well, people find counselling helpful to let off steam and gain a clearer perspective. It helps them lead a happier and more productive life.
ARE YOU GOING THROUGH A HARD TIME AND NEED SUPPORT?
We all go through ups and downs,
but some downs are more difficult than others.
Intense emotions like grief, anxiety,
depression and anger can make life exceptionally hard.
You may have tried to get through these hard times yourself,
or relied on the help of family and friends.
But sometimes things get so bad,
we need some extra support.
I believe you’re the expert on yourself and deep down you already know what’s best for you.
That’s why Build Your Safe Space is centred around your needs.
My role is to create a safe space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings comfortably.
You might just need someone to listen and show up for your feelings. Or maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed and confused and need someone to help untangle your thoughts? I support you through the process.
