I often get asked: “at what point should I seek counselling?” My answer: “if you are not as happy as you could be.” It really is that simple. All of us go through times in our lives when we encounter periods of stress causing us feelings of great discomfort.

Another reason for seeking counselling is recognising patterns of behaviours that are not working, such as relationships ending badly in the same sort of way.

People often wait too long before they seek help. This may lead to depression and/or physical symptoms, which in turn may result in difficulties in our personal and professional relationships.


In my experience, clients who enter therapy with high levels of commitment and motivation emerge from our work together with greater gains. I encourage you to bring an attitude of openness, willingness and a commitment to your emotional work. I believe you will get out of the process what you put into it. Our work together always includes finding greater clarity and authenticity within yourself and in your relationships with others. I will enter our relationship with great respect and with optimism about our progress. If I can’t help you I will refer you to someone better suited.
