Approach

Beginning counselling is understandably daunting. People can feel self-indulgent and as if they are making a fuss in seeking help, or it may feel as if your problems are so overwhelming that no one can help you. Counselling can help you. Once people engage with counselling, they wish they had done it sooner.

The process of counselling

In a first meeting, Zoe will discuss your current and past experiences and will think along with you about what might be happening. It is also an opportunity for you to consider if you would like to work with Zoe. If you choose to continue, the counselling can be as brief or as long as you wish - you may want just a few sessions to gain some clarity about a specific situation, or you may want open ended psychotherapy which can last for several years, finding a safe and accepting place with Zoe to unpick difficulties you've been struggling with for many years.

Counselling is for anyone

Counselling is likely to stir up painful feelings. At times it will be difficult but it is ultimately liberating, freeing energy for a more fulfilling life.

Zoe is happy to hear from you whether your difficulties feel vague or specific, or if you have a psychiatric diagnosis.
