Counselling or Emotional support?


Emotional Support

You may not need therapy as such. You may just need to get your head around something before it starts affecting your daily life or your health. It could be a difficult week, a specific problem that you do not want to burden your loved ones with, but struggle to sort out alone. 

You may not be inclined to go for therapy, because things aren't 'that bad'. But before they get to that point, you could do with a bit of unbiased, confidential thinking space. 

If so, then emotional support sessions could be the answer: you book when you need, you can do it as a one-off, and come back as many times as you need. 

Emotional support is not therapy, in so far as it doesn't try to delve into 'issues'. or aim for bigger shifts of awareness, it just tries to help you cope with whatever challenge or difficulty you are facing, there and then. 

You can book 30 min, 60 min or 90 min sessions, and if you are not doing regular counselling sessions with me, you can ask to book as rarely or as often as you need, and I will be there, depending on

my available times that week. (for prices click here)


If you feel you need counselling, if you want to work on something that has been bothering you or affected your life, your health, then we can set up a series of counselling sessions. That can be short term (6 to 10 sessions), or 'open ended': you do sessions for a long as you need.

My way of working is 'Person Centred': is based on the work and writings of Carl Rogers: it is quite different from CBT or Psychoanalysis. To find out more.
