What is Counselling?

Counselling is a process that focuses on you and your well-being.  At Connective Counselling you will work alongside me, your counsellor in order to identify and improve core issues in your life that are currently keeping you “stuck”. You will be given the safe, confidential and non judgmental space to talk about your situation and to explore your feelings. Counselling is not about being given advice but instead offering you insights into your feelings and behaviour. The process helps to increase your self awareness and facilitate growth and self confidence which enable you to fulfill your potential.
