The overall aim of counselling is to provide an opportunity for the client to work towards living life in a way that is more satisfying and resourceful. Counselling may be concerned with developmental issues, addressing and resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with crises, developing personal insight and knowledge, working through feelings, and inner conflict, or improving relationships with others.
At Harley Street Counselling we provide help and management with the following issues:
Sessions are strictly confidential and complete discretion is assured.
What to Expect
After an initial appointment, there is no obligation to continue if you do not wish to. You and I may use the time to examine the life difficulties for which you are considering counselling. I will address any questions you may have. You can see how you feel working with me. You and I will then be able to decide if my counselling approach is right for you.
The Integrative Counselling approaches I use:
Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine what issue concerning your childhood and/or adulthood you discuss. An objective of Counselling is to help you to talk about a difficulty and discover a solution that is appropriate for you.
Integrative Therapy combines therapeutic approaches to fit your needs and the issues you experience. It considers your subjective experience and choices. The aim of Integrative Therapy is to help you develop your self-understanding.
Humanistic Therapy focuses on valuing you. It sees you as a whole human being and prioritises your personal growth. Humanistic Therapy aims to help you recognise your autonomy.
Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you face. It explores your thoughts, feelings and significant moments in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or find appropriate methods of coping.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your feelings and behaviour. It recognises and addresses unhelpful thoughts that perpetuate the problems you experience. The aim of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and feelings.
