There are times when our emotions can feel overwhelming and our ability to cope with everyday situations becomes a challenge. Counselling provides an opportunity to speak openly and confidentially to someone who is professionally trained to help you to recognise the source of your present difficulties. It offers a space in which you can feel supported and understood, in a manner which allows you to explore and manage whatever is happening in your life. Being able to talk freely about things that are troubling you can be a tremendous relief.
Jennifer’s approach is psychodynamic. Psychodynamic Counselling uses the therapeutic relationship to gain insight into unconscious relationship patterns. A painful situation in the present may have its roots in the past, although we may not be aware of the connection. Once these links are uncovered, the individual can begin to experience greater freedom of thought and action, leading to an improved sense of self and positive change.
