I am a person-centred and existential counsellor, therapist. I will tell you a bit more about these types of therapies and what you can expect if you decide to see me, and Talk to Nora.
Person-centred therapy is a talk-therapy in which, you, the client does most of the talking. Myself, the therapist is there to encourage and support you, and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with your process of self-discovery. We work in a safe, open and non-judgemental atmosphere, where you can focus on your feelings regarding past and present issues and talk about those.
Meanwhile, the existential therapy looks to explore difficulties from a philosophical perspective. It highlights our capacities and encourages us to take responsibility for our decisions, successes and failures.
Trust, respect, and congruence are major components of a good therapeutic relationship built between us. Confidentiality is also a key element of our work.
There may be lots of reasons why you are thinking of counselling, you may feel you need help with a specific issue, or you do not know what the issue is, just not feeling yourself. You might be facing difficulties and worries in your life, struggling to come to terms with a traumatic event or loss. It is also possible that you are dealing with anxiety or feelings of low self-esteem. By working together you will become more self aware through counselling and this leads to changes and a more positive future.
Some of the difficulties that I helped my clients with are:
- overwhelming feelings
- divorce and/or parents` divorce
- relationship issues
- eating disorder
- personality disorder
- loss and bereavement
- sexuality (LGBTQIA)
- living with depression
- stress and anxiety related issues
- panic attack
- anger management
- alcohol and drug addiction
- work related issues
- suicidal thoughts and self-harm
These are just a few examples why my clients decided to seek help. They trusted me enough to share their secrets, fears and difficulties. If you are in a similar situation, Talk to Nora.
