Me Time -'Time spent relaxing on one’s own as opposed to working or doing things for others, seen as an opportunity to reduce stress or restore energy.'
What is Counselling?
Counselling is a term used to describe a talking therapy - a relationship that allows a person to talk about problems or feelings in a safe and confidential space. It can be used to talk about anything from current issues to previous bereavements. It's a space for you to explore how you are feeling.
There are many different types of therapy - Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Art Therapy - the list is very comprehensive and it can feel a little overwhelming. If you would like to read up on the different types of therapy, try the following webpage:
As a practitioner I follow the person centred approach.
What is Person Centred Counselling?
Person - or client centred therapy was developed by Carl Rogers and is based on the idea that we all have the ability to change and develop if given the right conditions and environment. You are the best person to resolve your issues and the therapist will work to help you find your own solutions without directing you or advising on strategies.
Life is busy and demanding and we can all use a little Me Time. Time with friends is great but how often do you really talk about how you are feeling? We protect our loved ones and often carry on and cope when lifes demands become overwhelming.
Counselling can provide some well needed Me Time. It’s a safe space to talk and reflect, to address serious problems or simply to put yourself first and focus on what you need. Counselling provides a non-judgemental ear, somewhere to say anything you like without fear of people’s reactions. A safe place to work through niggles or major life issues. A place for some Me Time.
