A. People talk about all sorts of things to a counsellor or therapist. You can talk about the things that you are finding challenging, and Rachel can help you to find some ways through tricky situations. Or she can help you to figure out where you want to go, what you want to do. Regardless of what you talk about, everything is completely confidential.
A. Many problems can be dealt with much better if they are addressed early. If you are thinking about getting help, then it is probably a good idea to see someone early rather than later, before it becomes worse and impacts on work, relationships, and other areas of life.
A. Rachel's trained in a range of different approaches. If there is an answer, she will be able to help you uncover it. But, sometimes there is no ‘fix’ to life’s challenges. It is still useful to have someone there to support you through tough times.
A. No! Rachel firmly believes that every person’s journey and choices in life are unique. And she'll support you to live your life, your way. Everything you say is totally private and confidential. Think of it as your safe space, with someone who is completely on your side.
A. Everyone’s situation is different. Some people may need just a few sessions to help through a tough time, whereas others may need more intensive sessions over a period of time. Most clients have more frequent sessions at first and then gradually reduce their sessions. Many choose to continue on an ongoing basis, and we compare this to looking after your car. If there are problems, you get them addressed. But it is also good to have the car maintained by regular servicing every so often to prevent problems in the future.
A. Rachel can meet with you face to face during regular working hours, or for phone/online session some weekday evenings. Worried about needing time off work? That's understandable. And it is worth booking anyway - when you look after yourself, work and life gets easier too. Get in touch to find out her availability at a time that best suits you.
