"I have been to see a counsellor before and I didn't find them nearly as insightful, understanding, and thought-provoking as Ian {At Hope Therapy}. He helped me to reflect on my problems and asked me questions that really made me think. I have taken away so much for our sessions and I am so grateful for the help he has given me and my relationship. Thank you, Ian :)"

"Ian is a highly-skilled, empathic, non-judgemental, warm therapist who has helped so many people to re-find their true selves."

​​What is Counselling?

Hitting a crisis point in your life can be scary. Counselling provides a space in which you can explore the issues that are affecting you, to raise your self-awareness.  Often, the more accepting of yourself you become, the more options for change emerge.

 

What can Counselling help with?

You might come to see a counsellor for a variety of reasons.

  • You may be facing a life-changing event that has created shock or grief. 

  • You may be experiencing feelings of depression and isolation, low self-esteem or suffering from feelings of anxiety, without fully understanding why.

  • There may be events from your past that are preventing you from living your life in the way you would like to.

  • Equally, you may be experiencing a lack of direction, feelings of boredom or of being trapped.

  • A significant relationship may be proving difficult for you to manage healthily.  

  • You may be aware of self-destructive patterns occurring in your life which are causing you or those around you pain.

  • Extreme feelings such as anger, shame, guilt, sadness or loneliness may be affecting your daily life, keeping you stuck in an uncomfortable place.

Counselling can help you to accept the things that you cannot change and help you to bring about the changes that are possible.

 

How Counselling is delivered

Counselling is delivered individually and currently online. The number of sessions you need depends on the difficulty you need help with and is something that can be discussed with your counsellor as you go along.

What to expect during your Counselling sessions

Once you have taken the brave step to contact us, it is not unusual to feel nervous. Initially, it can be difficult to talk about the issues that have brought you to the therapy room. You may experience fear of being judged or criticised.  Perhaps you have never felt that anyone has really listened to you or understood you, let alone accepted you.

We aim to create an environment that acts as a safe space for you to talk. There is no ‘right' or 'wrong’ and no judgments are made. We will listen to you and guide you to explore the issues which are impacting your life. Together, we will help you identify where you can make changes. We will also help you learn to accept the things which you cannot change.
