Do you find that thoughts and feelings can sometimes seem unmanageable and overwhelming?
Do you find yourself repeating unhelpful, negative patterns in the way in which you relate to yourself and others?
Do you recognise patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that prevent you from reaching your personal goals and having the relationships you want?
Do you know what you do, but cannot understand how and why it happens, or how to change it?
Here at Engage I offer online or face-to-face, short term or open-ended therapy, depending on what you need. Because I understand that our needs vary from person to person and what is important can change from moment to moment.
So when you feel ready to take the time and space to be heard and engage, I will be here to listen and support you. Helping you to gain awareness and understanding as we work together, to obtain your therapeutic goals for positive and meaningful change.
I provide face to face counselling in Salisbury (Lower Bemerton). I provide a calm, relaxing and confidential space to talk through your thoughts and feelings at a pace that suits you, with the view to helping you to fulfil your goals. The practice has free adjacent parking and is accessible from the London Road (A 36) or a 15 minute walk from the train station.
Online video call sessions provide the client and therapist the opportunity to have visual contact, whilst you remain in your preferred environment, this can be provided by Skype or Zoom. It can seem a little strange at first, but if you have ever watched a TV program with subtitles, after a while you do stop noticing. The important factor is that you feel relaxed and are not at risk of being disturbed or overheard.
Telephone counselling provides the greatest flexibility and the simplest access. Sometimes we might not want to be seen or may find some technical options unsafe or off putting, the anonymity of a telephone call can provide a degree of perceived safety, that might benefit or comfort some individuals who may find the counselling process daunting. Video call and telephone allows for personal and logistical challenges that can prevent attending therapy in person as well as manage risk during Covid-19 restrictions.
Acknowledging our need for a counsellor can be quite a step, particularly as many of us value our ability to work things out for ourselves. My approach is rooted in my personal experience that therapy changes lives.
