Julie Wetson Counselling in Stroud

About Counselling

How can counselling help?

Counselling can help when we temporarily lose our ability to cope on our own. Counselling encourages you to explore and recognise your strengths to enable you to find solutions which work best for you. Your decision to take yourself into counselling can be one of the most courageous choices you make. It can be upsetting or feel like hard work because you are trying to find new ways of dealing with your difficulties.

Counselling provides the opportunity to share what is happening in your life in a safe and confidential space. It can enhance your well-being and help you to live in a more resourceful and positive way by:

  • Building confidence

  • Improving your relationships

  • Identifying negative thinking

  • Helping you to come to terms with bereavement and loss

  • Gaining a different perspective

  • Overcoming low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, panic attacks or traumatic events.
Seeing a counsellor can help you understand your situation with more clarity, review the options and decide upon your actions. Counselling can support you whilst you make important changes in your life but equally it may help you to live more creatively with situations that cannot easily be changed. A change in approach or attitude can create a different experience or solution.

Personal discovery releases your potential to:

  • Understand yourself better

  • Develop new possibilities

  • Provide personal freedom through insight

  • Help you make clearer choices

What happens during counselling?

We will have an hour long session and that time is entirely devoted to you. We will begin by exploring what has brought you to counselling and the concerns and issues that are uppermost in your mind. As we begin to discuss things it is likely that other thoughts and feelings will emerge which you might also wish to examine.

"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."
Carl R. Rogers
