Why consider counselling?
Counselling is a very effective form of ‘talking therapy’ that can help with a wide variety of issues.

It is a well established and clinically proven form of psychological help that can help to address the following issues:-
- Eating Disorders
- Employment worries
- Managing Change
- Mental Health
- Panic Attacks
- Personal Development
- Self Harm
- Terminal Illness
- Self Esteem
- Suicidal feelings
How does it work?
Counselling is an opportunity for you to talk to a professional therapist to help you understand yourself and your situation. This might involve reflecting on your life experiences and your responses to new ones. The counsellor will also help you to identify what changes in life style could reduce any distress you feel, and to support you as you consider how to do this. Depending on what you are able to share, the counsellor works with you to explore how you can progress towards living in a way that is more satisfactory and resourceful for you. Although the counselling offered is primarily non-directive and non-advisory, in some situations you may want more positive guidance from specific information and advice. The counsellor will suggest how this might be obtained
How Does Counselling Work in Practice?
Counselling takes place in a private setting so that you can feel free to share your concerns in confidence. In the initial session, you will be able to talk to the counsellor to clarify the areas that you want to cover together. The counsellor will suggest the number of times you might need to meet to achieve your objectives. Each session is 55 minutes, normally at the same time each week. Depending on how things work out, you may wish to take short breaks in the process to work on issues that have emerged for you, returning later when you are ready to do more work.

About Paula Cornes
MY COUNSELLING APPROACH
Paula has worked for many years in Organisations, Charities and private practise and her warm attentive and compassionate approach combined with different skills and theories enables her to provide therapy that is unique towards each person’s individual needs, helping to facilitate long term sustainable change. Providing this type of therapy can help people to work through a wide range of issues. Paula understands that a lack of connection to others impacts greatly on our Mental Health, which can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness. Working with deep empathy and having an understanding of your world along with good rapport (connection) enables her to help you to experience being heard and understood bringing the foundations needed for the beginning of therapy to be built and eventually through this process help you come from a place of dis-empowerment to empowerment.
As an experienced Hypnotherapist Paula can offer this as a combination with Psychotherapy to apply another approach to help facilitate change.
