General Thoughts About Feedback  

I think it is important to mention that counselling is a highly subjective experience.  Each person is different, so your experience of counselling may be different than your friends, family, partner, work-mates or acquaintances.  One size doesn't fit all!  

've included the above feedback so that you can get a flavour of the experience some others have had in working with me, both in a counselling setting, a group setting and professionally.

think counselling is most effective when you find someone to work with who you feel comfortable with, someone you trust, someone who can walk alongside you, assisting you to explore the areas and aspects of your life (and yourself) that you are willing to focus on.  

The experience of counselling has been described in a range of ways that can be vastly different.  Some people have described counselling using the following adjectives:

  • Thought provoking
  • Gentle, and yet also powerful
  • Accepting
  • Enjoyable
  • "Full"
  • Exciting
  • Challenging
  • A safe space to be myself
  • Subtle
  • Stirring
  • Frustrating 
  • A call to action
  • Multi layered
  • Full of heights and depths
  • Confusing
  • Profound Just what I needed it to be (even if it didn'talways feel comfortable!)
  • Growth-full
So, to affirm again, everyone's experience is unique.  Counselling offers a unique environment to explore ourselves safely with a trained professional without the inevitable 'baggage'  that can accompany trying to work through challenges with family or friends and/or the struggle of trying to 'tough it out' by ourselves.  As the saying goes "Together Everyone Achieves More".
