About Dragonfly Counselling
Dragonfly is a counselling service I have been providing for over 6 years. It consists of one-to-one counselling for adults or teenagers, and relational therapy for couples wanting to work on their relationship or individuals seeking therapy around past, current, or future relationships.
What is counselling?
In short, counselling is a talking therapy aimed to help you make sense of what's going on in your mind in order to move forward. As an integrative counsellor, there are three main approaches I use:
Cognitive and behavioural therapies (focusing on the way people think and behave)
Psychoanalytic therapies (looking at how past experiences affect the present)
Humanistic therapies (with a focus on self-development and growth)

The Dragonfly is the symbol of change and self-realization; so too does therapy set out to aid personal growth and bring about a deeper understanding of ourselves, our decisions, and our lives. This is this kind of insight that Dragonfly counselling will guide you towards, whether you’re dealing with anxiety, deep pain and unhappiness, or confusion about a certain aspect of your life, I will provide a safe and caring environment for you to work through these roadblocks and together we will find a way to help you move forward.
People are unique individuals and so for therapy to be truly effective, my guidance will always reflect this. This may begin as psychoanalytical – to help you firstly understand your emotions – followed then by a cognitive approach to give you the coping skills you need to move forward. Either way, we will explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, helping you to tackle negative thought patterns and psychological blocks, so you can continue to move towards your full potential, find solutions, and regain control.
