No matter who we are – It helps to talk about our problems.
Talking through our problems in a non-judgemental and empathetic environment will change our state of being.
Our world currently has a deficit of Empathy, which means there is a deficit of Vulnerability. Without vulnerability we cannot have empathy.
What is Counselling?
We live in an ever changing world of ideas, morals, behaviours, structures, cultures and environments; therefore we can become overwhelmed by the change. The change in our environment, in our career, in our relationships, in our lives.
The pressure of the ever changing fast-passed living, in our work, home and social lives can take a huge toll on our emotion. Therefore this affects our physical body, health and mental well being.
Many people will, at some point in their lives, find themselves in need to talk to a professional. Someone who will listen with empathy, listen with no judgement and be a reflective guide with absolute confidentiality.
The nature of counselling is a personal development process, because the counsellor offers reflective encouragement, guidance, and inspiration and of course challenges in managing and resolving practical, personal and relationship issues, in achieving goals, and in self-realisation.
The purpose of counselling is to assist the client to make their own choices and decisions. Therefore, the therapist listens carefully and reflects or mirrors. In the work, the client awakens or is enabled to explore the issues and difficulties that he or she may be experiencing or feeling.
Counselling with David Ellis
David offers a Therapist Centred or Therapist Directive approach, which means the structure of the session is predetermined and is led by the therapist.
David prepares a structure based on the previous weeks sessions, and guides the session through that structure, always allowing room for anything new that has occurred in the clients week.
This style of therapy, helps to reduce the number of sessions, as it is directive on specific goals to be achieved, but it is important to realise that whilst on the journey, others issues become uncovered and need to be addressed to bring an effective closure to the underlying issue.
David provides confidential consultations in a relaxed setting.
He believes that the journey inward, is a precious and invaluable journey, that requires an investment of time and money. With that in mind, David offers his clients a free of charge, pre-consultation. This is where the new client can become familiar with David and his work, and be confident and comfortable that David’s approach is suitable for you.
The Postive Mind Clinic
The Positive Mind Clinic is located on 4 acres of landscaped gardens designed specifically to promote inner peace and tranquillity. David encourages his clients to spend time in nature. ,The grounds of the Clinic are an ideal starting point to commune with Nature and begin this journey.
At the end of the pre-consultation, you will be given a password to access a confidential questionnaire on this site,.This allows the new client to fill in important questions and fact finding information which can be done in your own space and time.
