Ever thought about your thoughts? Huh? Got you thinking?
Do you know thoughts can be distorted. Distorted thoughts are not the truth
Do you know that YOU control your thoughts; yes that’s right YOU have the ability to control your thoughts, your thoughts don’t control you.
Have you ever thought about your thoughts?
Why do you produce that style of thought?
How far do you go with that thought?
To change your life you need to change your thoughts.
We teach you to listen to your thoughts rather than simply reacting to your thoughts.

Emotions - Did you know?
Emotions are the result of feelings and you are completely unaware as to how you generate them.
Your emotions can be triggered by feelings, words, pictures and sound that are either real or imagined
Our emotions are part of us but they are not us – We each have the ability to alter our emotion state
What if you had the ability to change your emotional state?
What if you could learn how to manage feelings of shame, guilt etc

What is Counselling?
Counselling is a safe and protected environment for you to feel safe, comfortable and supported while seeking guidance with your concerns, problems, worries and fears. Counselling covers many issues besides emotional difficulties, counselling can address confidence concerns, behaviour patterns and any other experience that is causing you personal distress or worry. Jodie's philosophy is to support you unconditional in a caring and efficient way, empowering you to gain insight, understanding and acceptance of yourself and your concerns. We work together as a team in a collaborative environment creating active steps to help you overcome any thoughts, emotions, feelings and assumptions that are influencing your life with negative consequences.

Different types of counselling
Some people may just wish to have an independent person outside of their life (the counsellor) to talk to about their problems, to feel listened to, heard and acknowledged, this approach normally use's a person-centered methodology.

Others seek to come to counselling to gain new techniques and tools to help them over-come their problems. They find that their continued behavior seems to be having consequences on their life that are taking a toll. Mental, emotional, social, financial, spiritual, health and other life area's may be suffering. That underneath their veneer there is an increasing in tension. There are many beneficial therapies such as CBT, Gestalt, Solution-Focused, Narrative, Behavioral etc that can be implemented to help you achieve your desired outcome.

Interested but feeling resistant?
When you decide to change you are going into unknown territory – you’re internal asking yourself, could it help my life to become better or worse. The answer is no-one can answer that question for you. Belief and faith in yourself and you will always be safe and secure in who you are.


Jodie knows the important of the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist and is always more then happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have in finding the right counsellor for you.
