Sarah Bergman provides counselling on the Gold Coast and Tweed Coast and she believes that everyone can benefit from counselling to ensure their Mental Health. Sarah Bergman sees counselling as essentially being about self care. Some of her client’s view counselling as a form of mental hygiene. Sarah Bergman sees counselling as the client’s time to be truly heard and for them to experience themselves as they are, without fear of rejection or judgement.
Primarily the first appointment is focused on understanding what is happening for you, some history taking and determining how we can be of assistance. The total number of sessions required can be negotiated after this initial session. Generally it is around six however sometimes if the issue is more complex a longer time frame may be needed and this can be re-negotiated. Some client’s choose to stay in counselling for years attending fortnightly or monthly sessions and see it as their safe place to be supported, heard and accepted in order to gain continuing clarity in themselves and their lives.
Choosing a counselor is a very personal decision and you may feel hesitant or anxious about attending counselling. For this reason Counselling on the Coast has endeavoured to relate as much information about Sarah Bergman, Counselling, Gestalt Psychotherapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples on this website, allowing you to make an informed decision and to feel more at ease.
