Damian Pullen | Counsellor
✓ I also offer online therapy
Kia ora, I’ve been a counsellor for 7 years now, and I enjoy helping people who are finding life difficult, for whatever reason. Usually, we can sort problems out by ourselves, or with help from friends and family. But sometimes we need extra help, and that’s what counsellors are there for.
Problems have a way of taking over our lives, and sometimes we need help to work out exactly what’s not going so well, and why, and what can be done about it. By contacting a counsellor, you have taken a step towards doing this. It’s OK to ask for help. We all need help sometimes.
If we work together, other steps might include us talking about the problem, so we both understand it, and how it’s affecting you, and thinking about and working towards solutions. If there isn’t a solution, we might work on how to make the problem manageable.
Counselling is about change
I believe that counselling is ultimately about change. You might change the way you feel about the problem, or you might be able to do something to change it, or you might need some help from other people. With the right preparation and support, change is possible.
Problems can also make us feel lonely, lost, and unsure of ourselves. Reconnecting with other people can be an important part of reducing the effects of problems in our lives. We all need a support network.
Talking with a counsellor can be a good place to start, because we don’t judge, criticise, tell you what to do, or talk to anyone else about you, unless you want us to, or unless we are worried about you. We’ll talk about confidentiality before we start working together.
Working together is what I enjoy about counselling. I don’t have the answers, but I believe that between us we can find a way forward. Sometimes just taking the time to talk and think things through can make the difference.
I encourage you to give it a go. We can talk face to face, or by video, or phone, or by text - whatever you feel most comfortable with.
I can do face to face and online counselling.
If you would like to meet in person, we will need to arrange a time which suits us both.
If you would like to talk on the phone or by video (Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, Messenger), that is also an option.
