Here’s what clients say:

“I didn’t know what to expect from counselling other than what I’ve seen in movies, so I was up for a surprise. Alan provided me with an opportunity to improve how I connect with others by improving the stories I tell to myself and others, expand awareness and better connect to my emotions. Alan’s acceptance and soft approach helped me to feel safe when discussing difficult/sensitive topics. On top of that, Alan is reliable and always tried his best to accommodate any need for flexibility on my end. Alan’s relaxed attitude helped sometimes even to laugh at the difficult moments in my experience, so I’m very glad I decided to reach out to him in the 1st place.”–Vytas (Financial Accountant)

 

Alan is a fantastic counsellor who helped me through a tricky time. He’s very personable, and was able to guide me through my thoughts with the right balance of involvement. Was also very flexible around my schedule.“–Carl (Software Developer)

Alan Bordeville
Counsellor

If you’re anything like I was, I can understand why you might be sceptical of counselling.

Before seeking help in my early 30s, I spent most of my 20s attempting to do everything on my own. I had a fierce sense of personal pride and independence.

Also, my previous attempts at reaching out had failed miserably. I got half-brained advice from people who meant well, but didn’t get where I was coming from.

Besides, what could a total stranger offer someone like me? I was special, complicated, frustrated and angry.

I moved around a lot. I went from job to job, and relationship to relationship looking for some kind of relief.

It seemed that I wasn’t interested in anything, except partying, and that I didn’t belong anywhere.

When I finally considered counselling, I was ready to try something different.

What I came to realize was that I wasn’t alone. That I was special, but not unique in my experience. That it was OK to be angry, and that I was actually hurt.

I learned what it’s like to be engaged in an empathic conversation, discussing what was most important to me (who doesn’t like talking about themselves!).

But not in an egotistical kind of way. In fact, the hardest part was letting go of my ego, and practicing self-acceptance.

Counselling is a chance to slow down and have an honest conversation. Have a focused-dialogue about what matters to you most, without judgement.

It’s about taking the time and space to get to know yourself better. Letting go of the past, and confidently moving forward to create the life that you want.

Reclaim your future now!
