Life can be difficult for all of us, at different times, for different reasons. Counselling can provide you with a safe and confidential space to talk through any issues or challenges that you may be experiencing. My aim is to support you in making the changes you need to, to be able to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
I offers counselling to adults, couples, young people and trainee counsellors. I also provide clinical supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors. I bring extensive experience from working as part of a counselling team within an organisation and from my private counselling practice.
I offer appointments Face to Face, Online (via Zoom)and by Telephone . I also offer Walk and Talk sessions (weather permitting). Appointments will normally be weekly at a mutually convenient time. Making the commitment to attending a regular weekly appointment does enable our work together to be its most helpful and effective.
Why Counselling and How Can It Help You
I will work with you to help you live a more authentic life (being true to yourself) and move towards your potential. I do this by providing a safe and confidential space, within a supportive relationship, for you to understand the root of your problems and talk through any issues or challenges that you may be experiencing. I will not give advice or offer the answers to your problems but will remain alongside you and help you find your own way forward and find more better ways of coping with issues. The bedrock of my practice is to listen without judgement and unconditionally accept you: many of my clients find this so empowering that it automatically catalyses change.
During the time that we work together I will help you to better understand yourself, in how you think, feel, react and respond. Increasing your self awareness can positively change both how you feel about yourself and others and help improve your relationships.
I understand that the process of seeking counselling support can feel daunting so I do my upmost to create an environment where you will feel comfortable and at ease. I offer a free 20 minute consultation via zoom or telephone. This is an opportunity for us to meet remotely to discuss your needs and for me to answer any questions you may have.
What Counselling and Psychotherapy Can Help With
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help with depression, low mood and anxiety including panic/panic attacks. Exploring the root of these issues and finding new strategies for coping can help to improve life dramatically.
I have supported many clients, carers and families who have experienced loss, bereavement, and terminal / life limiting illness. Having someone to share your struggles with and to speak to confidentiality can be of huge benefit.
I am also experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with:
