About me and my therapy practice

Many of us struggle to find balance in life, for a number of reasons and this can sometimes cause us pain, frustration and unhealthy patterns.Does change feel hard? Connect with new possibilities; sometimes it can be easier with support. Counselling is a very personal and unique experience to each of us. My role is to help my clients explore feelings and emotions during times of unease. With this in mind, I aim to create a relaxed, yet safe therapeutic atmosphere.  We will work in partnership to ensure growth at a pace appropriate and comfortable to you. I have a non-judgemental approach, placing emphasis on our time together as being ‘your space’. Counselling will always take place in a safe environment where confidentiality is paramount. Any challenges we experience can sometimes mask other deep seated issues and lead our counselling to areas of loss or depression, anger management and anxiety, lack of confidence/low self-esteem, isolation , relationship s, work issues, bullying etc. I am committed to support clients who are experiencing and wish to explore any of these issues. Whatever your challenge, whether its stress, anxiety, depression or faced with physical pain or illness, if you feel  Mindfulness maybe an option for you, I am happy to explore this with you. What is Mindfulness? 'a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique’. As an Accredited Counsellor, my fees are respectful of the service I provide.  If we agree seeing you in your own home would be beneficial, mileage fees maybe applicable. Please feel free to contact me and I will answer any questions or concerns you may have.
