About me and my therapy practice

Hello, welcome.  Life often throws up challenges, changes, stressors and losses as we go though life and sometimes we can feel a mix of emotions which can be hard to make sense of, and harder still to know what we want to do about. Often these changes such as divorce or loss of a job or relationship really cause us to question ourselves and counselling can really help with this.

Our work together will be exploratory and collaborative. You will find a supportive, listening space in which you can bring your problems and I will use my experience and knowledge to ask questions and offer reflections. This will help you to think outside your usual ways of thinking and feeling about yourself and your life.

 I won't offer solutions. My job instead is to help you to piece together how you see yourself which is feeding into your current problems, so that you can start to see what these elements are.

This is both a supportive process and a challenging one too. Often there's a repeating pattern or key theme, which, once identified, can then be expressed and redecided.  This is because how we see and make sense of our problems is often rooted in the past, and so our work together will involve understanding the links between your past and your here and now problems.

 Sometimes painful buried feelings emerge in the work which can be released whuch can make you feel a lot lighter and freer to make new decisions.

 Understanding yourself in this way can transform how you feel and think about yourself and lead to creating a  life which is much more satisfying and rewarding.

How long we work together is an ongoing conversation throughout the counselling and decided by you depending on what you want to change and where you wish to get to with it.
