About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor, and I help those struggling with the emotional and psychological difficulties which undermine their enjoyment of life; and also those who simply want to better understand what makes them ‘tick’. I use my Integrative training creatively, which allows me to draw on a range of knowledge and adapt that to the specific needs of the person sitting with me. I have great faith in the counselling process (although it may seem daunting at first), and have seen first hand how it can help people deal with their problems, unlock their true potential, and lead a better life.
What you can expect from counselling
You can talk to someone who is listening to you carefully; someone you can talk to in private who is not going to judge you, who is not one of the family, or a friend either. We can examine and discuss your problems, and, through getting to understand how you relate to myself and others, form an understanding of your patterns of behaviour, and their source. From this perspective you can start to make choices which are preferable and kinder to you, and I will help you build a capability to operate those choices. Counselling can give you a greater sense of who you are, how you connect with others and meaningful change in your life.
What happens next
If you have had enough of your struggles and distress and decide to get in touch, we would arrange a first session when we would assess if we could work together (without any obligation to continue). We would discuss what is concerning you, what you want to get out of counselling, and the basics of the counselling process. I feel for the unique struggling human being within, so if you are ready, then I am here to help you.
