There are times when life feels like an uphill struggle with too many hurdles to find a way forward.
You may be experiencing past or present difficulties with a relationship breakdown, work related issues, bereavement or abuse, and coping with feelings of loss, stress, anxiety, depression or hopelessness.
Talking to family and friends is an option, however, this might be a time when talking to an impartial other proves helpful.
If any of the above resonates with you then counselling may well be the way forward.
How can counselling help
- Recognising and seeking support is the first step.
- Counselling offers a safe and confidential space where you can speak freely and feel listened to without judgement.
- It provides an environment for self-exploration which develops greater self-awareness in understanding you.
Choosing the right therapist is an important part of the process.
About me and my therapy practice
I am a Person Centred psychotherapeutic counsellor who can provide long and short term therapy.
The Person Centred model works on the belief that we possess the answers we seek. My role is to facilitate the exploration of your thoughts and feelings by working alongside you. The process aids clarity and reveals solutions that work best for you in your life.
For over 20 years’ I have worked in a variety of community-based settings supporting adults, children and young people to affect change in their lives, always using a Person Centred approach. They may have experienced poor mental health, substance misuse, domestic and sexual violence, parenting difficulties and family breakdowns.
In addition to my private practice I have worked with a Rape Crisis Centre and also been as part of a team on the Truth Project - the Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse.
My first session
Taking the first step can feel daunting even a little scary. You are welcome to get in touch by email, text or phone, whichever feels comfortable. I can discuss any queries you have regarding the sessions or how I work.
An initial 30 min free consultation is also available. It provides an opportunity to establish if I'm the right counsellor for you with no obligation.
I practice from a dedicated counselling space within my home. You can expect a warm and caring welcome in a peaceful environment affording you the time and space to unpack and discover the best way forward in your life.
You are welcome to park on the driveway, and there is also ample on street parking.
