About me and my therapy practice
My own personal life experience, as well as working with others, has shown me how healing counselling can be. We all need someone to really listen, who won’t be shocked or hurt by our pain. When we are truly heard we can make sense of what has happened to us.
How would it feel to be listened to, to know that you are not alone? Being truly heard can be one of the most powerful things about counselling.
Do you feel that your childhood was challenging or even abusive? For many of us, our past informs our present. Counselling can help if your past is holding you back. Challenging childhoods can continue to affect us long after we leave home. They can leave you struggling to trust others, which can make relationships difficult. A difficult childhood can result in many different things: sometimes we numb with drink or drugs or find ourselves in abusive relationships; sometimes we just find life really hard.
Counselling gives you a chance to explore what you are feeling and gives you a better understanding of what makes you tick. Being heard rather than “fixed” can be incredibly powerful. Counselling supports you to truly value yourself, which in turn can make life feel more manageable.
I practice evidence-based, Trauma-Focused Therapy. This type of therapy is based on understanding the connection between a traumatic event, or series of events and how that can impact you now. Trauma can affect our mental, emotional, behavioural and spiritual wellbeing.
Would you like to have a new sense of confidence and hopeful about the future?
