About me and my therapy practice

Hi,

I am a counsellor with over 12 years of experience, I work with children, young people couples and families. I also work with groups and organisations.

Clients come to counselling for various reasons: depression, bereavement, anxiety, intimacy concerns, trauma and abuse and all the other every day challenges that we are faced with.

We can be in a rut and are used to repeating the same patterns of behaviour that just aren’t useful. I aim to provide a safe and secure environment that enables us to explore and help make sense of the difficulties and worries that you and your family are going through. There is a sense of uncertainty trying something different and that can be unsettling.

Whilst the focus is on positive change it is usually importance to think about how past events and their impact on the present and the future.

We are all different and the hope is to be aware of our differences and accept that and it is OK. What we want to try and achieve is a better understanding and learn how to be sensitive in how we relate and communicate with each other and to nurture change and development and move forward.

There is no blame and the sessions helps those in a close relationship to help each other through exploring, expressing difficult thoughts and emotions but safely. It builds on strengths and values and appreciates each other’s needs and values.

I am mindful to take into consideration each person’s needs and art and play can be used.

The sessions can be emotionally tiring, it can be hard to hear what others say about us and sometimes you may not even want to come back. I will hope to help you be brave and vulnerable and to make positive changes for the future. I will not take sides and am able to manage the sometimes challenging and confrontation within the family.
