About me and my therapy practice
The first step in counselling is finding a counsellor you trust and feel comfortable with. I am a qualified integrative counsellor offering a confidential, non-judgmental space where we work collaboratively to explore the difficulties and experiences that have brought you to counselling. Many people feel a relief when they are truly heard and understood, and this creates new insights and opens up a new path to move forward. Through counselling, we can create positive changes by exploring your current and past experiences and identifying unhelpful patterns of thinking.
You may be experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, or a lack of purpose. You may feel overwhelmed, stuck, or lost in life. The current climate might be making you feel stressed and worried about your health, work or the future, so you want to find a way to cope with your anxiety caused by the ‘new normal’. Perhaps you know exactly what it is you want from counselling, or maybe you just feel you need to talk because something doesn’t feel quite right and you are struggling to cope. Either way, counselling is a journey of discovery, and I want to walk alongside you. Together, we can find hope and purpose for you again, we can change your negative core beliefs and empower you to set yourself a new horizon.
I am experienced working with adults and young people from various backgrounds and cultures. I focus on your unique situation and experiences as I concern myself with how things are from your own point of view, valuing the importance of your thoughts and feelings.
I work particularly with young people navigating transitional periods in their lives, as well as those who are struggling with low motivation. I also have experience working with people struggling with grief, coming to terms with chronic disease diagnosis, and supporting and empowering carers of family members.
My first session
If this feels right for you, the next step is to contact me, and we can arrange a free 15 minute phone consultation to discuss your options and get to know each other better, without obligation.
We can then arrange our first session where we will meet using Facetime, Skype or Zoom. I offer short term or open ended counselling, so we may work together for a few weeks, months, or years, depending on your preferences and needs. Most people find weekly sessions more useful, but later you may decide upon more or less regular sessions if you prefer.
