About me and my therapy practice

Life by its very nature is difficult and from time to time we all need support in dealing with the stuff that our daily lives throw at us. Rooted in the belief that all individuals deserve the right to dignity, care and respect my approach involves a careful exploration of your experiences with a particular focus on your emotions. Overtime this can help you achieve a greater level of understanding and awareness regarding the way you are currently living your life. The goal is to help you get in touch with your own personal values and objectives so that in future you can make better choices for yourself and eventually achieve a more authentic and satisfying existence. Whether you wish to address a specific issue or talk about more general feelings, the simple act of sharing your struggles can be tremendously healing. Opening up and allowing yourself to be gently challenged can lead to a helpful shift in perspective and be enough to completely transform your life. If nothing else it often comes as a great relief to simply be heard and metaphorically held by a fellow human being who understands how incredibly difficult life can be. All you need to do is call or e mail me to arrange your free introductory session during which we can chat about what you'd like to get out of counselling. If you want to continue we can then arrange to meet again at regular weekly intervals.
