About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to my profile and well done for taking the first step on your counselling journey.

Sometimes life can be challenging and problems can leave us feeling overwhelmed,confused,lost,stuck

powerless and alone with our problems."Its ok not to be ok" and at these times having some support,somebody to talk to,who isn't emotionally involved can prove beneficial,giving more clarity and understanding about where you want to be and how you can get there.

I aim to provide a warm,welcoming and trusting space,where I will listen allowing you to explore any issues you're experiencing whether that be from the past present or future.I will provide this in a respectful and non judgemental way,giving you the time and space to share what you want at your own pace.

It can seem quite daunting at first but I'm hoping to put you at ease and give any needed support,walking alongside you,every step of the way.I don't aim to fix your problems,rather I will work with you to explore any issues and look at strategies that will help you manage/cope in your everyday life now and in the future.I understand that every person is unique and everybody's experience is different,therefore your counselling will be tailor made to suit you.

I'm an integrative counsellor which means I work in a person centred way,providing you a safe,confidential space where you will be listened to,valued and accepted as the person you are.I can also provide CBT counselling where we can look at unhelpful thinking patterns patterns and behaviours,working to develop more healthy ways of thinking.
