About me and my therapy practice

About me

Are feeling stuck? Does it feel to you like your life has lost joy, meaning or purpose? Does it feel like it is just no longer satisfying? All of us get stuck at times. Becoming aware of being stuck could be because your true inner self is asking you to listen to what it is trying to tell you. Maybe it is asking you to give it time, care and attention. Sometimes we need another in our lives we can speak to about how we are really feeling without any fear of being judged. Someone who will create a safe, secure and confidential space for us where we are free to explore what is really going on.

What to expect

I remember my own therapist saying to me many times "you deserve support". I was often comforted by these words. We all deserve support but sometimes we may not ask, either, because we don't really believe we do or because the very idea of asking for support is terrifying. I would like to offer you "support". Counselling can be challenging at times if we are courageously trying to bring about the change our lives need. Change that we both feel and know it really needs. I want you to experience being supported as you reflect and explore why your life is not giving you the fulfilment, joy and satisfaction that you seek and deserve.

Then it will be about us working together as you create a new vision of how you would like your life to be. It is about helping you to identify and understand what isn't working for you and helping you to work out why. We will then explore what will work for you, not just in theory, but practically too. "If I choose this how might it be different? How will it feel? We will plan together carefully as you seek to bring change into your life. In this way real positive change can begin.
