About me and my therapy practice
I am an experience counsellor with over ten years in practice. I feel passionately about helping people to lead more fulfilling lives. Counselling takes place in a safe space, whether this is on line, telephone or face to face, I will listen to you with sensitivity and empathy - and without judgement. In the therapuetic space your thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.
Through working together, I aim to empower with a set of tools, you can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing any problems - and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.
In therapy you can gain a greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, helping you understand why you act or react in your day to day life in the way that you do, and see how you can start to make better, heathier choices moving forward.
Rakana Counselling Services provides client led counselling which means your needs are at the centre of our sessions which are tailor made and as unique as you are.
Most of us at some point in our lives experience difficulties and problems that affect how we feel and our ability to function day by day.
During these times it may be hard to speak to family and friends about these worries and so there is a need to speak with someone who will listen and understand and accept us as we are.
My first session
I believe that seeing a therapist should not add to your anxiety or stress levels - so I want to take the fear and mystery away from your first visit. With me you'll find a relaxed, open, warm therapist who holds no judgment, there to support you on your journey.
