About me and my therapy practice
We all have times in our lives when we need someone to talk to about our difficulties outside our family and friends. Counselling will offer you this opportunity and support to help you explore your concerns within a safe and confidential environment. I see each client as an individual with individual needs, my integrative training enables me to offer you a personal approach depending upon your needs using a wide range of therapies including directive and non-directive approaches.
I offer a warm, welcoming and confidential space for you to talk about your feelings, concerns and emotions. Some clients find that they only need a few sessions of counselling to help them through a crisis or focus on a specific problem. For others they may require longer, this may be a more deep rooted problem. This will be discussed at your initial meeting when we can talk together about your reasons for coming to counselling.
I currently work with adults and young people and have many years experience of counselling both. I work as a school counsellor and this gives me a really good insight into the many different types of pressures young people face today. I will sometimes use creative tools to help my clients express themselves when words are difficult to find. I fully understand that deciding to seek help in counselling can be a difficult step to take and the process can be challenging. Once you have made that decision to change what you want to change in your life you have now taken your first step.
