About me and my therapy practice
Counselling provides an opportunity to share problems with someone skilled at listening. It aims to assist you to understand how past experiences and current behaviour are linked and can lead to a more creative understanding of situations and behaviours. There are many reasons why people seek counselling and psychotherapy. For those who have problems or are in distress it can help to talk to someone outside their family/social circles. Some may be feeling anxious or depressed or have a general dissatisfaction in life without knowing why. Some would like to deepen their understanding of themselves, building a greater awareness of how they think and feel. Counselling allows a space to explore thoughts and feelings about oneself and relationships with others, in a safe, comfortable and confidential setting. I will be able to enable you to make sense of things which trouble you, identify changes you wish to make in your life, provide support for you during this period of change and pay attention to your individual needs.
