About me and my therapy practice
Although each therapeutic relationship is different and each client's experience unique, a successful therapeutic relationship can enable and promote in the client, self-confidence, self-esteem, self-motivation, self-belief. This can also increase self-awareness leading to understanding, opportunity and motivation to change through choice.
Counselling built on a successful therapeutic relationship will provide a safe, reassuring 'space' where you feel supported, enabling you to discuss and explore your thoughts and feelings, understand your experiences and promote your wellbeing.
I have been a carer for over 10 years so have significant experience relating to the challenges that can bring, both to the carer and the cared for. I offer telephone and online therapy via a secure chat /messenger service so am able to work with those unable to leave home or struggling to do so, but also those who are used to communicating via messenger services and find it preferable to do so.
