About me and my therapy practice
** SESSIONS ARE AVAILABLE FACE TO FACE OR ONLINE **
Do you find it difficult to make day to day decisions?
Do you feel down and don't know why?
Do you have constant thoughts whirring around your head and don't know how to start untangling them?
Do you feel insecure in relationships with partners or friends?
Do you wish that you could embrace and enjoy life instead of feeling weighed down all the time?
Sometimes, life can feel really difficult - you feel down or anxious or overwhelmed with it all. Maybe you really don't know what is going on for you - you just know you don't feel right.
Relationship breakups, family issues, bereavement, worries about finances, or work can be tough but we soldier on 'being strong' .
Sometimes we are aware that we are carrying 'stuff' from our childhood but keep it locked tight in a box because we don't know how to start dealing with it.
Talking to a counsellor in these situations can be so helpful. You have the space to really talk about how you feel, without interruptions, advice or opinions. You have the space to really work out what it is you want in your life and to let go of things that are keeping you stuck where you are.
Imagine being able to put down all this 'stuff' and move forward feeling lighter!
Person-centred therapy can help you get to the root of the issue - if you imagine you have an infected cut on your arm - you can stick a plaster on it, - and it will help- but that infection is still there. What you really need to do is clean that infection out - it will hurt a bit, and you might have to build your courage up to do it, but once it's clean and healed - it is less likely to bother you again.
Using gentle, empathic guidance and helpful interventions., I will help you to untangle all those thoughts and feelings . We will go at your pace - you are the expert on your life and experiences.
I have several years experience working in a charitable organisation and have counselled carers, those with financial difficulties, those in controlling relationships, and those who have experienced childhood neglect/abandonment or abuse.
My first session
Our first session will be a 'getting to know you'session where we will decide if we are suitable to work together. It is absolutely imperative that you find a therapist you are comfortable with - so if you come along to one session and feel like we don't gel - I completely understand! This is too important for you to not feel comfortable!
Hopefully, we will find we are more than happy to continue to work together. I will explain confidentiality, how we will work together and we will look at where you are now and what you would like to achieve from your sessions.
