About me and my therapy practice
Trying to find help can be a daunting process, especially when you are already feeling low and confused. By exploring this site, you have taken the crucial first step. Counselling can really make a difference when things get tough – feeling heard, understood and genuinely accepted helps.
Even if you have supportive family and friends around you, it may be easier to talk about personal, family or relationship issues with an independent and professional therapist. I offer a safe, warm, non-judgemental and confidential space where we can explore your feelings and thoughts.
I will walk alongside you, helping you identify, understand and address your difficulties. You may already know 'what's the matter', or you may just sense something's not right in your life. You may feel desperate, or you may simply want to explore who you are and who you aspire to be.
Whatever it is, we can find ways to actively work together, easing your distress and healing what hurts. We can figure out what suits you best in terms of time and commitment.
The counselling I offer is based on the person centred approach, which means that it is based on the belief that within each of us is a part which “knows” who we are and what we need. Given the right environment, this part of us develops and guides us. Sometimes we lose touch with this inner sense of self, perhaps because we didn’t have the right environment in the first place, or because things have happened in our lives and we have lost our way. In counselling, we can work together to create the right environment to support you in tuning into the part of you that knows who you are and what is best for you.
You can decide how long you want to attend, how deep you want to dig, and with regular reviews we can make sure you are getting what you need from our work together.
I will do my best to be honest and genuine, and to empathise with you.
