About me and my therapy practice
We live in a complex, busy, challenging and changing world, and within this world there are many different types of experience for us to cope with. For the most part we are simply able to get on with our lives, but sometimes we may need support to help deal with an event or situation. Most of the time we find ways of dealing with our problems by talking to friends or family, but sometimes their advice isn't enough, or we may feel too embarrassed to tell them what's really bothering us. At these times counselling is a useful option, I will listen to you, and work with you for you to find the best ways to understand and resolve your problems.
Whatever your concerns or problems, counselling is a safe confidential place where you can talk freely. I offer a non-judgemental space for you, and as much time as you need to gain more insight into your problems. I will encourage you to tell your story and give voice to your concerns.
I see my role as helping you to grow by promoting your self acceptance, and empowering you to find your own solutions. I believe we all have the capacity to develop and become the person we’re meant to be, because you are the expert on yourself and have the answers within you. When we can share our feelings, concerns, conflicts and confusions in a safe and accepting environment, we can experience healing.
I am a fully qualified humanistic integrative counsellor and that means I believe that everybody has a natural potential for growth and change. I offer a free 30 minute introductory session which gives us an opportunity to meet, discuss your needs and for you to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
