About me and my therapy practice
Hi my name is Avril, as your counsellor, I can provide you with a confidential, private and compassionate space in which you feel safe to explore feelings that you are finding painful and distressing.
Through my own life experiences, I have seen the benefits of counselling, as a client and also a practitioner. Regardless of the problem you may be experiencing counselling can help overcome current stressors and arm you with the skills to effectively manage the future.
Has something change in your life that has, overwhelmed you and made you feel isolated? Are you experiencing feelings of anxiety, grief, loss or loneliness? Do you feel overwhelmed and unsure how to move forward?
It is my role in our counselling relationship to support you where you are going, not to lead you in a specific direction. I do believe that each and everyone of us is unique and I will talk to you to find out what you want from counselling.
I am always mindful that you are the expert in your own life, and I know that the most important part of therapy is the therapeutic relationship that we build together.
The journey might sometimes be challenging and difficult, but if it brings you to a place of contentment, understanding, self awareness, and peace of mind, then I hope you feel it will be worth it.
I have my own private practice based in Southgate, North London
