About me and my therapy practice
There are moments in many people's lives when external events can feel overwhelming or you may be feeling low and unhappy yet not able to understand why. You may have experienced a bereavement or a life changing event in your life and just need space to talk.
As a Person Centred Counsellor I believe each person is the expert in their own life 'It is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried' (Carl Rogers)
Our therapeutic relationship will be underpinned by trust, empathy, unconditional positive regard and genuineness.
I will actively listen, reflect and provide a supportive, caring and non-judgemental space to enable you to collect your thoughts and talk about anything that is troubling you. The sessions will give you space and time to think about yourself and your needs.
Together, we will work at your pace and explore any trauma, loss, past hurts and difficulties you may be experiencing and begin to untangle your world.
My background in Social Care and Training and Development for a number of years showed me everyone is unique and their experiences are individual to their lives. My belief is that mental health labels do not define a person and are often an outcome of what has happened or is happening to that person.
