I am an experienced and qualified Counsellor, who offers short and long-term Counselling and Psychotherapy for individuals aged 18 and over. I specialise in helping individuals navigate through the uncertainty and distress that may fall upon them. Many people fear that if they open up, they will never be able to contain their emotions. They question whether they would cope. That is why I am here, to provide a safe and confidential environment that will enable you to create a deeper understanding of yourself and why you respond/behave to situations the way you do.
I work closely with clients to achieve lasting personal change in their lives. The Counselling and Psychotherapy process can make a significant difference in your live. Whatever stands in your way, we can work together to meet your goals.
I take a relational integrative approach to counselling, and as the name suggests, integrative is a combined approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy and brings together different elements of specific therapies. I take the view that no single approach can treat each client in all situations. Each person needs to be considered as a whole and counselling techniques must be tailored to their individual needs and personal circumstances. Being relational therefore my practice philosophy is to provide an experience of a relationship where it is safe for you to explore your feelings and heal from distress.
Whatever you might be going through, whether it be something specific; a recent loss, relationship difficulties, feeling depressed, stressed and anxious or a more general sense of sadness or dissatisfaction. My warmth and acceptance will help us build a trusting therapeutic relationship where you feel truly heard and understood, even when things in your life may be difficult. I will be led by what you need from therapy and will help you explore and understand your challenges and support you to feel empowered to make changes.
