Everyone is unique, and through using a wide range of counselling approaches, I am able to work with you in a way that is best for you as an individual.
Our counselling relationship will be collaborative - you will bring the experience of being you and I will bring my experience and knowledge of counselling.
I will listen to you and aim to help you understand your situation with more clarity, in a professional, empathetic, compassionate and non-judgmental way.
I will work sensitively to help you explore the difficulties you are facing. Understanding these in more detail and sharing the impact they have on your life may help you to see the difficulties in a different way.
We can work together to explore whatever aspects of your life you may wish to change or improve. Counselling can make a real difference to your life.
It may be that you are experiencing deep feelings of sadness, hopelessness with no motivation for the future.
You may be increasingly stressed and anxious, feeling that you are isolated and separate from all that is happening around you.
You may be struggling with irritability and anger, finding yourself being overly defensive or being hurtful towards others.
Counselling can help with all of these experiences, helping you to identify the causes and support you in overcoming them.
The counselling I offer will always be person-centred, ensuring that our sessions are focussed on you and what you want to talk about.
I will also use other methods to bring a holistic approach to our time together- taking into account your psychological, spiritual, physical, behavioral and emotional wellbeing.
