Counselling can offer theÂ time we lack in everyday life toÂ acknowledge and examine the anxieties or frustrations that we are currently feeling. It can also create the space we need to reflect on the assumptions and beliefs that might be underpinning these feelings and which may be burdening or overwhelming us.
As a counsellor I have worked with:Â depression, self-harm, retirement anxiety, exam/work stress, relationship breakdown and bereavement. My experiences both personally and professionally haveÂ involved working closely with diverse social and cultural considerations such as ethnicity, religion, sexuality, sibling rivalry andÂ class.
I have 20 years previous experience as a personal trainerÂ working with clients who wanted encouragement, support or advice on issues includingÂ body image, ageing concerns, weight management andÂ self-esteem.
