I am an experienced,qualified, BACP registered integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. I have worked with many individuals over the years, helping them to achieve fulfilling lives and relationships, and find solutions that work for them. We can work on short or long term goals and the approach that we can use is one that will fit you and how you live your life.
So why seek counselling with me?
Maybe you are an otherwise healthy person who thinks you can function more effectively. There are things you have always said you would deal with, but never got around to. Perhaps your relationships aren't as good as you'd like them to be, and you'd like a place to reflect and explore your thoughts and feelings.
Or maybe it's past traumas, events, or experiences that you need to resolve. Ineffective patterns in your life which always take you where you don't want to go - maybe you have depression, low self esteem, or anxiety issues that interfere with your work relationships and home life and always seem to be holding you back.
One of the most important predictors of success in counselling is the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client. Your counsellor should be someone with whom you feel comfortable and whom you trust. In your first session you will have the opportunity to come along and ask me any questions you might have about me, how we might work together and what I can offer with no obligations.
Getting in touch may well be your first step towards a new, more fulfilling life. Speaking regularly with someone whose only purpose is to support, value and understand you in a place where you can talk about anything that concerns you; where you can be completely yourself with all of your feelings; a place in which you don't have to pretend with everything you say and do, can be a powerful experience. An experience which can help you to achieve the inner peace and life satisfaction that you deserve.
