I am an integrative counsellor and registered member of the BACP.
Is to offer a warm, confidential, safe space for us to work with any issues or difficulties you bring. I will listen without judgement, working alongside you in the context of a supportive, collaborative relationship. You are free to discuss whatever feels important, whenever you feel ready and able to do so.
How I work
In counselling, as in life, one size does not fit all. Working as an integrative counsellor allows me to draw on different counselling approaches to best suit your individual needs. You are at the heart of the process. My role is not to give advice but to safely support you in working towards positive change.
Establishing a good therapeutic relationship is one of the most important factors in the effectiveness of our work together, so it's important that you feel comfortable with me. With that in mind, I offer a free no obligation telephone discussion, where we can explore what it is you would like to achieve and how we might work towards that. If you decide that I am the right counsellor for you, we can arrange a mutually convenient time to meet on a weekly basis. How long we work together depends on you and your needs. I offer both short term and long term counselling.
Please feel free to contact me via phone on: 07513 230911 or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your free no obligation discussion.
How can counselling help?
Life can sometimes present challenges that may leave us feeling overwhelmed. Whilst family and friends can sometimes be a good source of support. Most often people find it helpful to talk to a professional counsellor, who is not personally involved.
If you would like someone to listen to you, help you to understand and find ways to manage your emotional issues, then I can help.
People seek counselling for a variety of reasons, maybe you are suffering from anxiety or depression. Feeling that something is ‘not quite right’, leaving you confused, sad or stuck. Perhaps you are experiencing the effects of stress, relationship difficulties or low self esteem.
Developing a greater self awareness can enable you to make sense of what's troubling you. With insight, comes an opportunity to make positive changes in your life, or to simply accept what is.
