At certain points in our lives we can feel a little overwhelmed, just needing a space where we can off load our problems and worries. I offer a non-judgemental and supportive environment where we can work together to help move you in a direction that brings positive change. My empathic approach offers understanding and appreciation of the difficult times that you may be going through.
Often the people I work with donâ€™t know exactly what is wrong, only that they are struggling in some way and want to feel better again. This can be confusing and frustrating as you may feel that you cannot get away from these emotions. Counselling can offer a companion to help make sense of your inner world and experiences so that you can find your own answers and understanding.
Every person is unique with their own way of interacting which is why I approach each new counselling relationship differently according to the needs of the individual.
I have experience working with adults aged 18+ at Aire Valley Counselling where I supported people covering a wide spectrum of issues such as anxiety, depression, loss, relationships and life transitions. I have also spent time volunteering with Age UK attending support groups with adults aged 60+ who wanted an opportunity to share their worries.
As well as working with adults I have volunteered with Place2be for the past year and half, working with children in school which has led to me completing my Level 3 Certificate for Counselling Children.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor which means that I draw on knowledge from different models of counselling in order to find one that best suits your situation and ways of being.
Whatever your reasons for seeking out counselling, we can work together towards a brighter and more positive future.
I offer both short term and long term work where we can decide together which will better facilitate your needs.
I also offer Skype sessions where we can discuss together to work out the most suitable times for us both.
