Counselling provides a safe supportive space for you to be yourself without judgment, I will provide a comfortable, safe, confidential space where you will be supported through your difficult and positive times away from any outside distractions.
The ultimate aim of counselling is to provide the opportunity for you to work towards living a more satisfying and fulfilled life. Counselling helps us overcome difficult situations that may be past or present within us. I will offer you the opportunity to explore thoughts, feelings, fears and dreams in a safe confidential non- judgemental way.
People approach counselling for many reasons for example, you may have lost a loved one, be having relationship / marriage problems, have feelings of stress, anxiety or self doubt, you may be seeking counselling because you feel lost or stuck in life. Have feelings of sadness, it may be addiction, self harm or any form of abuse. Whatever your reason is I am an empathetic counsellor that will work with you through the difficult and the positive times ahead.
Many experiences in life can leave us feeling confused, angry or hurt. My aim is to see things from your prospective and help encourage you to move forward where you feel you can see things with more clarity encourage you to feel more in control, more motivated and fulfilled.
