Sometimes you may need things to change but don't know where to start...
There are many reasons why people consider counselling, each situation being individual and personal to them. I will work together with you to understand your unique situation, find ways to
overcome difficulties and enable you to move forward in your life. I will not criticise or judge you, but work with you to understand your thoughts, feelings and actions. Counselling can
bring up uncomfortable thoughts and emotions from the past and present but I will be there to support you and offer a place to express those emotions safely as it not unusual for people to experience
tears during sessions.
I am experienced in helping people in counselling with a variety of difficulties including:
Anxiety and stress
Bereavement and loss
Health related issues
Relationship, couples and marriage counselling
Post-natal depression (PND)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
Phobias, fears and addictions
Miscarriage and stillbirth
Termination of pregnancy, abortion
Fertility issues, IVF
Low confidence and self-esteem
Work related issues, employee counselling
Return to work and mediation
Emotional and sexual abuse
Separation and divorce
I am also experienced in providing counselling to children and teenagers.
Counselling sessions last for one hour and it is a time for you to talk and be listened to, so together we can work towards understanding and promote change in your thoughts, feelings and
behaviour. I tailor my approach to your individual needs and situation. Sessions are usually weekly initially, but not always, and I will work towards longer times between sessions.
I focus on creating a working counselling relationship that is conversational, encouraging, supportive and solution-focused, helping you to explore your unique situation and find a solution that
Counselling offers a safe space to explore your emotions and make sense of your feelings during difficult times, so that together we can explore ways to achieve a positive outcome or come to terms
with your situation.
Counselling provides people with an opportunity to speak to someone outside of their immediate circle of family and friends. As a therapist I work in partnership with clients to gain
understanding and enable change. Sometimes I may question your thoughts but I will not judge you, I will work with you to understand your situation.
If you feel that counselling could help you please call me to discuss your situation and arrange an appointment if you wish to.
