Welcome and thank you for viewing my website.
The Counselling I offer provides a professional, safe, and non-judgmental space in which to explore your innermost thoughts, feelings, and concerns with an experienced counsellor.
My core approach to therapy is person-centred, however when appropriate I may integrate other techniques into the work that allows me to adapt the therapy to best suit your needs so in effect puts you the client at the heart of the therapy.
Having the opportunity to talk and work through the difficulties and concerns you are experiencing can often help to understand and make sense of the current situation and provide potential opportunities for change and to move forward in life.
"Reaching out and helping you to talk about what matters"
People come to counselling for many different reasons. Life can be so demanding at times that it can feel quite overwhelming.
Maybe you are feeling sad, anxious, isolated and alone, or you might feel that others are not listening to you or that you are being misunderstood.
You may be experiencing relationship problems or have experienced a bereavement or loss, maybe you live with chronic illness, disease or pain or maybe you have a different kind of life changing event or trauma that you are struggling to cope with or it could be that you are at a crossroads in life and not sure which way to turn.
Whatever your reasons are for seeking out counselling (Covid-19 related or not) nothing you bring is considered to be too big or too small a problem because if it’s causing you distress then it matters.
