If life is not as you'd like it to be, counselling could help you......
We all need support at times in our life. Some difficulties can feel all-consuming. Counselling enables you to look at your situation in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space and see things from a different angle.
I have experience of working with a broad number of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, self-harm, trauma, addictions, anger, difficult relationships, abuse, family break-ups and eating disorders.
Maybe you want to look at a specific issue? Or maybe you want to look at your life in general - how it is now, if past experiences are affecting you, what you want for your future. I am happy to work with you short or long-term.
Counselling sessions with me offer you the opportunity to explore all parts of your personality - to celebrate what you like about yourself as well as acknowledge what you are not so happy with. I believe that when we know our personality more fully we have more of ourselves at our disposal. We can express ourselves in our own unique way and tap into previously hidden potential. We need not be dominated by one way of being or behaving. We find freedom and choice to be more of who we really are.

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis* counselling, which belongs in the humanistic field of counselling. I also have a Certificate in Counselling Children and Adolescents.
I have a Diploma in Counselling Supervision and am happy to supervise groups and individuals.
