Individuals, Adolescents and Couple Counselling - Relationship Issues - Depression - Anxiety - Low Self Esteem - Self Harm and Bereavement
People seek counselling for different reasons. Often in crisis when something has happened, the overwhelming problem can feel beyond our coping abilities and out of control.
When we experience difficulties we can start to feel 'bad' about ourselves and/or others. We may turn to other coping mechanisms such as self-harm, drug misuse, alcohol, gambling, eating disorders, suicidal feelings or other behaviours that may not work for us.
Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing distress. It can provide a safe and regular space for you to talk in a confidential setting, exploring your difficult thoughts and feelings. As you unfold your feelings, the counsellor can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to the problems.
Sharing your worries and fears can be a huge relief with someone who acknowledges your feelings, as well as supporting you to find alternative and positive outcomes.
I work with individuals, couples and adolescents experiencing personal difficulties such as panic attacks, anxiety (stress), depression, self harm, suicidal feelings, addictions, childhood trauma (abuse), eating disorders (including body image and identity). I have over ten years experience working with individuals, couples, families and young people in Educational, PCT, NHS and Women's Refuge settings.
I provide a high quality confidential short and long term counselling practice dependent upon your needs. We would initially meet to assess what your issues and needs may be, and if you feel Counselling will help.
I have a private practice working from home Nr Hartfield/Forest Row and GP Surgery in Crawley Down working with couples and individuals.
I am an accredited member of BACP and work in accordance with their code of ethics and practice.
