My counselling approach will support and engage you in a reflective process, with the intention of helping you to develop insight and awareness into how and why you are suffering.
Together we will explore alternative, more skilful choices available to you - wiser choices that offer freedom from present difficulties, and support the prevention of unecessary cycles of suffering in your future.
Alongside talking therapy and its therapeutic value I also offer the option of complimentary mindfulness practices.
These very popular wisdoms will support you in developing greater harmony with your emotional world and enhance your confidence to tolerate exposure to present difficulties that might feel overwhelming.
Mindfulness practices are above all practical, imaginative and creative ways that help promote emotional integration and feeling more in control of our lives.
Whether in your home or work life, family relationships or friendships, these experiencial skills are proven to be very effective in helping create freedom from difficult mental states such as depression, anxiety, anger, cycles of addiction and more.
As well as offering practical skills, wisdoms and insight, my talking therapy and mindfulness approaches offer a gateway to the discovery of a more authentic you, a more integrated you, more at peace with yourself, others and the world.
I will listen empathically to what you have to bring and offer a supportive, hopeful and non-judgemental relationship where you can bring all of yourself, warts and all.
Clients inform me that I'm an approachable person with significant awareness of cultural diversity.
