About me

Throughout life we experience many different changes such as divorce, bereavement, work, relationship and family issues.   Within these times we tend to 'cope', feeling family and friends provide us with enough support.  However, changes, difference and upset may have caused a sense of sadness, sometimes without knowing why.

To cope with this not knowing, we may place ourselves at risk or use coping mechanisms such as food or alcohol to avoid feelings that we do not understand or perhaps feel confused about.

Within the safe, confidential relationship of counselling, we can look at these different feelings and where they may come from.  Over time, being open and honest can allow the individual to find their inner strengths, allowing growth, understanding and an acceptance and discovery of their own uniqueness.
