Are you dealing with anger, bereavement, loss, relationship difficulties?
In a confidential, non-judgemental and safe setting, integrative biographical counselling aims to help you recognise and manage the blocks and patterns that inhibit you, so that you can live life more fully and achieve your true potential. Within a trusting relationship, you can gain a clearer view of the present and the past in a way that promotes moving positively towards your future. I make use of an integrated approach to enable you to gain insight and meaning in your life experiences, which can bring renewed energy, a feeling of empowerment and greater confidence to meet life and its challenges.
