Professional Therapy for Personal Healing, Growth and Recovery...
Have you been experiencing challenges in life?
Perhaps you are suffering from anxiety, depression, or overcome with low thoughts & emotions. You may be having problems within your personal relationships or troubled over past relationships? Struggling with unresolved underlying issues, fears or suffer emotional pain or insecurities?
Counselling can help you overcome whatever difficulties you are faced. I can offer you a safe, comfortable space in the form of one on one affordable private counselling and together we can work through and resolve these.
I am a fully qualified and professionally registered therapeutic counsellor, holding qualifications in further holistic therapies in order to support my clients through the therapy process to the very best of my ability.
I am an integrated counsellor interrogating 4 of the main counselling approaches to the therapy (Person Centered Counselling, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, CBT and Psycho-dynamic Theory) in doing so I am to tailor the the counselling to the client rather than the client to the therapy, aspiring to work with my clients in order to suit their personality as well as meeting their individual therapeutic needs.
Please be advised I will only work with you if I feel I can help you, should this not be the case I will do my best to advise of an alternative.
I will strive to help you in any way I can which usually comes in the form of one on one counselling however this can be adjusted should your needs require so. I work from various professional, comfortable premises and can offer you the choice of Newtownabbey or Belfast, in special circumstances I may consider home visits. I also offer the option of Skype, online or telephone therapy should you prefer. Both short and long term therapy available.
