Everyone is different. I know it’s a cliche but it’s true. What works for them does not necessarily work for us. So counselling cannot be just one thing, there is no formula, it must be tailored for each and every individual.
Counselling is the process that we develop together and I believe it will only be as effective as our relationship. If we are able to trust and respect each other and be open and honest, then we have a really good chance of doing great work. In my private practise, I offer a safe and confidential space into which I invite you to bring whatever you wish to look at together.
Although we are all unique, I truly believe that we share the ability to reach our full potential. It is the weight of all that we have picked up along the way and our fears about how Change might break things, that keeps us stuck. We’ve all done the washing-up to avoid making that awkward phone call or watched just one more episode before doing the tax return. These are very trivial examples of how we avoid facing our blocks with distractions.Together we can look at your goals and find a safe way to explore what is getting in your way and then, with my help, you can decide if and how you want to get past them.
I work with men and women ranging from 18-80 from all walks of life and backgrounds and with all kinds of concerns including anxiety, anger, relationship issues, depression, low self-esteem, stress, etc.
I am a BACP registered counsellor and I work to their ethical guidelines of practise. Our first session is free and is for us to establish if we are happy and able to work together and to understand what your goals are for counselling.
