Every one of us at times face challenges and dilemmas – milestones in our lives and transition points that can leave us confused or emotionally charged. You might be feeling anxiety, unhappy in your relationship, dis-satisfied at work or experiencing ill-health or loss. You may be lacking in confidence or unsure of the way ahead. Sometimes we need to step back, review and refocus – to look at what matters to us and to make new decisions that support us. Whatever it is that you are facing at this time there is a good chance that counselling or Psychotherapy may help you find your way through. Its a great opportunity to sort out what is going on inside and to express thoughts and feelings you might never have expressed or even acknowledged to yourself before. It is a safe space to explore whatever is important to you at this time and to explore decisions and changes if that is what matters to you most right now.
I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor. I work holistically and aim to support you to find your own answers and your best way forward. It is my role to encourage a safe space for you to share your experiences and feelings, dilemmas and choices and to support you in achieving the outcomes that are right for you.
