Our own thoughts/feelings are unique to us - this inner world can sometimes be self-destructive; negative thoughts or self-doubt. An everyday occurrence or a rollercoaster of conflicting emotions.  This may lead to anxiety/depression and/or confused feelings.

Anxiety/Stress can cause irritability and reduce our ability to cope with the pressures of life. Trauma, Bereavement, relationship issues and family issues are all experiences that can be very difficult and painful to deal with, and we can feel very alone and isolated. Perhaps there is someone to talk to, but they do not fully understand how YOU feel and the effect it may be having on you.

I aim to offer an opportunity; a counselling service in a purpose built room (with toilet facilities) from my home in Oakham, Rutland. I offer face-to-face counselling, either short-term structured or long-term therapy, usually weekly or fortnightly sessions. I can offer daytime & evening appointments.

My approach to counselling is integrative, fundamentally built on the person-centred approach.(there are information pages available on the 'counselling directory' explaining the 'types of therapy'). My aim is to provide a safe environment where your thoughts and feelings are given the time and space to be voiced and heard.

We all experience problems in our lives at some point, whether you may be going through a period of crisis, or perhaps you are hoping to change some self-defeating patterns of thinking and behaviour. When we are troubled we often don't know what type of help we need we just know we need help and struggle to find a way to manage our emotions. Telling someone you know (family/friends) may be difficult because it is personal and private, and they may offer their own opinion and advice, which may be not what you are wanting to hear, you may just want to let your troubles out.

Counselling offers different help; it provides a non-judgmental response, counselling encourages you to work through painful feelings, to grow in self-understanding and confidence, to explore and develop coping strategies by looking at your options.

I am a registered member of BACP and I am eligible for accreditation, my ethical obligations and duty of care towards both clients and my profession are very important to me.

I do not charge a cancellation fee, but would appreciate an email/text to inform me prior to arranged appointments.

I work with teens, adults, couples & elders/veterans.
I also lecture in counselling.
 
I have an Enhanced DBS Certificate.
