The Aim Clinic
Unit 6, Oakhanger Farm Business Park
Counselling provides the opportunity for individual expression which can bring more clarity of the events and issues that matter to you. It raises personal awareness of any limiting beliefs that may be influencing your decisions and actions. It helps to talk to someone who is not a friend, family member,more colleague etc. in an empathic, confidential and non judgemental environment.
I believe that an essential element to our work together is building a trusting relationship that is dedicated to understanding you, so that you can feel a greater sense of empowerment and freedom within your life and in your future. I am non-directive in my approach, and I can offer creative pathways along which you may enhance personal meaning and awareness.
I work with people who have come to counselling for many different reasons, but I have developed a special focus and interest in the following areas: anxiety, depression, relationship problems, self-sabotaging behaviours, insecurity about making changes, and feelings of emotional isolation. I have experience of the challenges that ADHD can bring to individuals, families and within relationships and can provide an empathic environment for those who live with chronic pain.
My volunteer work has allowed me the privilege of working with those who face life-changing illness at the Royal Surrey Cancer Hospital in Guildford and with children, teenagers and adults, during and after bereavement with the Bereavement Counselling Charity.
I currently work at a senior school and a sixth form college with children and teenagers during a critically important transitional time period in their lives. Additionally, I work at PARCS, the Portsmouth Abuse and Rape Crisis Service with children and teenagers.
If you would like to discuss working together in more detail, I would be happy to meet with you for a complimentary 30 minute consultation.
