As a humanistic counsellor, I believe that people want to be happy and fulfilled in life. We can plan for the future, but life isn’t always plain sailing, and can bring unexpected challenges. You may be dealing with issues that have recently occurred, or ones that you have been putting up with for a long time without having being able to resolve.
Very often, people will make assumptions or jump to conclusions about what is going on based on their own experiences or what their friends advise - and sometimes that just doesn't work and you are still left with the problem. We can (as humans) get set in our ways and repeatedly look at our difficulties from the same perspectives. Therefore learning how to look at each issue afresh with greater flexibility in our thoughts and feelings can germinate the seeds of change.
I offer counselling to people and families affected by Klinefelter’s Syndrome. I have personal experience of the challenges, choices and subtle differences that exist for people living with this condition. I also work with people exploring their gender and sexuality.
Weekend and evening sessions available.
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
