The Natural Medicine Centre
72 High Street
At times in our lives being able to share our thoughts and feelings with another human being can be so useful that we wonder why we waited to make the decision to move towards change. I believe each of us has a basic human need to be understood and loved and respected for who we are and when this doesn’t occur, as so often is the case, we lose our own ability to show any kindness to ourselves and have the potential for self destruction which can play out in many forms of human behaviour.
I practice in a way which respects the individual person for who they are and offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for us to explore what is causing you concern. The relationship between us is always at the heart of the work and through trust and understanding it becomes a key component to making sense of where the difficulties lie. As an integrative counsellor I am able to adapt my therapeutic approach to each clients individual needs.
In our therapeutic relationship we work together and try to understand what has brought you to this point in your life which is causing you concern, and to help you make sense of what may have happened in the past or is happening right now and preventing you from living and growing towards your ever present potential. There are many reasons why people seek counselling; grief, isolation, fear, anxiety, relationship issues, work problems and depression to name but a few and there are many ways to approach these human concerns.
