Hello, I offer a safe place where anything that may be bothering you can be spoken about, a place where I will listen without judgement & give you honest feedback with empathy.
Many people who seek counselling do so because they are feeling stuck; the way I work is to facilitate movement and ultimately to restore flow by giving space and time to the feelings and circumstances which have led you to where you are now at this point in your life.
The issues I can help with include; bereavement, loss of any kind, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, sexuality, childhood trauma, anger, spiritual crisis/wounding and many others.
You may have one session, a few, or work longer term; whatever it is that you need.
I am an experienced and caring counsellor and walk alongside you in the spirit of joint enquiry, discovering the best way for you to move forward.
Do get in touch.
