People seek counselling for a host of reasons. Whatever your reason my aim is to provide an environment where you can be heard and understood. We can explore the impact your past may have had and in so doing you may feel better able to understand your feelings. As a counsellor I do not advise you what to do, but in our work together there is the potential to feel better equipped to make changes necessary for you to live your life the way you want it to be.
I have worked with people experiencing anxiety, depression, loss, abuse, bullying, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties and family issues.
I am a member of the BACP.
Sessions are fifty minutes long. We may work on a short term or long term basis.
