I understand how the demands of daily life and major life events such as bereavement or divorce can leave us feeling overwhelmed, confused or even just sad. I am here to listen to you, about the things that matter to you, in confidence. I appreciate that discussing personal problems can feel daunting and it can be difficult to know where to begin but I can promise you a safe place to express your feelings, listen to you without judgement and together we will explore and try to find answers to your worries and concerns.
To give an idea of how I work with clients, I am a ‘person centred’ counsellor, which in brief means that I focus on my client as an individual, establishing your expectations and gaining an understanding of your difficulties through your experiences and feelings. Working together, we can explore these difficulties, and where appropriate, I will draw on elements from various therapeutic methods and techniques beneficial to your progress.
Some clients are unable to describe how they feel or define the exact reasons why they have come for counselling. I have seen many clients who are uncertain where to start so while I have listed the areas of counselling I deal with, please only use this as a general guide and as a starting point. An area I have a particular interest in is depression and its impact on everyday life, relationships and career – whether you or someone you live with has the illness.
Although difficult, I have attempted to describe myself and how I work in these few words, however if you feel unsure or need to clarify any details then you are more than welcome to contact me without obligation, to help you decide whether I can be of assistance to you. In addition, if you are feeling apprehensive about attending counselling sessions then you are welcome to come along for an introductory session with a friend or relative.
- Please note I do not accept calls from withheld telephone numbers - please leave a voicemail message with your name and contact details and I will return your call as soon as I am able.
