About me

I have 28 years experience working with adults, teenagers, couples and families in very many various scenarios.

How can I help you?

I think this is a very interesting question, as first of all before we can work together or have an answer to these questions we need to talk and listen to each other. We need to make sure that we both feel comfortable and trusting of each other in a relational way, so one step at a time. I guess there was a trigger that prompted you to say to yourself, 'I can't/won't/put up with/feel this way or do this any longer. And that's when you were activated to look into who you might contact for help and support. I am extremely interested in your story, the issues that you feel are challenging you right now or maybe have done so for some considerable time. In listening I will already be hearing how you see 'yourself' in your world, 'your' coping strategies that 'you' use at this moment in time that are working for you, or that are not working for you quite so well even when you are doing your very best. So that's how we can start our understanding together; and of course next we need to establish what your feelings and needs are whether you want short term counselling where we look briefly (eight to ten sessions) at how you can resolve a particular issue. Another option could be whether you feel ready to enter psychotherapy which is longer term; where together we explore, your 'individual sense of self' which is, the type of person you wish you were, is who you really are, but haven't yet learnt to be. At all times you only go as far as you feel able to go at that particular time with an aim that you feel supported and safe and able to get on with your life when you leave after your time here;( in between sessions and when we complete our time together).

We must have to be courage to be imperfect. Life is about striving for personal effectiveness, not about perfection. Perfection would be a static condition with no future; Life is about movement - movement from a minus to a plus.
