"I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kind of things you can't see from the centre" Kurt Vonnegut.
Feeling sad, anxious, stressed, stuck or depressed? Facing important changes in your life, experiencing loss, having relationship difficulties?
My approach to counselling is Person Centred which means that you are the centre of our work I am here to be alongside you and will endeavour to help you help yourself.
I can offer you a warm, confidential and safe place to explore your feelings and where you can talk freely about the things are you are struggling with. Together we can identify and look any any problems (past or present) that you are experieincing in your life and where you might be stuck in patterns of behaviour that are no longer helpful.
Understanding the past can help us make sense of the present and help us to develop a deeper understanidng of who we are and how we are in relation to others. I offer a creative approach which can help you experiment with new ways to cope with stressful issues.
The aim of counseling is to help us become more aware of our true selves and how we function in the world. Increased awareness with support from the therapeutic relationship can develop our own capacity for choice and change. I believe that each individual has the potential within themselves to live a creative and fullfilling life.
i can offer you support in areas such as:-
- depression - negative feelings
- low self-esteem
- stress, anxiety, panic
- anger - difficulty in expressing feelings
- bereavement, grief and loss
- life changes e.g. retirement
- relationship issues
As well as working in my private practice, I supervise counsellors working in a Drug and Alcohol agency and a Hospice.
