A bit about me.
I am here to offer you support to explore why you may be feeling anxious or unhappy, or because you find yourself repeating behaviours which do not seem to be healthy for you. We all go through tough times and sometimes we get to the point where we need some help in dealing with things. I will not judge you and will aim to support you to find the right solution for you.
I have worked for some years in various support roles, including mental health, and it was this journey which led me to counselling. My work with Mind and The Olive Branch have given me experience and training to support you through your difficulty times. I will work to help you understand why you fell anxious or find yourself repeating situations which are not good for you. I will support you to uncover your answers and to work out how to do things in a way which works better for you. Many of my clients have suffered from depression, stress or other issues and I have supported them to understand why they feel like this and what they can do differently. In helping people on a short-term basis, I can offer coping techniques which often prepare them for beginning a longer journey of looking at how they would like to make changes to improve their lives.
As a counsellor, it is my aim to give you the space and support you need to explore your thoughts and feelings and to help you resolve your issues. I will provide you a safe space, and will listen without judgement, and will work with you to find some insight into how to bring about positive changes in your life and relationships.
As a counsellor in Alton, I am happy to see you at Pure Alternative Therapies and feel lucky to work in a beautiful building.
How can I help?
Anxiety or feeling as though something is not quite right is a common theme and something I work with a lot. We all have times when we feel anxious or unhappy, but if it is continuing it can help to get support in dealing with these feelings.
Have you found yourself perhaps feeling alone or unable to cope? Counselling can help you work through these times and I am here to support you in this.
I will listen to what is worrying you and support you to explore how you could feel more comfortable in yourself and your life.
We will work together at your speed and according to what feels important in the moment. We may look at situations which have been similar in the past and look at how you might do things differently.
I offer either long-term or shorter, fixed-term counselling depending on your need or circumstances, and work on a face to face basis.
What can I help with?
I offer support with relationship or family issues, anxiety, depression, everyday concerns, low self-esteem or confidence, unhealthy behaviours or thinking patterns and many other difficulties you may be facing. I can offer coping techniques which may aid you to deal with everyday life while you work on making the changes you want in your life. I can support you to discover how you might bring about these changes and be more comfortable with who you are.
You are welcome to call me for a chat or email me your number and I will call you at a time which is mutually available.
