I have a wealth of experience in successfully treating people's emotional problems as I know there is always hope even in our darkest of moments. You may feel that you need to talk to someone who is really interested in your story and your feelings and for that person to be impartial and non-judgmental.
When you begin to talk you may get a ‘light bulb’ moment where you gain some understanding about how you’re past has affected your present and how these repeating patterns can hold you back from gaining your fullest potential. My focus is on the importance of helping you explore your feelings in a safe environment and caring by giving you space and time. My hope is that through working together you will be able to start to take control of your life, as I believe everyone has the right to a happy life.
Counselling is a unique relationship; based on empathy and understanding.
