Why go to counselling?
At times in our lives it can feel hard to talk to friends or family members and this is when it can be very helpful to speak to someone who is unconnected to your day-to-day life. I can offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment which will allow us to explore together whatever is troubling you.
As humans we are creatures of habit and we often unknowingly repeat patterns of behaviours. By becoming aware of these patterns we gain personal insight and through this we can change the way we think about ourselves, the way we experience life and the relationships we have with others.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and see clients at my private counselling practice near Farnham and Aldershot, there is ample free parking. I work with adults over the age of 18 on an individual basis.
As well as seeing clients privately I am a Volunteer Counsellor at a Hospice. I have particular experience in working with patients with life limiting illness, carers and bereavement.
Call me for an informal and confidential chat or email me if you prefer.
