I offer a safe confidential place to talk and where you are never judged. I offer you a somewhere you can be yourself. I offer you time that's all yours and I will listen. Having someone who will listen can help you listen to what you are saying. You can hear the thoughts feelings and attitudes that have been restraining you. Maybe you are not reaching the potential you know you have or maybe your relationships fail or you are angry and don't know why or maybe childhood experiences invade your thoughts and dreams. You can change if you want to. With over 25 years experience of inviting clients to talk about their issues at their own pace I have come to understand that sometimes the changes that happen with counselling can initially seem uncomfortable but it doesn't take long for those changes to feel comfortable and safe.
CBT has been proved to work with depression and anxiety. I have been helping people overcome these two areas of mental distress that can prevent life fulfilment and may be socially debilitating. Admitting that you have depression and/or anxiety can be scary in itself. Dont suffer in silence I can help.
"Sometimes what you're most afraid of doing is the vary thing that will set you free."
The counselling relationship is important which is why I offer a free 30 minute telephone or face to face appointment with no obligation to continue.
I work individually and with couples and families. I believe that you are the one to direct how we work together. I will listen and help you change thoughts and behaviours that conflict with who you want to be. Sometimes a thought or behaviour is the result of past traumas or childhood experiences so having a safe place and someone you can trust to unpack your worries cares and issues is essential for your well-being. With my support we can travel your journey together to the person you want to be.
