About me

It takes courage to seek help and I feel privileged when someone chooses to come and see me. I have 13 years experience working with issues around relationships, anxiety, procrastination, blocks in creativity, lack of confidence and lack of meaning.

I feel privileged when someone comes to see me because, although they may be suffering, they are also experiencing the opportunity for growth and change. As Victor Frankl writes, "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves".

RELATIONSHIPS
Clients often bring issues with relationships and fundamental to my approach is that it is through relationships that we learn most about ourselves and can also be most challenged. For some these issues manifest as difficulties in approaching and maintaining relationships and for others that their relationships become strained and dysfunctional. However, what is usually revealed is that what is needed is to come into relationship with oneself.

Coming into relationship with oneself is essentially the context for counselling. This may be revealed through a brief piece of work around very specific issues or can also be a longer journey. I have worked with some clients for many years and for some, just a few weeks. This depends on what is appropriate for their individual needs.

ANXIETY
Many people suffer with anxiety and these fears can be painfully debilitating to their lives. Fears, when faced, can quite miraculously disappear, yet others, have their root in the existential and are not so much overcome as integrated and the effect diminished.

PROCRASTINATION
Procrastination is a double edged suffering and you are not only not doing what you want to but you are also never free of the need to do it. It can manifest in what can be dire situations. Research shows that 20% of people suffer with procrastination and if it was diagnosed as a mental health issue it would be the most prolific. Counselling allows you the space to look at what you want to do, what is stopping you and how to do it differently. I am trained as both a counsellor and a coach and in my experience I have seen how these two approaches can complement each other: As a counsellor, I offer a safe and confidential space which is intended to help clients work at depth, and I am aware of the importance of the Will and how it is also through action that our lives transform.
