You know when something doesn’t feel right. And perhaps you find yourself feeling uneasy and unfulfilled, maybe even depressed or anxious, and you can’t quite figure out why. Maybe you have tried to carry on but life seems an uphill battle and you feel overwhelmed with emotions.
Sometimes in life we don’t know where we’re going, or we become stuck, or something happens that stops us in our tracks. That’s the time when seeking a counsellor can be of real value.
As an experienced Integrative Humanistic Counsellor I can offer you a confidential, compassionate and supportive environment for you to explore and express feelings and thoughts which maybe troubling you or causing you distress.
As your counsellor I will encourage you to :
- Explore and gain insight upon any aspect of your life experience that is difficult or causing you concern.
- Reach a greater understanding and self awareness.
- Discover positive coping strategies for yourself where needed.
- Explore and create choices which can help you to be a more fulfilled and a happier you.
I have worked with a wide range of clients and have supported them to resolve for themselves what may have been troubling them or causing distress. I have been fortunate to work alongside them to support their growth and witnessed clients flourish to gain a greater sense of well being and balance which ultimately gained them a more understood and in most situations a happier self.
