Are you feeling unsettled and confused? Maybe you are feeling low. Would talking help?
I can offer you a warm, non-judgemental and empathic approach in a relaxed confidential setting. Often, being given the space to have someone listen to you, can make all the difference. You will have the time to explore and come to your own conclusions. I will support you around your needs, at your pace. We will work together to find the best options to help you reach more clarity, informed choices and empowerment.
Counselling experience includes:
- Stress and Anxiety
- Grief and Loss
- Low self-esteem
- Low confidence
- Relationship Issues
- Family Issues
- Work related issues
- Rape and sexual abuse
- Domestic Abuse
I offer counselling for victims/survivors and perpetrators of Domestic Abuse, Rape/Sexual abuse, Stalking and Harassment. I have a wealth of experience in this arena. The impact of domestic abuse is overwhelming and has a vast impact on a person's life, including children's. As a victim/survivor of DA, a person's identity can be eroded, leading to confusion and not knowing who you are anymore. You may feel as if you are in a fog. Maybe you witnessed Domestic Abuse as a child!
Have you reached retirement age and finding you are suffering loss/grief/bereavement? Are you perhaps thinking "what now"? You could be feeling anxious and/or depressed.
I have a special interest in working with the "Inner Child". Have you suffered fron childhood woundings? For example; rejection/abandonment/criticism. So many issues can result from unhappy childhoods, including relationships.
I draw from my training and my experience, to help you along the road. I offer a free 20-30 minute, face to face, initial consultation. This can also be completed by a telephone conversation. We can commence counselling if you are happy for us to work together and I feel I can offer you a counselling service.
