There are times in life, when we need something different to the support provided by the people that are close to us.
Whether you are experiencing relationship issues, feeling anxious or depressed, want to change patterns of thoughts/behaviour or just need to talk to someone who won't judge, I can help.
Providing Safety and Calm
A new perspective on life, and on ourselves, often enables us to have the rich, and satisfying, existence that we all deserve.
I provide support to people who find themselves in a difficult situation because they are, for whatever reason, unable to think clearly or resolve their situation themselves. I offer a confidential service with understanding, acceptance and support in a safe and comfortable environment.
How can I help?
The aim is that through counselling you will achieve greater control of your life. In gaining some understanding of your inner world, I can help facilitate a period of acceptance and change by enabling you to talk about emotional difficulties and periods of crisis.
And what are the benefits?
Prioritise what's important
Gain a stronger sense of your self
Overcome limiting beliefs
Gain control over problematic behaviours
Work towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life
