“No one has ever listened to me like that… I never felt judged, which was important, because I’ve always felt like I was to blame…” – (Maidenhead Client).
I provide a safe, secure, supportive environment for you to be heard. Whatever the nature of your distress, I will listen to you with kindness, acceptance and empathy. My aim is to understand you, in an environment that is free of judgment. As a client-centred counsellor I believe you possess within you the resources to disentangle your distress, and my role as therapist, is to help to facilitate this.
“I felt like I was drowning, our sessions allowed me to breathe on a weekly basis… you helped me make sense of my chaotic relationships... I thank you deeply”. – (Windsor Client)
My understanding of distress comes not only through academic study, but also from personal life experience. I have sat in both the client and counsellor's chair. I believe that my personal life experience can enhance my ability to empathise with you, and gain a true understanding of how you feel.
Perhaps therapy is something you have been contemplating for a while. Maybe you have been, 'brushing things under the carpet', or 'walking on eggshells' within a relationship. Therapy can provide the opportunity to take an honest look at what is going on, and to explore these issues at depth.
