Ruma Verma BA Hons, Dip Transactional Analysis Counselling
I will work with you to provide a safe and confidential counselling space in which to explore patterns of relating without judgment and above all with empathy and compassion.
Often, when we feel empty, stuck, low or are experiencing struggles in our personal or work life we may think about coming to counselling.
I have worked in the corporate world so I appreciate and understand the pressures that are experienced working in a highly charged and intense environments.
Counselling enables you to consider what the issues maybe, to explore how you think and feel about them and to uncover how you relate to others and indeed to life. It is provides a new focus and reflective space to gain awareness and insight into your processes and to provide you with support and growth. It is a safe place to experiment to enable you to have choices and options going forward.
Each individual's unique experience will enhance the personal encounter and we will explore and uncover it's meaning for you and I; us.
My way of working is relational so I will keeping a close eye on how we relate with each other and the unconscious dynamics that come into play between us.
I will work with you for a time limited period or open ended and we can discuss this when we meet and agree what works for you.
