About me

                  Engaging in Counselling can be an extremely effective experience.

Self awareness through counselling can be very empowering, and contribute to gaining the extra strength you may need to make the changes you may be searching for.

I invite clients to a safe, warm, confidential and non-judgemental place to talk things through and make sense of their difficulties. Listening with a non-judgmental approach can hugely help clients to clear their confusion and make sense of how they feel and what they want to do about it.

How I work:

My work involves looking at how we learnt to function and grow as individuals in the past, which hugely helps inform our present feelings and behaviour, with the view to moving on with our lives in a more helpful, happier and positive way. I work helping clients to identify their personal challenges & fears, their unique patterns of functioning/behaving. This style of counselling supports exploring together any limiting beliefs that may be responsible for holding you back and sabotaging your future potential.

I chose to train as an integrative counsellor, studying many modalities of therapy , because we are all different and "one size does not fit all".

For me this means I am able to value and work in a way that best suits all of my clients unique ways of being.

Below are some of the areas of expertise that I work along side clients with.

1. Self:
- Understanding how you feel about yourself
- Strengthening your sense of self and self worth
- Body Image

2. Relationships:
- Identifying and improving troublesome relationships. Understanding your repeated patterns in    relationships that may be limiting your happiness
- Cultivating loving and trusting relationships 

3. Work related issues:
- How to confidently be seen and heard.
- Working through to find out if you are where you want to be.
- How you can show your potential and gain stronger job satisfaction

4.Stress & Anxiety:
- Managing and learning to control your anxiety, rather than it managing you.
- Be able to take control of overwhelming feelings and thoughts so they don't sabotage your day and life.

5. Parenting:
- To grow in confidence as a parent and/or step parent.
-  Understand your family as they grow from toddlers to teens.
-  Learn discipline and boundary structures to encourage a more stable family relationship.

Further information

For 3 years I volunteered with Carers West Sussex as a Therapeutic Counsellor and Assessor. Caring for someone with emotional/physical disadvantages can be an emotional rollercoaster, feelings of  isolation, guilt, loss and sadness are some of the issues that were worked through between myself and clients during this time.

I have experience mentoring young adults within the YMCA community and vulnerable families within the West Sussex area. I also have experience working with people from all walks of life who have or are experiencing addictions to drugs and alcohol.

Much of my work is about supporting clients who are struggling to make healthy and happy attachments during relationships, or clients that are finding difficulty leaving toxic relationships. Understanding your own unique internal programs that are running and maybe need updating can be key to personal successful change.

I am also a member on Life Coaching Directory which advertise my knowledge and skills in helping people gain stratergies for the change they want.
