I offer a safe space where you can speak to someone in confidence who will listen as you talk through your thoughts feelings and problems, working with you to understand your difficulties without criticism or judgement. I can help you explore the things that are causing you trouble and come to a better understanding of yourself. Learning to accept and trust in yourself and your owner natural inner resources you will grow in confidence and self-esteem and draw on your own strengths to bring about real, meaningful change and growth.
I spent four years working in a specialist domestic abuse service with both men and women who had experienced trauma as a result of physical, emotional and sexual abuse. I worked with both current and historic abuse including issues of historic childhood abuse.
Survivors of abuse often suffer with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and mental health problems. The focus of counselling differed for each client but commonly involved working through complex emotions and traumatic experiences.
Over the last 18 months I have been working in the NHS with adults who have been diagnosed with autism and other neurodevelopmental conditions. This work has included an in-depth exploration of self identity, social isolation, individual difference, learning disabilities, anxiety, emotional regulation and management of stress.
I also have knowledge and experience of working with single parents, bereavement, chronic ill health and pain, caring for the elderly and those with dementia.
