Life can be stressful and problematic, either in the short- or long-term. If you need to talk through some of your difficulties with me, then I provide an environment which is compassionate and accepting. I will give you space and opportunity to process things through, helping you to make sense of your situation and to understand yourself better; and help you to work through difficulties towards resolution. I think of the counselling process as a voyage of self-discovery; and this provides an investment into your future well-being and happiness.
I will work on a one-to-one basis with adults over 18 years old; and I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, anger, bereavement and loss, depression, feelings of rejection, relationship problems, self-esteem, stress, unresolved past issues, to name but a few.
Some people may seek counselling because they're currently experiencing a "glitch" in their lives where things seem to be going wrong; others have experienced psychological distress for a long time; still others find that issues from the past are affecting their functioning in the present. I can help you to explore any of these. I can use a variety of approaches - such as aspects of CBT - to suit differing needs and temperament types. Some people want a faith-based approach, which I am also qualified to provide where appropriate.
Sessions are generally 50-60 minutes long; but the first session will be used for an assessment; this will be to see if I, the counsellor, can best meet your needs at this time; and therefore can work with you. There will be no charge for this first session; and it will be approximately 30 minutes long.
