For me, coming to counselling means finding a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore certain issues and feel encouraged to take the next steps, whatever they may be. It means finding a professional listening ear to find a new perspective and new tools to deal with life's issues.
I offer a warm, confidential environment where we can explore what you are finding challenging and work together towards your goals. I know it can take a lot to come to counselling sometimes, and I treat each person with respect and acceptance, recognising the potential of each person. Through talking and exploring your reality, it's possible to make sense of difficult things and recognise the resources inside. I sometimes make use of drawings and other creative ways of exploring an area, if this is something you'd like to try. It's amazing what can be understood differently through creative methods.
You can contact me over email, text or phone and we'll arrange an initial session. At this session we can get to know each other - I'll let you know how I work and you can share some of the issues that you'd like to explore. Then together we'll think about the next useful steps - some people have weekly sessions, others fortnightly, some for one or two sessions and others work with me for months.
If there is an area for which you would like therapy that isn't listed below, please call me directly on 07449 084556 or contact the Natural Health Clinic on (029)20 222221 and we can discuss how we could work together.
