Welcome: I am a highly experienced practitioner providing short-term and long-term counselling and psychotherapy.
The counselling process can be a powerful catalyst to awaken the seeds of hope, renewal, and courage. It is an opportunity to take stock, undertake an inventory of one's life circumstances, and consider what is necessary to leave behind and how to move forward. Counselling enables us to rebuild a life, gain insight, and become fully functioning despite what life throws at us.
The 'forgiveness model' is a proven tool for good mental health.
The forgiveness process is a multi-layer holistic approach to self-discovery and rehabilitation back into life. It is a form of emotional, psychological and social restructuring of your present life and life as you have lived it.
Reasons you may decide to undergo counselling in the forgiveness model can include:
1. Desperation - The psychological and emotional pain is too enormous to enable you to function due, for example, to trauma, a break-up or a serious incident that has occurred.
2. Curiosity - An internal calling that there can be no other avenue of freedom and release other then forgiveness. You have been dominated by anger and resentments for too long.
3. Timing - Others have achieved a sense of peace and freedom from undergoing the forgiveness model, and you want to achieve this for yourself. The timing is appropriate.
4. Journey - You have tried other avenues of healing, which have been steps to getting you to undertake this work. You have been building up to this.
5. Intuition - It feels like the right path and process. Your gut instinct tells you that you can get through this process.
6. Exhaustion - You are tired of the old repetitive dysfunctional patterns, and living in the past, or for other people.
7. Maximise your potential - You would like to achieve the most from your life. Free of all obstacles and obstructions that have resulted in years of pain that have been building up, and which now influence everything you want to achieve.
8. Loneliness - You would like the maximum benefit from your social and family relationships, and also minimise passing on trauma to your children.
9. Helplessness - Your life has become unmanageable. You have reached a dead-end and have nowhere else to turn.
10. Guidance - You have lost faith in yourself and/or in humanity. You need total restoration, and a belief that life can change.
What is ground zero?
It is as if the heart has become hardened or is in danger of irreparable damage. This is the type of situation that requires urgent help of a significant magnitude. No-one else around you can fully understand this level of devastation. And it requires immediate action.
This is ground zero; our impact zone, our eclipse, our shadow, our spectrum of non-forgiveness. The point of impact that would change and challenge us for ever.
We know that life will never be the same. That we will forever be something other than what we are now .
This is the symptom of the unforgiving heart. When the damaged caused to us is more then we can bear.
An act or intention for forgiveness is a start to a long process of rehabilitation of the heart and of your life itself.

Sessions are 50 minutes. Arrangements are made to suit the needs of the client, but most clients have weekly sessions.
The first step is an initial assessment of your needs to determine whether counselling and psychotherapy is right for you. Our counselling sessions take place on a one-to-one basis at my private clinic, and last for 50 minutes. The aim of counselling is to create a safe, non judgmental, compassionate environment. All discussions are confidential, and I am bound by the BACP Code of Ethics and Practice.
I always look forward to meeting and working with new individuals and sharing their journeys with them
