You have taken a huge step in seeking support, now it is finding the right counsellor for you to make a connection with and feel comfortable to share your personal issues in a safe, confidential setting. My work with clients is based on the values of compassion, authenticity and kindness. I enjoy meeting individuals and couples who are invested in their therapy as I work alongside them, to support them to make the changes they want whilst honouring their independence to live a life that is of value and has meaning for them.
I have worked with many individuals and couples who have had a variety of personal issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma, abuse, addiction, relationships, parenting, self-esteem and more. Counselling can strengthen you to grow through challenging experiences by increasing your self-awareness. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for you to be with another person that isn't in your immediate circle who is able to offer you another perspective or additional support.
In addition to providing face to face counselling, I also offer online counselling. Online counselling allows technology to add flexibility to the counselling process without reducing the one-to-one human dimension that lies at the heart of therapy. I am fully trained/qualified in this way of working and offer skype, email, instant messenger or telephone sessions that makes counselling much more accessible to you. For those of you living in remote locations or perhaps those who are housebound, if you have internet access, physical isolation is no longer a barrier to accessing professional counselling services.
Confidentiality: To ensure open exploration of the concerns that have brought you to therapy, I maintain confidentiality in accordance with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions www.bacp.co.uk. I am a registered member of the BACP, and I am committed to complying with this framework as part of the terms and conditions of my membership.
