Do you feel that life is currently a struggle for you? Do you suffer with work stress or feel alone, misunderstood or unheard? If you are finding it difficult to cope with any aspect of your life, I can offer you a confidential space to speak freely and honestly, without judgement, so you are able to explore your thoughts and feelings. We can work together to make positive changes so that you can start to feel more in control of your life
I am a fully qualified Integrative counsellor, that enables me to offer a wide variety of tools, techniques and support to anyone looking to resolve a particular issue, seek clarification, or learn new ways of coping.
By listening and talking things through, often different perspectives on situations come to light. Counselling can help to tackle past and present difficulties and when future struggles arise you are more equipped with self-awareness and the necessary skills to tackle them.
