Going to a counsellor can be a big step, and it can be an overwhelming experience to be talking openly and honestly, perhaps for the first time, about issues that you have been carrying with you. I provide a safe, calm place to do this and will help you explore these areas of your life, supporting you on this journey.
I have experience of working with young people and adults on a range of issues. Although my main approach is person-centred counselling, I will draw on lots of different tools and techniques to ensure that you are able to best explore what is going on for you. For many there may be a trigger to see a counsellor, such as a bereavement or relationship breakdown. For others, it may be relieve ongoing feelings of anxiety, stress or depression. It is also for people who really aren't sure what is bothering them, but it is a feeling they carry that something in their life is just not right and they just need someone to talk to. Whatever the issue, I can provide an objective and supportive environment to help you.
Exploring your feelings and thoughts in an open, confidential and non-judgemental space can really help you to understand what the blockages are for you and help you to choose how to move forward. You might only want one session or you might find that you need more - the pace and length of counselling is yours to decide.
Please phone or email to find out more and have a chat about whether you feel I can help you with what is troubling you. I am located near the centre of Tunbridge Wells and easily accessible from Tonbridge, Crowborough and Sevenoaks.
