I am an integrative counsellor who offers individual one to one counselling in a safe and relaxed environment. I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is the most important variable for effective counselling. I believe that counselling is not an easy process but that it is a worthwhile process where people can learn to understand and to know themselves more fully.
Sometimes in life we find ourselves no longer experiencing the joy or happiness we once did. We can feel lost and alone and struggling just to manage the basic tasks we have to fulfil. Our health and relationships can suffer because we are consumed by something we don't know or don't recognise . Sometimes we have experienced an event that has changed our life and changed who we are and we think we will never get back to a more contented time in our life. Counselling can provide a space to explore our thoughts, feelings, relationships and our experiences in the presence of another person so that we find greater understanding of why we are suffering. This process helps us to reflect on ourselves and to make choices and changes in our life if that is what we want and sometimes this process allows us simply the space to grieve for ourselves and to find more compassion for ourselves.
Before I became a counsellor myself I held little trust in the process of counselling believing that I would never be able to trust and rely on another person. I held little value for the belief that talking and exploring ones own feelings and thoughts could be helpful. That changed for me when I entered into my own counselling and was fortunate enough to meet just the right counsellor for me. She became the first person I learned to fully trust in my life and through the process of understanding myself and learning to trust in myself and on another person my life and how I manage my life, my stress and my relationships has changed. I believe in the process of counselling.
