During these unprecedented times feelings of loneliness, anxiety and sadness can become all too real. Please do get in touch if you would like to talk through some of the issues that you are facing and work out how best to deal with them so that you can feel empowered to build your confidence and self esteem to lead a happy healthy life.
To find the best in a therapeutic relationship I believe it’s important to have empathy and understanding of a client’s needs, to show trust and be non-judgemental and work together to bring the best possible outcome for each individual or couple. I help support all my clients so that they can feel relaxed and safe enough to be able to speak openly and really begin to understand and deal with their feelings and emotions and the issues that they feel are holding them back. Often it helps to explore your anxieties that are causing you stress and worry and hindering your ability to manage your life in a positive way. I can help you make positive changes to your well-being, help you to feel in control and look forward and enjoy your life and your future again.
As a member of the National Counselling society I abide by its code of ethics, and therefore bound to provide a safe, confidential place in order that clients can feel secure and talk freely and be fully supported.
In addition to my private practice I also work for a charity that works with women who have been victims of modern slavery.
I am able to deal with many issues, including:
- Significant others within an addiction
- Relationship Issues
- Bereavement and Loss
- Self Esteem
If you feel that I may be able to help you then please do give me a call to discuss further and if you feel you would like us to meet we can arrange an initial consultation.
I can be flexible with appointments.
