Are you finding your life or your relationships a struggle? Whether something has recently happened to you, or if you have been struggling for sometime counselling can be really beneficial.
I am a qualified, experienced counsellor who has helped many people with a wide range of difficulties. I offer a warm, professional and supportive style, enabling you to explore your difficulties without judgement or criticism.
As your counsellor I will really listen to you to understand your difficulties and support you to think about how things could be different for you.
Typically individual counselling is arranged for weekly sessions, however depending on circumstances I can offer flexibility to accommodate your individual needs.
I have been a counsellor for over 10 years and have experience in working with a range of issues including:
- Anxiety and Generalised Anxiety Disorder
- Feelings of panic
- Low Mood
- Low self-esteem
- Feelings of worthlessness or emptiness
- Difficultly dealing with anger
- Eating disorders
- Relationship difficulties
- Suicidal feelings
Couples counselling can be helpful to identify and talk through the difficulties you are facing in your relationship. Having time together with a professional counsellor to support you can help you to work through your difficulties, help you to find solutions and find a way forward.
Couples counselling can be arranged for weekly or fortnightly sessions. Typically couples come to counselling for between 6 to 10 sessions depending on individual circumstances.
