We seek counselling when we are faced with the many different and difficult problems that life can throw at us.
Anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low self esteem and addiction are just some of the very common responses that we may have to these difficulties. Sometimes we don't know exactly what's bothering us. Maybe we feel sad, or unfulfilled, or we can't even pipoint what is causing us distress.
Counselling can really help with all of these issues. By providing a confidential, understanding and non-judgemental space, we begin to talk freely about our problems, really explore what's going on, and what we can do about it.
This is exactly what I provide for my clients.
I'm approachable, friendly, understanding and knowledgable in the areas I specialise in. I work from the Person Centred model of counselling, meaning that you have total control of the sessions and we will only discuss what you want to discuss. I am also experienced in psychodynamic therapy and will sometimes use other therapeutic approaches, where needed.
My background is within the veterinary industry and in teaching, where I have extensive experience in supporting veterinary surgeons, nurses and students. I also have experience working in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
My setting is extremely private with very good parking. E-mail, text or phone me and I will get back to you as soon as possible to make an appointment, or even just to answer any questions you may have.
