Life can sometimes not go exactly to plan either by your own or others' choices. This can lead to unpleasant experiences creating unwanted resistance, emotions and feelings which can leave us sometimes feeling stuck, incapable of making sense of what's going on and not knowing how to move forward. In turn, it can lead to harmful behaviours to yourself such as smoking, excessive alcohol and drugs to dull the pain.
Bereavement of loved ones including pets, relationship breakdowns and problems at work can cause stress, anxiety and depression.
As a person-centred counsellor of experience, my aim is to provide you with a safe and supportive environment wherein you can explore what is troubling you, reach decisions, as appropriate, and move forward with your life.
I offer counselling for a broad range of presenting concerns, including relationship difficulties and breakdown, anxiety and depression, stress at work and personal development. My working days are Wednesday's and Friday's (9.00 am - 1.00 pm) and I can do Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings (6.00 pm to 8.00 pm) and my practice is to arrange an initial session, for which I charge my usual fee, so that we can judge whether we will be able to work productively together. I welcome enquiries from both Adults and young people (17+).
