Counselling is helpful when life presents challanges such as anxiety, stress, depression, relatiionship problems, family issues, trauma.
My counselling approach is interactive and equal, myself and the client working together on the issues they bring. I am interested in helping people feel a sense of belonging, and of courage to tackle what life throws at them. We work together to find a way to change our response to difficulties, to give ourselves more choice.
In my private practice, I work with young people and adults, including families and couples.
I also work with couples, exploring communication, dealing with challenges as a couple, encouragement for the individual within the couple and how this can help resolve many issues.
I am also a qualified Family Counsellor, happy to work with the whole family, to explore the dynamics that cause friction in daily life, and to find ways to increase cooperation, so that each family member has a place in the group which is equal and valued.
I am a member of National Counselling Society (MNCS (Accred)).
I also offer supervision for counsellors and others in the helping professions. This can be one-to-one or in small groups. Contact me for details.
