I am a counsellor working within easy reach of Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham. I offer a warm, compassionate, accepting, confidential space where you can explore your feelings. Whether you are suffering from depression, a generalised anxiety disorder, have suffered a recent bereavement, separation, divorce or loss, have just reached a time in your life that feels 'stuck', or are feeling sad, it can be helpful to talk to someone and be heard as you explore how you are feeling and what is happening for you.
You may have received counselling before or this could be your first experience. You may want a few sessions to explore a particular issue, or you may want to work longer term. It may be that you have a particular issue that you would like to resolve or it may be that you are looking for something deeper.
Counselling, long or short term can make a huge difference to your quality of life and relationships.
My training in Integrative Transpersonal Counselling enables me to draw on many approaches including; Psycho-dynamic, Gestalt, and Transpersonal. My approach means that I can be flexible to your needs and find what works best for you. I am interested in dreams, art work, myths and archetypes which help to deepen our understanding and hear the call from your soul.
I will travel with you on a journey to greater self acceptance and self compassion, validating your experience as you deepen your self understanding.
My practice is within easy reach of Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and Cirencester.
I have worked with people suffering from depression, anxiety, relationship problems, issues around reaching mid-life, bereavement, people who feel stuck and unable to find meaning in their lives and people who have suffered trauma both recent and in the past.
Most important is the the relationship between client and counsellor and so it is important to find the right person. If you are not sure whether I would be the right person for you please feel free to contact me and arrange a chat. It might also be helpful to look at the BACP website which can give some guidance to help you find the right counsellor for you.
