I specialise in anxiety, depression, sadness also in other areas including; family issues, relationship problems, loss and grief, trauma, low self-esteem.
I offer a safe, private room, where you can explore your difficulties and what you are experiencing in your life at this time.
Your identity and all information is kept securely and confidentiality is of the highest standard.
I understand the courage it can take to make the decision to start counselling, and can assure you that you will find my counselling style warm, holistic, respectful and non judgmental. From the core values of my counselling ethos, I always relate with empathy, integrity and honesty. I will support you safely through the counselling process. No problem is too small.
I offer the ability to just listen when life experiences and feelings need to be voiced and heard. I can help you to understand yourself more fully and facilitate finding the right way forward for you.
I use an integrative counselling approach, which means I am trained in a variety of different approaches and therapeutic techniques. From these I tailor the counselling to suit each client's specific needs, in order to give the right expertise in each case. Depending on your difficulties, I can equip you with techniques to help you achieve your counselling goals.
I can offer short term or long term counselling.
