Hello, I offer a safe place where anything that may be bothering you can be spoken about, a place where I will listen without judgement & give you honest feedback with empathy.
Many people who seek counselling do so because they are feeling stuck; the way I work is to facilitate movement and ultimately to restore flow by giving space and time to the feelings and circumstances which have led you to where you are now at this point in your life.
I offer short to medium term counselling, as well as spiritual counselling* if requested. Short term counselling is usually from 6-20 sessions, medium term means up to a year.
I am an experienced and caring counsellor and walk alongside you in the spirit of joint enquiry, discovering the best way for you to move forward.
Please see my website for further information, or contact me.
*spiritual counselling has no dogma or religion attached; it comes from the premise that there is an infinite non-physical part of us that connects us to everyone & everything. It holds wisdom & practical solutions we can use to help ourselves - also sometimes called the superconscious, or universal energy.
