Welcome to my profile page. I hope you will find it helpful for what you are looking for.
I offer my clients a supportive environment, my full attention, empathy and compassion. I have many years' experience of working with people in difficult situations. I am easy to communicate with and to build trust with. I provide a secure and confidential service where you would feel confident and able to express and understand yourself better .
Whatever uncertainties and challenges, however confused and overwhelmed you may be feeling - Counselling is a helpful way to explore what is happening to you and to find ways to overcome difficulties. You will learn to articulate, convey and understand what is going on for you.
I believe this is best done with someone by your side, not in isolation.
I will work together with you at your own pace, to build a solid therapeutic relationship as you embark on this process of self discovery and awareness, so that you can begin to develop a fresh outlook and new perspectives on the issues concerning you.
I believe in the wholeness of mind, body and soul. We will be looking at your emotions, thoughts and physical responses. We will work through the here and now, which means looking at your experiences in the present and how they may be affected by past events and relationships, in order to enable you to move forward with greater insight and learning.
I am person centred in my approach and I creatively combine Gestalt therapy and Cognitive Behavioural approaches. I will invite you to notice your body, the container of your sensations and emotions, and to employ what feels comfortable and natural to you, such as using art, writing etc. to enhance your experience.
I am more than happy to chat on the phone if you are interested in more information or if you have any questions.
"You are one of the easiest people to talk to I've ever met, and you have the empathy to get to the heart of issues and problems quickly." (Kev, a client)
