It may be that you are having isues around anxiety; low self esteem; relationships; I'd like to offer you a safe environment which will enable you to share your feelings and thoughts without fear of judgment. Building a trusting relationship with you is core to my practice, as is offering an empathic approach - understanding your issues from your perspective.
I have been a counsellor since 2011 and work from welcoming and comfortable counselling rooms in Carlisle. I am a person centred counsellor, which means I don't tell you what to do or how to do it; we work together exploring issues at your pace, and developing strategies that fit for you.
I work with a wide range of clients; young people, adults and older adults. I have worked for a self-harm charity since 2014, and a bereavement charity since 2012.
I can offer day time appointments and evening sessions: short term, 6 - 10 sessions, and long term sessions. Each session is 50 minutes. Together we will review the sessions often so that I can be sure I am offering you the support you want and need, and also look at how the sessions work best for you in terms of frequency.
