I offer a warm, empathetic and confidential service to adults, adolescents and children. I'm an approachable Counsellor who can offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to work through the thoughts and feelings that are troubling or distressing you.
I aim to ensure you feel as comfortable to talk about your issues as you can, to feel listened to, supported, accepted, and able to work through your issues, at your pace. Personal trauma, small or big, past, present, one off incidents or long-term/ongoing, can have an immense detrimental impact on our confidence, self-esteem, ability to think, cope & relax and lead to living with worry, anxiety, stress, low mood & depression. It can be held in our bodies and manifest which can have a negative impact on seemingly normal situations and on family, friendships & colleagues. You may be unsure about counselling and whether it can help. You may feel you have no reason to be feeling the way you feel, or it may be that others have suggested counselling might be something that could help you. Feel free to give me a call to discuss this and/or book a free half hour introductory/initial session.
