From time to time, people can be overwhelmed by expectations made on them by themselves, society, or by the emotional distress caused by problems at home, illness, loss, breakups, or simply by the experience of living.
Counselling is a way in which you can talk to someone, who is not a friend or family member and unburden yourself. Talking to someone in this way, someone who will listen to you in confidence and without judgement can help you see your problems differently.
My counselling experience is varied and includes working with people who have problems with low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, work stress and coping with mid-life transitions. I have helped people overcome issues such as self harm, bereavement, separation anxiety and existential ("meaning of life") anxiety. I also work with both individuals and couples who are looking for support in their relationships.
My approach is integrative and includes person-centred, psychodynamic and Transactional Analysis methods of working. I offer full one hour sessions
My counselling work currently takes place in my home in Harlington and in rooms in Dunstable and Great Denham, near Bedford.
