I offer both Individual and Relationship Counselling to adults over 18 years old.
I’m an Integrative Counsellor, using various therapies tailored to suit your specific needs; including Person Centred, Emotionally Focused, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)
Life can be complex and bring different challenges which can affect many areas of our lives.
I am extremely passionate in helping you to deal with these challenges in order that you can lead a happier, more enjoyable life.
Thoughts and feelings have a real affect on ourselves, our behaviour and how we react and cope in all areas of our lives. I feel it is important to work through any challenges / issues so we can move on and be happy both within ourselves and within our relationships.
I feel that being genuine, open and honest and building a professional relationship of trust with clients is key to successful outcomes for clients.
I am a very dedicated, genuine, professional who focuses on getting the best possible result for all clients.
Looking specifically at ways to work through things with you is something I work hard to achieve with yourself. This way the counselling sessions are realistically going to be more beneficial to yourself.
I realise that you have different priorities at different times so I try to work as flexibly as possible.
I work with a wide range of issues including:
- Addictive issues
- Alcohol /Substance abuse issues
- Life Coaching
- Anger management
- Self-esteem /Confidence issues
- Stress management
- Domestic abuse
- Relationship issues
- Eating disorders
