Counselling for couples and individuals ....
Counselling offers a confidential, safe space away from your everyday life, in which to talk about issues that you are currently struggling with, in a way that may not be possible with friends and family. You may feel overwhelmed by a particular problem, or you may be experiencing a vague dissatisfaction with no obvious cause.
If there is something troubling you that you feel unable to talk to others about, or which feels too overwhelming, I am ready and willing to listen. If you are in a relationship that feels stuck, or you are experiencing conflicts that seem impossible to resolve, a series of couple counselling sessions can offer a different perspective and the potential for a richer, deeper connection with each other.
I will not "give advice" or tell you what to do. Rather you will be listened to without judgement, and together we will think about and explore ways in which change might be possible. My work is informed by Psychosynthesis, a psychological model which has the capacity to help us understand ourselves and the things that keep us stuck, and to find ways of expressing our true self.
An initial appointment will give you the opportunity to see whether you feel comfortable with me and for me to assess whether I have the appropriate skills to help you. Should we decide to work together, I will generally recommend a series of six sessions (weekly whenever possible), with the option of continuing beyond this period if this feels beneficial.
I hold sessions in Hereford, and evening and weekend sessions can be arranged.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their Ethical Framework, which includes having regular professional supervision, and I have full professional liability insurance.
