Do you feel that sometimes life is just too hard, complicated. You know the answers but just unsure about which direction to take. Confused, frightened, need some support?
Do you find yourself dreaming about how you want your life to be. Feeling stuck, lost, without hope?
Does life seem like you're on a merry go round?
Do you want : Direction
It maybe time to consider putting your needs first!
I offer an integrative approach to work with you. Counselling can be helpful for many issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss and separation. However counselling can also allow you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself opening up possibilities for your future. I offer short term therapy of six to twelve sessions to deal with specific problems or longer term work where you will be able to explore issues in greater depth.
As the level of trust between us develops, I will encourage you to look at aspects of your life, your relationships and yourself, which you may not have considered or felt able to face before. Looking at current issues can help you make sense of how the past is shaping your present, identifying destructive patterns, and behaviours that may be affecting your day-to-day life. This process leads to an understanding that can help you to see things more clearly, reducing confusion and emotional pain, enabling you to move forward whilst deepening your awareness as to the underlying causes of distress.
