About me

HOW CAN COUNSELLING HELP?

These are the kind of benefits that my clients achieve as counselling progresses

  • become calmer
  • stop worrying so much
  • solve problems
  • sleep better
  • improve relationships
  • build confidence
  • relax and be happy
  • generally improve well-being

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?

My style of counselling is mainly Person-Centred, which aims to empower you to discover solutions to issues, with my support. You talk about whatever you feel able to and we gently explore your issues. This might involve looking at what's happening in your life right now, how the past can still impact you in the present and recognising how your automatic thought patterns might be affecting you. The process allows new insights to emerge, a change in how you perceive things and the potential for different approaches to some areas of your life. It leads to healing.

WHAT KIND OF ISSUES CAN BE ADDRESSED?

My own life experience means that I am able to readily empathise with the difficult emotions that we all sometimes encounter. I believe these difficult feelings are often associated with the kinds of losses we inevitably face, including bereavement, health issues, separation and divorce, children leaving home, relocation, redundancy...so many kinds of change loss. Circumstances can leave any one of us grieving, feeling sad, lonely, despairing, stuck and unable to move on. When talking to people within your own circle of family and friends is no longer enough, then turning to a compassionate person who is trained to listen impartially, can really help you gradually to come to terms with how you’re feeling, to be a little kinder to yourself, to become more of a whole and to recover your equilibrium.

Training, qualifications & experience

MY OWN EXPERIENCE OF HAVING COUNSELLING

During counsellor training, whilst I worked for the NHS, I experienced counselling myself and remember feeling a little daunted about finding someone I'd have an affinity with. However, I was soon reassured and the feeling of security during our weekly sessions is one of the things I found sustaining.  I felt very safe throughout the process.  It felt as though the counsellor knew me well, she really cared, I could say whatever I wanted... and I felt so much better.  I trust this process and want to bring the kind of benefits that I received, to my clients now.
