Sometimes life can be overwhelming , worries and anxieties inhibit our daily life. Whether it be present or past issues making our everyday become more challenging, I can offer you a safe place where you can explore your emotions and thoughts without being judged or advised. A place where you will be listened to and heard. I believe that by exploring why we feel or react a certain way, or why we keep making the same choices, we can become more aware and understanding of ourselves allowing for growth and change.
My work is client led and I work upon each clients individual needs. Counselling gives you a time that is just for you, a place to reflect on what is going on for you in your life, a space to be heard. As well as working in private practice I also volunteer for a charity for men that have been victims of sexual abuse and rape.
Finding the right counsellor for you can feel daunting, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I offer a reduced rate initial consultation so that you see how you feel in the room and if you feel comfortable with me. It is a time where you discuss what you are looking for from counselling and see how we can work together.
