If you are feeling lost, uncertain or are struggling to find meaning in life you may be feeling disconnected from yourself or from others. This loss of contact with yourself, your needs, beliefs and values, may erode your trust in your ability to form meaningful relationships and attain personal goals.
A therapeutic relationship can offer the opportunity to find renewed belief in yourself and in others. It can help to provide self confidence, enabling clearer decision making and the ability to begin to live life in a more meaningful and satisfying way. Trust is absolutely essential in this type of relationship and I offer security, sensitivity, warmth and support enabling you to build trust.
I have trained in and practice the person centred approach. This is based on the theory and philosophy of Dr Carl Rogers. My approach is non directive and non-judgemental, My role is to walk beside you as we work together.
