In times of difficulty it is good to be able to talk to someone confidentially about your concerns. I am a psychodynamic counsellor with a life time of working in the caring professions and 10 plus years of experience in counselling. I work with individual adults looking at problems like: depression, anxiety, low self esteem, mid-life crisis, major life changes, difficulties at work, bereavement, family conflict, relationship problems, sexual and emotional abuse.
My practice is set in the small, peaceful, hamlet of Halmore, just outside Berkeley, surrounded by fields and trees with plenty of parking. There is a wonderful view of oak trees from the practice window.
I believe that events in our past life can condition how we relate with ourselves and with others in our lives today. If we have unresolved experiences they can affect us profoundly. Sharing can be the road to resolution, development and growth.
In telling your individual story you can start to experience a sense of relief, a sense of being heard and feeling of being accepted for the person you really are.
The sessions last for about 50 minutes, and usually done on a once weekly basis at the same time each week. Daytime and evening appointments are available.
