Counselling is a personal journey of self-awareness and growth, where you'll have the opportunity to speak openly with someone who is not a friend or family member and have the freedom to be you with no limits or expectations.
I offer one to one counselling on a short-term or long-term basis and work in a relational way based around warmth, empathy and understanding. I believe that the relationship between you and I is extremely important as a secure platform for self-exploration and self-acceptance. As an integrative counsellor, I am able to adapt to your needs and provide support which suits you as an individual, drawing from a range of therapeutic approaches to make your experience as unique as you are.
Challenges can occur at any stage of life, and there are no right or wrong reasons to attend counselling as everybody will cope with their experiences in different ways. Whatever your personal circumstances may be counselling could help you to reach a new understanding of who you are, how your experiences have impacted you, and enable you to see things from a different perspective.
