Why go to counselling?
There are many reasons people seek counselling. It may be that you are considering counselling because you feel the need for change in your life, or it may be a life event that has brought you to consider counselling.
It can be very helpful to speak to someone who is unconnected to your day-to-day life. I can offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment which will allow us to explore together what you bring to the sessions.
As humans we are creatures of habit and we often unknowingly repeat patterns of behaviours. By becoming aware of these patterns we gain personal insight and through this we can change the way we think about ourselves, the way we experience life and the relationships we have with others.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist in Aldershot and Farnham and can see clients for private counselling in Aldershot, Farnham, Fleet and surrounding areas. I understand our lives are busy with family and work commitments, so in addition to day time counselling appointments I also offer early morning appointments and evening appointments subject to availability.
To find out more you could telephone me to book an initial free 30 minute session where we can establish what you would like to gain from your sessions, discuss confidentiality and that we are happy to work together.
My counselling practice is near Aldershot, Farnham, Fleet, Godalming and Guildford and easily accessed from the A31 and surrounding areas with ample free parking.
I work with adults over the age of 18 on an individual basis.
As well as seeing clients privately I am a Volunteer Counsellor at a Hospice. I have particular experience in working with patients with life limiting illness, carers and bereavement.
Call me for an informal and confidential chat or email me if you prefer.
