Choosing any kind of therapy is difficult, but when it comes to emotional issues; not only are there lots of options but the selection process becomes more complex because we are in a place in which we feel vulnerable, anxious and maybe even confused. There are times when we can find life challenging – we may feel overwhelmed, feel down or stuck in repeating patterns of negative behaviour.  Emotional turmoil can be brought on by a current crisis, persistent long term problems, depression, anxiety, difficulty in relationships or other emotional problems.  For our own protection we often bury or deny what it is we are feeling, these suppressed emotions then form the blocks or filters through which we live our lives and limit our true potential.

Using a variety of skills and techniques, I will helps clients uncover, explore and express feelings in a safe, supportive, non-judgemental environment. Counselling helps my clients to heal emotional pain, bringing a sense of liberation and personal growth giving them a greater understanding of who they are.

My aim with all my clients is to help them reach their potential.
