Hi, I am a counsellor who likes to work with clients at their own individual pace and capacity, to help them understand their own personal needs, throughout their counselling journey.
I work with clients in an Integrative way, which means I offer a Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural approaches with my therapeutic work. Clients can work either short or long term depending what is needed.
I aim to offer individuals a safe, comfortable place to explore their situation to be able to express their own feelings without being judged by others. Although you may be offered challenge to help you with possible distorted thinking, and other learnt behaviours that you wish to change or accept.
I respect that you have your own values, opinions, and experiences that sometimes can be emotionally painful and exhausting. I will listen and will try to understand you, by offering you a space where you gain a different perspective on your own personal situation, so you may feel in an improved place or enable you to make some possible life changes.
I believe, for some clients it is necessary for change to enable them to flourish; although changes are often painful and challenging. It can be helpful to talk to a counsellor who is able to remain neutral and supportive, to help you visualise and understand your own difficulties from another perspective. This will hopefully increase coping strategies to help you more effectively through various difficulties and loss. Eventually you will be able to accept new situations, and will be able to work towards your own resolve.
