Counselling is where you can experience compassionate support as you search to find a way through what troubles you most in life.
The experience of counselling is so different from many other relationships in life: it is non-judgemental; it is aimed solely at what will be helpful to you; it is a space where you can be heard fully, deeply, compassionately.
By attending counselling each week, you create the time and mental space to think about where you are in your own life, disentangle difficult relationships, recover from the impact of past events.
I work with a wide range of couples and individuals -- diverse backgrounds, abilities, sexual orientation and gender identity -- using specific training in relationships, adult sexuality and family systems them to gain insight and fresh perspectives on life and relationships.
It takes courage to take the first step towards counselling, but out of that courage grows the hope that things can get better with insight and personal growth. I warmly encourage you to consider taking that step.
