Do you find yourself struggling to cope with life's challenges?
Do you need time and space to reflect on things in a safe,confidential and non judgemental professional environment?
Whether anxiety and depression or family issues and relationship issues many of us, no matter how old or how young we may be, can face times when we need support to cope with and make sense of the experiences that life presents us with. You may be experiencing feelings of worry, anxiety or depression. You may be trying to cope with the effects of a traumatic life changing experience or be facing an uncertain future or you may just know that you want to change an area of your life.
Whatever the cause of your concerns,working with a professional counsellor or psychotherapist can provide you with a unique opportunity to explore your feelings in a safe, confidential, non judgemental professional relationship.
I am a fully qualified experienced professional Counsellor and Hypnotherapist working independently in Corfe Mullen on the outskirts of Wimborne in Dorset and also in Westbourne.
My belief is that you already have the tools and resources that you need and that given the right conditions in therapy you can find your own solutions or find some level of balance or acceptance around your experiences, and for each individual that involves a unique journey.
Our work together is about reconnecting you with these tools and resources and helping you to develop your awareness around your thoughts and feelings, your behaviours, attitudes and actions or reactions in many situations.
Through this exploration you will find new ways to take support from your environment, to experiment in doing things differently and become more actively engaged in choosing to live your life the way you really want.
