9a High Street
I value the unique individual qualities which you already hold and firmly believe everyone has the capacity to think and therefore take responsibility for their life.
My style is to work with you collaboratively, empathetically listening to your story, without judgement. I provide a confidential, safe space centred around you. We’ll explore any difficulties that you might be facing, these may include deeply buried stressful or emotional feelings, thoughts and beliefs, inspiring you to find your own answers.
I consider all human beings are worthy of respect acknowledging they have within them an in-built desire to achieve their full potential with a powerful desire for growth with a goal towards positive change. I also incorporate mindfulness, meditation, and experiential approaches into my practice.
I offer long and short term face to face counselling in the Crowborough area.
