Are you feeling low, stressed, or anxious? Is life becoming difficult to manage? Whatever is troubling you, talking to someone in a safe, confidential environment can help you make sense of the things that you are finding it difficult to cope with.
I am an Integrative Counsellor, and Clinical Hypnotherapist. I use skills and techniques from several different counselling approaches, depending on your individual needs. Counselling is a talking therapy which offers a way for you to explore thoughts and feelings which you feel unable to share with anyone else. Talking through your difficulties can help you to understand painful thoughts and feelings, and can be the first step towards feeling more positive about yourself and your situation.
When working with couples, my aim is to enable both of you to explore and understand your relationship, regardless of age, sexual orientation or gender identity. Whether you are having difficulties in your relationship, or want to know each other better, couples counselling can help you have a deeper understanding of yourself and your partner.
I believe that building a trusting relationship with your therapist is at the heart of the therapy I offer and it is important that we both feel that we can work together. For this reason you are welcome to call, text or email me to arrange a free 30 minute first session, so we can discuss what is troubling you, and this will give us an opportunity to find out whether we feel comfortable talking together.
I offer short term and longer term one-to-one counselling, couples counselling and hypnotherapy. We can discuss which is best for you either in our first session, or as the sessions progress. We will review how your therapy is going as we work together, so that you are involved in deciding how many sessions you have and when it is the right time for your therapy to come to an end.
