What I offer:
I aim to provide an accessible, inclusive and counselling service that offers a safe, non-judgemental space for all clients. Having worked with a diverse range of clients, I am able to appreciate that there may be many different reasons why someone might consider counselling. As a journey, counselling starts with the bravery to take the first step.
Areas of Focus:
I understand that the relationships that we form and the experiences we have can shape way that we understand the world around. There may be times when those make us feel uneasy and the chance to reflect and think out aloud is necessary. Having support, an objective ear can help to better understand ourselves and how we relate to others. This can be related personal relationships, our working life, family challenges, life events and many aspects of the world around us. It is important to be aware that you are not alone; you will be heard and listened to.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental space where you are the primary focus. I understand how the different roles within our lives, expectations and norms can impact upon the way we live our loves. I am further aware of how different experiences can be shaped by our culture, identity and awareness.
It is important for me to be able to understand how you experience the world and how this impacts upon you. I believe that to be invaluable in making sure that you have safe, non-judgemental experience that allows you to be heard. All your concerns will be held, valued and supported to ensure that you are at the centre of the process.
