I am an intuitive, integrative counsellor working near Thame, Oxfordshire. I use a combination of therapies to help you find your way. Working as a team we put together a plan so that you can achieve your goals and live the life you’d like to live.
Having lived abroad for many years and working in a high-stress environment in the corporate world allowed me to reflect that I needed to make some dramatic changes in my life - I was burnt out, stressed and exhausted. It was make or break and that’s when I made the decision to become a counsellor so that my own life experiences would enable me to help others.
Perhaps you feel stressed and exhausted too and you may be looking for a therapist because you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Do you feel flat as if there's no joy in your life, overwhelmed and anxious? Perhaps you’ve been feeling this way for some time but have made the decision to look for answers so that you can resolve the issues that have built up over time and go on to experience a life that’s different from one you are living now.
The therapeutic relationship is really important; we need to be able to work together with a feeling of mutual respect and understanding and this is why I offer a free 20 minute initial session so that you can meet me and ask any questions you may have.
When you come to your first session with me we will go through everything that is important to you, and then together we'll formulate a plan to help you work through your issues, set your goals and then get started.
Counselling, like any other therapy, requires a commitment from you to want change. Once you have truly decided that, it is just a matter of working together to make sure that change is reached. There will undoubtedly be challenges on the way, sometimes you take a step forward and two back, but that’s something we will work on together. We decide together how many sessions you’d find useful and then assess as we go along.
Please contact me if you think we might be able to work together.
