A qualified person-centred counsellor, I provide a friendly and confidential environment, offering clients a safe place to explore their deepest thoughts and feelings. I have experience in working with depression and anxiety, a wide range of mental health issues, bereavement, terminally ill and those coping with or living with illness. I feel very passionate about my counselling work and my sole focus is on working with each individual to help them find whatever it is they need from our time together.
HOW COUNSELLING CAN HELP
I will work with you to understand your experiences from your point of view. It is my aim to provide a safe place for you to explore your feelings and share any thoughts and issues you may have. The hope is that through sharing you will start to feel better and more in charge of your own feelings and life. During our sessions I will be non-directive, believing that you have the ability to make the right choices for yourself regardless of my own values, beliefs and ideas.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Anyone interested in working with me should call or email to book a free introductory 20 minute session, we will talk about what you want to get out of counselling and see whether or not you feel comfortable working with me, if you are happy to continue we can set up a second session and arrange to meet with you on a weekly or fortnighly basis, whichever works best for you.
