Life comes with tests and struggles and we are all vulnerable at times. Counselling and psychotherapy can facilitate positive change to move forward and to help us feel heard and understood.
Reasons for seeking help might include:
- personal development ~ building confidence , self esteem and assertiveness
- experience of low mood and/or anxiety effecting work or personal life
- difficult life experiences e.g. bereavement/loss, divorce, relationship struggles, work related stress and more
- past or recent trauma which you feel ready to speak about
- discrimination or internal conflicts relating to your cultural or religious identity
I offer a safe and confidential space working collaboratively with you, offering symptom relief tenchniques initially if needed, and further on, exploration of other issues you want to bring.
My training allows the integration of a variety of different approaches to suit your needs and I can adapt accordingly.
As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), I abide by an ethical framework which assures that I am working to do the best I can to help you.
