If you are reading this, you may have reached a low point in your life. You may be finding it hard to cope and you do not want to / cannot discuss with family or close friends the pain and difficulties that you are experiencing. Counselling offers an opportunity to explore feelings and fears that are troubling you in a professional, non-judgemental, confidential working relationship. By taking the brave step of considering counselling, the process of change has already begun.

Choose the treatment plan that meets your needs:
- Brief solution based therapy and coaching - Brief solution focused therapy is more like mentoring. This brief therapy is an approach to psychotherapy based on solution-building rather than problem-solving. It explores current resources and future hopes rather than present problems and past causes. Coping strategies and helpful techniques to help you manage are identified and typically it usually involves up to six sessions.
- Psychotherapy: One of the key objectives of psychotherapy is to help you gain a better understanding of the issues that are troubling you. Psychotherapy helps you work out new ways of approaching situations that you find difficult, as well as exploring new methods to help you cope with ongoing and challenging situations. By developing a trusting relationship with your psychotherapist, you are able to explore the more complex layers and talk through long-standing problems. It is a longer journey and may last several months or, in some cases, more than a year.
Online Skype Consultation: I provide online counselling and psychotherapy as an alternative for people who can't meet appointments.
Choosing the right psychotherapist or personal consulting coach can be a daunting.
My first assessment session is complimentary. This is an opportunity to get a better sense of the counselling options on offer and a chance to ask questions and clear up any concerns.
