Counselling can make a significant difference to the quality of your life, helping you find greater meaning and personal satisfaction. You may be trying to cope with life changes, low self-esteem or hopelessness and the many other challenges we face in life.
You may feel frightened or unsure if you are considering starting counselling as placing your trust in another may be new to you, but this will be the foundation of a relationship which will support you to explore the meaning of your experiences both past and present.
I offer a sensitive and impartial space in which the difficulties you may be be experiencing can be identified, collaboratively explored and worked through. Understanding the meaning of our experiences and how they may cause us suffering are the first steps towards gaining symptom relief, lasting change and the freedom to live our lives more fully.
I have 30 years experience working within the NHS as a Registered Nurse and offer my knowledge and experience to those suffering with long-term illnesses and terminal illness.
I am an Integrative counsellor which means I can use varying therapeutic models to help you make better sense of your feelings.
Our initial meeting will give you an idea of what counselling is about and will be an opportunity for you to explore your hopes and expectations. If counselling feels right for you at this time, we can agree on the time, frequency and cost of sessions and confidentiality issues.
I abide by the BACP ethical framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I offer both long and short-term face-to-face counselling and I am flexible with day time and evening appointments.
I also visit private homes, hospitals, nursing homes and residential care homes.
