The first step in talking to someone you do not know can be a difficult one, and I am able to offer you the experience of accepting you as an individual, to ensure that you are central to this talking therapy. I believe that having someone to listen to, and is trusted is important in developing a relationship which is open and honest to allow self expression in a safe environment. To develop an awareness and understanding of our self is the way forward, to build upon in our journey towards feeling better about our self, which can be by taking one day at a time. By working together we can look at ways to manage a difficult situation you may be in, by looking at ways of helping, which could be behavioural, how we are thinking, educational, or knowing you are supported.
Being there is crucial and that first step in contacting someone who is willing to walk alongside you on a pathway leading you to walk alone with confidence, possessing your own identity and sense of purpose can be very meaningful and fulfilling. I hope that you can contact me knowing that I will be someone you can trust and not be judged and be given the space to lead the life you want to live and help you understand the problem or loss you may be encountering so you can find a place for yourself.
I work with adults, young people, families and groups whether that be siblings, friends or other relationships.
I have experience in working for specialist mental health organisations for adults and children in schools, and also for a bereavement charity.
