I am a person-centred counsellor who works with adults, young people and children. I offer a safe space to develop a trustful and healing relationship to address issues including bereavement and loss, difficulties with relationships and low self esteem. I also specialise in offering strategies for relaxation, self care and mindfulness.
I will work with you to address the concerns you are experiencing, helping you to find fresh insights about yourself, how you cope with challenge and why coping sometimes seems very hard. You may want to explore how you relate to others or how you can rediscover a sense of pleasure or joy. You may simply wish to talk something through, or to express your deep or troubling thoughts, or to sit in silence. Perhaps you need to learn new coping strategies or to find ways to achieve relaxation or peace.
After therapy, many clients say that they feel better able to deal with the issues that inevitably arise. Also, many clients say that they have a better understanding of themselves and the patterns that are holding them back in their lives. Finally, clients talk about feeling more in control of their lives, able to manage their fears and anxieties with greater awareness and ease.
