At times life can be stressful and overwhelming. Being able to share your worries and concerns in a caring and supportive environment can be really helpful. Counselling can provide that safe space where your voice can be heard.
I am a Person-Centred practitioner and I believe that given the right conditions in therapy people can grow and flourish.Therapy provides a safe place for exploration and discovery of the beliefs and attitudes that can limit an individual's development towards happiness and fulfillment.
I work with young adults and older clients on relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. As a Person-Centred therapist I believe in the autonomy of each individual to grow and I am here to support you in a safe environment where you can be heard. I work in a caring and empathic way and I will always be guided by you regarding what you want to discuss and how your sessions progress.
I work in the Barnham area and offer short or long term therapy. Sessions are usually 50 minutes long, happen on a weekly basis at a regular time,and this will be discussed when we first meet.
Counselling offers you space and time to talk through any issues, difficulties or concerns you may be experiencing. I have a particular interest in issues of race and identity.
I believe we all have the ability to make changes in our lives which are beneficial. Counselling is a first step to achieving your potential and greater happiness.
