"Sometimes we are unable to formulate an exact problem, but can feel 'stuck in a rut', 'low' or experience anxiety in relation to a specific situation, suffer with generalised anxiety or are generally unhappy and worry about depression.
The first step is to help you discover what it is that you really want from life, and how you go about unconsciously stopping yourself from getting it. I believe that all of us have the ability to help ourselves, provide our own answers to our questions and to solve our problems.
The possibility of encountering one’s own true identity can be frightening and frustrating. Many people expect to discover the worst, yet the hidden fear lies in the fact that they also may discover their best!"
"My specialist area is Bereavement and Loss, where I have worked with various types of bereavement from miscarriage, illness, and accidents to suicide and homicide. I also work with grief that is not always openly recognised as grief such as infertility.
Making the decision to seek support can be a difficult one but can also be the first step to making changes. Many people find that speaking with an independent person separate from their everyday lives can help to give a different perspective on what they’re going through, and can also facilitate a space for them to share what they’re feeling with no judgement in a safe environment."
"I believe therapy is all about empowering you to make choices and finding ways to change those things that can feel impossible and overwhelming. There are many dynamic therapies, tools and techniques that can help people change – but for the change to become a new habit and happen naturally they need to be integrated inside and this is why the therapeutic relationship is so important. Feeling the genuine warmth and regard of another human, being heard and supported in a confidential space is the glue that binds the change so that you can live your life in the best possible way."
"If you are taking your first tentative steps towards acknowledging and improving a personal difficulty, I can offer a gentle, safe, non-judgemental, confidential space where we can work together to understand more about you, your life, your feelings and what you would like to achieve.
I work with clients using an integrative approach. This approach appreciates that no two clients are the same, so I will aim to use a counselling style that is best suited to you and your specific difficulty."
"In counselling, the client/counsellor relationship is one of the most important aspects and I offer a safe, confidential and relaxed environment in which to create this relationship.
I aim to provide a secure place where you can feel heard, understood and accepted without feeling judged and where you can feel supported enough to explore painful and difficult thoughts and feelings."
