It can be difficult to make that first step to start counselling. I aim to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you and am trained to help people with a range of issues, including:
- Abuse – including emotional, physical and sexual
- Anger management
- Career problems
- Child-related issues
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Passive aggressive behaviour
- Postnatal depression and anxiety
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Relationship issues
- Social anxiety
Counselling is a talking therapy and I can support you by listening and helping you to identify patterns of behaviour, thoughts and feelings. This can give you more choice over how you live your life.
I offer a containing presence for you to reflect on anything from relationship problems to anxiety and depression. This can help you to make connections with the past and present and live your life more fully.
Working with you to identify a focus for your counselling, I will help you to trust your instincts more as I believe that you are the expert in yourself. The experience of being truly heard can be powerful and transformative, helping you to see things from different perspectives.
“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
Carl Rogers, American humanistic psychologist
