Counselling is all about you rather than me; however, our relationship is central to you enabling your therapy goals, so it is important that you have some information about me to guide your thoughts.
First and foremost, I offer a warm, non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings safely, bring awareness, and help you achieve whatever change you are looking for. It may be that you have recently experienced a loss or change in your life. You may feel lost, stuck, anxious, depressed, have felt you lost part of yourself, or it has left you worried about the future. Or maybe something from your past is affecting you now, and perhaps you don't know how to cope or move forward.
In Psychotherapeutic Counselling, our relationship may help you through these changes, find a stronger sense of self and help you deal with your future more confidently. This may mean we talk about your childhood to see how that may affect your thought processes now, or we may explore your current relationships or talk about how you feel in the here and the now and consider what tools and resources may help you currently. We can discuss what will be most beneficial to you and tailor your therapy appropriately. I’m also a Hypnotherapist and EMDR therapist and can weave this into your counselling where appropriate.
I have over 20 years of experience in helping develop and encourage people's potential and have undertaken extensive training to support my counselling practice, having worked both in charity settings and private practice. I personally understand how difficult life can sometimes be and how we can't always cope on our own and need additional support. Sometimes feelings can be overwhelming, and you can’t share them with those around us. Our relationship aims to give you that support, even if that is the support you have never experienced.
I have worked with clients with various concerns, including grief and bereavement, relationship issues, adverse childhood experiences, depression, anxiety, career challenges, and ASD. I also helped people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
Life is a journey; sometimes, it’s easier when someone walks that journey with you. If you are ready to take that step, I would like to support and empower you.
I look forward to meeting you!
