At times life can feel overwhelming and you may be finding it difficult to find a way through your problems and worries. You might be feeling isolated and alone with what is troubling you or may have family or friends who are trying to help and offer advice, but it can sometimes be difficult to be open and honest about how you are really feeling with those closest to you. Counselling provides a confidential space where you can talk freely and openly without fear or defences and I can offer a warm, accepting, non-judgemental relationship where you can be truly heard, in a place where you can feel safe, comfortable and welcome. I do not offer advice or direction, but travel alongside and support you on your journey to find the solutions that fit you as an individual. Counselling can help you explore your worries objectively and can help build self-acceptance, self-esteem and confidence.
Sometimes our past life experiences have been set aside and the associated feelings left unacknowledged which can affect our relationships and way of being in the present. In working together, we can make sense of your past and present helping you to move forward with clarity and new insights towards a positive outcome. My aim with all my clients, both adults and children, is to build a relationship where it feels comfortable to be yourself, while you build a sense of who you are and how you relate to others.
