Are you struggling with your relationship? Finding it hard to find the real you? Dealing with family or friendship issues? Noticing that your child is struggling and needs support? Finding it difficult to cope with everyday life or realizing you need to value yourself more? If you have any of these thoughts, they are all things that you can bring to therapy amongst many others. We can work together for you to find a path through your challenges in a non-judgemental, empathetic, and honest process. What ever the challenge in life is, counselling can be a safe space for you to develop a deep sense of self which during life’s more difficult moments can be of assistance moving forwards.

I work with you, listening to what is happening for you, asking questions and prompts to help us both understand what the challenges in life are for you and the best ways to approach these to help find you the route forward to happiness and fulfilment. I work in an integrative style with a Person Centred base, combining CBT, Art and Mindfulness into the work when required. This means I work in a manner that means you direct the sessions which are held in a non-judgemental, honest and empathetic space.

I work in person and online, offering a range of different options. These include, working in schools with young people, working with adults and children in private settings, which for face to face therapy include working with you in your home or place you feel safe to talk, Walk and Talk therapy and where needed in a suitable room booked by myself. I also have a wealth of experience working with online video counselling and phone counselling and also offer text-based options for counselling. This allows me to be flexible and have a range of availability to accommodate all clients. I understand that committing to therapy is a brave step and I offer a free initial phone or video chat to see if you feel that the way I work will suit you. I then offer either 30-minute sessions to go through paperwork and to answer any further questions or 50-minute sessions. More information and booking options can be found through my website; www.brainhubcpw.com or contacting me directly on 07379116533.
