Being Well Together/Think Talk TogetherKey Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

Working in my current work environments I understand how the demands of daily life and major life events such as a Bereavement, Domestic Violence, Physical/Sexual abuse, or divorce can leave us feeling overwhelmed, confused or even just sad.

I also have experience of supporting Family affected by MND, and emotional support around the journey they will be going through.

My role as your Counsellor is to help you to explore the feelings and emotions that are often related to your current/past life experiences. I offer you the opportunity to reflect on what is happening in your world and for me to support you therapeutically to explore alternative ways of copings and dealing with emotive issues, that impact negatively on your life and to family and friends that are dear to you..

I appreciate how difficult it can be to discuss personal problems or even where or how to begin, but I offer a safe place to express your feelings and concerns, listen to you without judgement, and give you the time and safety to explore your emotional concerns, and support you through your decision making process.

I work with a person-centred approach to Counselling which means I believe you are the expert on your life. You can talk over any issue(s) openly and honestly, so you feel heard and understood and most importantly you will learn to articulate what you are feeling in a way that gives you the clarity needed to resolve any issue(s) and the strength to move forward with your life.
