Have you had a bereavement/trauma and are you finding it hard? Do you feel anxious and don't know how to manage it? Do you feel that you are not good enough for work, family or friends? Or do you feel that things are just too much at the moment and you are exhausted from thinking and feeling all the time?

I can help you to
- Be heard.
- Process the loss/bereavement and find a way of carrying the loss with you in a way that works for you.
- Feel less anxious.
- Talk through a situation/issue to make sense of what has happened.
- Work with and explore your strengths.
- Change any behaviour/thoughts you feel are stopping you leading the life you want to lead.
- Find and develop new ways of coping with situations/feelings/emotions.
- Examine all your options.
- Deal with painful/difficult relationships.
- Improve your confidence/self-esteem/assertiveness

I achieve this through getting to know you, really listening to who you are and what has lead you to this point then helping you to find ways, that work for you, to achieve your goals for the future

I am a skilled and experienced counsellor and NLP Practitioner offering individual counselling alongside life coaching, IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapy) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) to ensure you get the best, most appropriate support to empower you to achieve your goals.

You may well be finding it hard to find someone you’re able to open up to just from reading a few words online. Why not get in touch for an informal chat so you feel at ease when choosing me to support you during this difficult time in your life.

Sessions are confidential.
