Being heard and understood without judgement can be rare in day to day life but counselling offers this opportunity. Through empathy, honesty and acceptance, I believe that I can help you grow and develop, to empower you to live your life how you want to live it.
As a person-centred counsellor, I will help you to explore your own issues, feelings, beliefs, behaviour, and worldview, so you can become more self-aware and achieve greater independence.
During our sessions, I will help you to realise what resources and support are available to you that you can use to work through your own issues, build your self-confidence and appreciate that you always have options. I will treat you as the expert on yourself, as no one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you.
I will not judge you, no matter what you bring to the session and endeavour to build a trustworthy relationship in which you can feel free and supported to disclose whatever is troubling you. Eventually, it will lead you to discover your own abilities and autonomy, so that you can cope with current and future problems.
