My counselling and psychotherapy service can help and support you on your journey exploring the issues that are impacting your mental health, and the ability to lead a fulfilled life. I understand the complex nature of emotional distress and can offer a safe and confidential, non-judgement talking space for you to re-discover your internal strength and resilience to cope, recover, and find your way back to peace of mind. At talking spaces counselling we offer an integrative approach offering a blend of person-centred, psychodynamic and CBT therapies

Our time together can be about one specific issue and may only last 6-12 weeks. Or if the issue is more complex we may be working together over a longer period of time.

Counselling is a therapeutic relationship at its core, and having a strong relationship between us is key for the counselling process to work

“I value difference, honesty, integrity, finding your own way, standing out and embracing uniqueness, being connected, the counselling relationship. I strongly believe people can find their own answers. I know that I am not here to fix, rescue or collude. I don't have all the answers, although I might have an idea here and there. I know that I am OK to sit with people in pain and discomfort. I can tolerate resistance and being stuck. I am not afraid to be afraid. I challenge people. I find resolutions. I know answers come by going deeper and finding what is not within current awareness”
