It's okay to get support through counselling, and people from all walks of life benefit from the experience. Counselling sessions are confidential, and offer a space where you can work through thoughts, feelings and experiences that may be overwhelming, causing you stress or concern.
I have been counselling since 2011, working with adults of all ages and from all backgrounds. My approach is person-centred (developed by the Psychologist, Carl Rogers), and I can offer an environment where you feel genuinely safe, accepted, valued and understood.
I can assist with life challenges such as bereavement, loss and grief, depression, anxiety or other mental health issues, domestic abuse, pregnancy, parenting or relationship issues, stress, low self-confidence and low self-esteem.
Video or phone sessions are available via Zoom, Facetime or Skype, or I can see you at my therapy room in Wessex House in Eastleigh.
I am easy to talk to, and I won't judge or define you or tell you what's best for you.
I can listen attentively, so you feel heard and understood, and can get a fresh perspective on things and develop your awareness.
Sessions can include the use of art and or writing - sometimes, it's hard to put thoughts and feelings into spoken words. Alternatively, you may prefer a creative counselling approach or wish to experiment with these mediums.
My role in counselling is to enable you to make sense of your difficulties, find a way through them and continue to be the best that you can be.
You are very welcome to book an introductory session, which provides us with an opportunity to talk through counselling and establish if we could work well together. If you would like to book this session or ask questions before taking that step, please call 07729 193629, email me through this profile or my website.
