Counselling & Psychotherapy

There can be times when we have difficulty coping, or life seems to lose it's meaning. The trigger could be memories of the past, painful events in the present or worries about the future.

Anxiety, Depression, problems with relationships bereavement, divorce and the stresses and strains of everyday life can all take their toll. At other times we can feel as though we are aimless and our life lacks purpose. it can be difficult to confide in family or friends.

In these situations, it can be helpful to talk to someone who is trained to listen without judging you or trying to influence your decision-making.

A counsellor can give you the time and space to explore your concerns, enabling you to make the changes necessary to move forward in your life. 

What Conditions Can Counselling help:

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Trauma
  • Relationship Issues
  • Self harm
  • Self esteem and confidence
  • Anger management
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexuality
  • Bereavement

To empower the client to have the potential to work through their issues to lead a more fulfilling life, given the right climate and therapeutic relationship. This enhances an individuals mental and physical well being. Often we experience Stress, trauma, illness and are unsure why we are unable to regain strength or why we continue in a cycle of illness and depression.When emotional needs are not met or when our resources are used incorrectly, we suffer considerable distress. When we start to look at our resources and unmet emotional needs and start activating our own natural resources in new ways we then regain mental and physical well being.

Many individuals have 'formed' themselves by trying to please others but when they are free, they move away from being this person as they have a stronger understanding of now who they truly are.

I am a fully qualified, experienced counsellor, offering time and a confidential, safe space where you can begin to explore any issues which may be concerning you.

Counselling is about helping you make sense of your thoughts and feelings, so that you can then make decisions about what, if any changes you wish to make in your life. I believe that each person is the expert on themselves and I am there to support and help people to find their own way forward at their own pace.
You may understand where your problems lie, or it may not be so clear, but you do know that you feel unable to cope as usual with everyday life. I am aware that, at first, you might feel anxious or vulnerable about sharing personal aspects of your life with me. My commitment is to offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space, where you can feel free to explore your experience of life and express your thoughts and feelings about the difficulties you are facing
