I have experience of working with:
Work Related Stress
Grief & loss
Abuse - mental, physical & sexual
Self esteem & Confidence
This list includes some (but not all) of the most common reasons people come to counselling.
There are times in all of our lives when we can feel out of control or burdened by our thoughts and feelings, and at these times counselling can help, providing a safe space to talk through and explore with confidentiality and without judgement.
As an integrative counsellor I use various therapeutic models depending what suits the situation. I believe that creating the best possible relationship between us is essential to a good working environment and to build mutual trust and respect between us.
My job is to listen to you and to be alongside you as you explore and get to know yourself better. There is no pressure and we will go at your pace.
My job isn't to tell you what to do, but to help you explore your thoughts and feelings and help you decide what step to take next .
Counselling is a courageous, sometimes challenging process, but as we do this together, I believe growth, and if you choose it change, is possible.
