About Me

Finding the right counsellor is an important step, the fact that you are here means that you have already made the biggest step in recognising you would like some support. 

Counselling is a safe space to offload and explore what’s going on for you. Counselling is not about me telling you what to do.  It might be helpful to provide you with coping techniques and strategies to support you to find your own way forward.

I will provide with you my time, commitment and compassion to your needs in a safe and comfortable environment. In working together, this may ease your distress and worries, by breaking things down into sizeable chunks.

Counselling may include exploring your past or recognising where low feelings/emotions maybe coming from.  This can support you to evaluate your needs for now and the future.  When considering a way forward, it is natural to experience anxiety or worry about what may happen, I can provide you with ways to support this and encourage your personal development.

 

 

My Experience

I have 12 years experience and I work as a humanistic Counsellor.

My core training (Level 4 Diploma) included Person-Centred Therapy and CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy).

My psychotherapy training (Level 5 Diploma) continued working within a humanistic framework.

I have experience working mainly with bereavement, grief, loss, anxiety, trauma and relationships.

My Approach

I am a friendly approachable counsellor, I am here to support and you guide you through your current way of being.

I will support you to work through what’s going on for you currently, providing you with coping techniques and strategies, if needed. I can provide you with a space to understand and recognise your needs.

I explain counselling in an every-day way, what you are currently experiencing maybe coming from a build-up of life events or you are not feeling like your normal self.

I will support you to break down and understand what’s been going on for you, by understanding what’s getting in your way to progress, helps you to focus on what is important in your life.

I see counselling as an opportunity to explore your needs, recognise the whole of you – working with you holistically to explore your mental, emotional and physical health needs as well as your general wellbeing in all areas of life i.e. home, work and relationships.

I adapt my knowledge, skills and experience to your individual needs.  The space is yours to express what you need in a safe and comfortable environment. This can enable you to work through and understand how to cope, and adjust in your own unique way and time and find a way forward.
