What is counselling?
Coming to counselling can be daunting and nerve-racking at first.
My role as a counsellor is to listen and understand your world. I will work together with you, to explore and find a way forward, and hopefully make the process of counselling a positive and long lasting experience.
My role isn’t to advise – I strongly believe that each individual has the ability to find their own answers and can be empowered to change in the way that they would like.
Counselling is a tool to support change, and helps us to develop an understanding of ourselves, and how we can bring about the change we wish to see.
Most importantly, counselling is to provide a safe environment, and safe relationship – this is therapeutically very important, as being safe to explore your views, beliefs and perceptions with a person who is trustworthy, non-judgemental, emphatic and honest means that we can begin to understand ourselves in a new way, without fear of judgement.
What problems can counselling help with?
I can help you through counselling with difficulties you may be having, such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, self esteem, relationship difficulties, or trauma.
Our problems don't tend to fit into a neat label, and life can bring a variety of problems that means we will all have different ways of reacting to situations, and how we feel about things. Therefore, if you are considering counselling, and would like to contact me to find out if counselling can help, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Counselling is for everyone
Talking about it does help
Often in life, people find themselves at a point where they feel that they are struggling with an issue that they wish to understand better, and find ways to move past it.
Sometimes, people find that areas of their life don't seem to quite be working out how they would like, and don’t fully understand why.
