My Approach

I work with people to help them achieve genuine wellbeing and satisfaction in their lives. I believe that as human beings we have the capacity within ourselves to self-heal and that we need a gentle guide to assist us with this uncovering. I work in collaboration with people using a pluralistic approach. Judgement and advice are not part of therapy, I seek to empower and support you to find your own solution. I will help you establish your goals for counselling which will include regular reviews. Confidentiality is paramount.

Areas Covered

Anger, Anxiety, Bereavement, Loss, Grief, Communication problems, Conflict, Depression, Relationships, Self-Confidence, EPA, Stress, Couples Counselling to mention but a few.

This is usually the result of the demands that life and situations make on us. We may feel under pressure from work, financial issues, family problems or social requirements, etc. When it is out of control it can seriously affect both your relationships and your health. There are a variety of approaches which can help with this, e.g. communications skills, problem solving skills and CBT.

This is how we see and feel about ourselves. We determine our own worth based on a variety of experiences which may not be accurate. With support we can change our view of ourselves and, our worth in the world.

'But little by little,
As you left their voices behind,
The stars began to burn
Through the sheets of clouds.
And there was a new voice
Which you slowly
Recognised as your own.'
