I offer confidential and supportive counselling covering a wide variety of issues for individuals & couples. I specialise in helping people work through complex emotions, traumatic experience and unhelpful thinking patterns.
Reflecting on how we are with others, and how they make us feel, can be revealing and bring about change so you can feel more present and involved in your life. I work with a warm non judgemental approach and at the same time I may challenge you to explore your patterns and thinking, at a pace that works for you. If you are feeling alone, with your thoughts and feelings, sharing them, however odd or frightening they may seem, will help you understand what makes you, you.
By gaining personal insight, you can develop a more positive inner dialogue, which will enable you to make changes for the better for yourself, and your relationships. As well as problem solving, the approach is educational, preventative and growth-promoting.
