What is counselling?

At times in life we may find it hard to cope with circumstances that arise. It may feel that our hold on a situation is not as strong as we want it to be. Past issues may be having an impact upon the present.

I will offer you the opportunity to take the time and space to reflect on your life and begin to understand and make sense of it. Through a respect for the pace you are happy to go at, our counselling relationship can lead to you feeling in control and able to reach your potential.

I will offer you the chance to identify your own resources and strengths which we can sometimes lose sight of in times of upset and stress. Talking things through can begin to unlock and shift feelings.

My work with clients has embraced a wide range of issues including but not exhaustive:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Substance misuse
  • Attachment issues
  • Bereavement
  • Family issues
  • Sexuality
  • Physical, emotional and mental health

I have a extensive experience and passion in working with young people. Having worked in mental health services for many years I understand the absolute benefits of therapeutic intervention at an early stage.  Young people who access therapy have a space to be listened to and heard which builds resilience and subsequently strengthens their mental health.
