Unfortunately I am unable to take on new clients while the Covid-19 restrictions are in place. I hope that this will change soon. I am running a waiting list and if you would like me to contact you to arrange an appointment, then please send me a message. I will then contact you with an appointment for when I am able to see clients face-to-face safely.
There are times when life can be overwhelming and difficult. It can seem as if no one understands and there is nobody to turn to. Talking to family or friends may not be an option because you feel you may be a burden or the subject is just too personal. It can help to talk to someone who is impartial and non-judgemental so you can make sense of your thoughts and emotions.
Through talking to a counsellor, you can gain clarity around how you think, feel and behave. This can reduce anxiety and enable you to gain a better understanding of yourself leading to subtle but positive changes.
Taking the first steps towards counselling can be daunting so please take a look around to get a feel for what is involved. You can then book an initial consultation through my contact form, by email or by phone on the contact page.
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor who works face-to-face with adults over 18 years of age. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work under their Ethical Framework to ensure I work safely with my clients' best interests in mind.
I have a relaxed and friendly approach to my work, taking time to build a trusting relationship with my clients. I can offer a safe space where you can speak without judgement and in confidence and I will be warm, accepting and respectful of your thoughts, feelings and beliefs.
Although I take my influence from the psychodynamic principles, I believe that the most important aspect of my work is the relationship with my clients. Therapeutic healing cannot happen if trust and understanding is not present in the relationship. To help achieve this we will work together at a pace that you feel comfortable with. I will not tell you what to do but instead help you towards finding your own solutions.
