People come to counselling for a variety of reasons, sometimes relationship problems or a life-changing event but often just a vague sense that something isn’t right. You may have lost motivation, feel sad or anxious and day to day tasks have become increasingly difficult to perform. We all have different ways of coping with stress and discomfort but sometimes the sheer magnitude or number of stressful conditions seem to pile on top of each other leaving us feeling overwhelmed. Many people find that counselling helps them to feel better in themselves, gain insight and learn new ways of coping with and managing life’s challenges.
I draw upon a number of techniques and theories, believing there is no single approach to suit everyone. I believe the most important aspect of the counselling process is the relationship between client and counsellor. The quality of this connection can have a positive impact on the outcome. I spend time getting to know my clients to fully understand the impact that their problems are having on their lives. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to talk about what is troubling you, even the most difficult subjects and always at a pace you feel comfortable with.
I have wide and varied experience which includes working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, domestic violence, self-harm, trauma, sexual abuse and relationship difficulties.
In addition to this, I have worked for a number of years with those affected by addiction and their family members.
