How I work

By working integratively I can combine different counselling methods to suit your individual needs.

I take a Person-Centred approach in all of my work. At the heart of this lies the premise that we can grow, change and reach our full potential, under the right conditions. My role is to help you do just that, by providing a safe, trusting environment in which you can really understand your experience, and identify and break down the barriers which may be preventing you from moving forwards.

I also use Psychodynamic theory, looking at childhood experiences and the key relationships of our early years, which can have significant influence over our thoughts, feelings and actions as adults. Working through unresolved issues of your past can help you live more freely in your present.  

"I am definitely coping with everything so much better now thanks to my sessions with you!  You will never know how much our time together has meant to me and I am truly grateful that I came to you when I needed some support"

What are the benefits of counselling? 
How can it help you? 

Counselling provides the unique opportunity to have 'Your space, your time' in the presence of a trusted companion who fully understands and supports you, without judgement or agenda. 

Clarity of thought

Our minds can often feel like a tangled mess of "stuff" that is impossible to sort through alone, no matter how hard we try. Voicing thoughts and feelings helps to sort through the tangles, bringing clarity and relief.

A different perspective

When we are under stress or in very challenging situations, it can be extremely difficult to see a way forward. Time, trust and understanding can generate flexibility of thought and enable real shifts in perspective.

Focus on you

Life is busy. We can get so caught up in meeting the needs of others, that we neglect our own, or lose sight of them altogether. Regular counselling carves out valuable, protected space and time to focus in on ourselves.
