Counselling & Psychotherapy
Life is frequently 'messy', so if you're looking to explore and make sense of any current difficulties that you may be experiencing to improve your overall well-being and satisfaction with life, you've come to the right place. I am an experienced humanistic therapeutic counsellor and look forward to meeting you.
What I Offer
I work within a humanistic framework taking the view that every individual and their personal journey is a unique one. I am committed to providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental therapeutic space in which clients can begin to explore the problems and dilemmas that are affecting them and where they are currently at in their life. To this end I hold at the core of my work what I see as fundamental attitudes to the development of an effective therapeutic relationship, empathic understanding, genuineness, acceptance and respect. I work individually with people specifically aiming to help them to live life more fully and rewardingly. I provide both short and longer term counselling and psychotherapy to those individuals wishing to undertake a personal exploration of where they are in their life, helping them to make some sense out of it through examining their past, how this impacts on their present day living and in turn contributes to expectations of their future.
How to Start
I offer a FREE initial meeting so that we can both take the opportunity to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you. I encourage anyone considering undertaking a personal journey through counselling to meet with more than one therapist before making a final decision. The commitment to a series of counselling sessions is a serious and often difficult one to make, frequently taking a great deal of courage. Therefore it is crucial to make sure the decision to embark on this journey is with someone that you feel comfortable and safe enough with to talk openly and honestly about matters that can be deeply personal as well as potentially distressing and that you may never have been able to speak to anyone else about without feeling judged. In order for counselling/psychotherapy to be effective you must be able to trust your therapist and be sure that you feel comfortable and safe.
Always ask yourself:
"When I sit in a room with this person as my therapist do I feel comfortable and able to talk openly about my problem/s?"
