Life can sometimes be difficult and we may find ourselves struggling and feeling anxious, depressed and unconfident. We may find ourselves battling with the feelings evoked by loss, due to bereavement, relationship breakdown or even the children leaving home. Counselling is not a magic cure, but talking to an empathic, skilled therapist can help; fostering both the processing of difficult feelings and resilience to better deal with what life throws at us, enabling us to move forward. The effect of just being listened to by those who have hitherto struggled to be heard can be both powerful and empowering.
I am an experienced, empathic counsellor and I exercise gentleness and sensitivity in my approach. I am interested in helping clients accept and be compassionate with themselves so that they can remove obstacles to their growth and lead fulfilling lives. Compassion, authenticity and resilience are key words for me.
It can be hard to even begin to know and articulate what is causing us emotional pain but talking to a therapist who has a skilled and compassionate ear can help us ackowledge, process and move forward from the distressing feelings that are holding us back.
