About

Counselling is about relationships with family, friends, colleagues and yourself. I create an environment where you are able to access and harness your own resources/strengths in a non-judgemental space to work towards your individual therapeutic goals. I will work alongside you and am keen to understand your personal values whilst working with difficulties such as stuck patterns and developing an understanding of what is maintaining them. I aim is to get to know you and your personal values so we can understand any issues and make sense of what is maintaining them.
You may find yourself stuck in patterns of denial, escapism or obsessive thinking as a response to your emotions. This can lead you to experience psychological distress such as, anxiety, depression, stress or tension. Despite longing to change, people can remain in these distressing and confusing states for significant periods of time.
Learning to interpret and be more in touch with our felt sense (emotions and feelings) and understand the root causes can offer you insight into finding ways to understand your own needs and process how these can influence your life choices. I am trauma informed and work to integrate cognition, somatic and emotional experiences to enable a life balance.
