Hello, I am a warm and compassionate counsellor who has a real enthusiasm for helping individuals work through their emotional issues such as anxiety, bereavement and low self-esteem towards healing and improved well-being, to make real positive changes in their lives. Living in a busy stressful world we can struggle daily with our personal challenges, leaving us feeling unheard, judged, anxious and alone. Sometimes we can feel poorly about ourselves, put enormous pressure on ourselves, compare ourselves to others, be our own worst critic and feel we are just not good enough, which can prevent us from reaching our true potential.
My counselling approach is person-centred, which means I collaboratively work with you to explore your issues, help you gain a deeper understanding of your thoughts and feelings, reconnect with your inner values and sense of self-worth, discover your strengths and encourage you to develop new ways of coping, so you are more independent and resourceful.
I aim to build an equal and trusting relationship with you, so that you feel more empowered to make authentic choices and better life decisions. With greater self-awareness, confidence and self trust you will be able to make positive steps to a more meaningful life. Please contact me for an initial 20 minute consultation, which is free without obligation.
