I adapt each counselling session to fit clients individual specific needs to enable the best possible outcome. Clients 'needs' are always priority and their confidentiality is always respected, creating a safe place to be themselves, and express themselves freely. Individuals can feel isolated and alone with their darkness, therefore I offer affordable sessions to help access private counselling to get the support that's needed. Feeling supported can remove the heaviness and gives hope. My clients matter - my clients deserve that opportunity to grow to become the person they want to be.

Often clients contact me when other therapy has not helped them in the way they had hoped. This is often due to the complexity of difficulties being layered in a history of trauma. Distress in the body and mind can be triggered by what appears to be something superficial. This can open up the past or come at a time when our emotional resilience is low so this event has a greater impact than it may have done. We can find ourselves not being able to function in our normal way. Many clients identify as 'good copers' and those who 'just get on with it'. Perhaps we can't now - this is frightening and can derail us.

Counselling is a time for you to explore whatever it is that is affecting your life right now, whether you have suffered a loss, are having relationship difficulties or life is just difficult at the moment. It is a time to express how you feel without being judged or given advise. It can be nerve-wracking making that initial contact for counselling, whether you've thought about doing it for a long time or not. I hope to put you at ease from our first contact and create an environment which feels safe. I hope that through counselling you will feel understood and can perhaps resolve some issues you are currently facing.
