I believe that our capacity to cope with issues that arise in adult life, whether this is how we experience the world, relate to others, cope with difficult situations or understand and manage what can often be overwhelming emotions, is ultimately bound up with our early experiences. Whether we wish to or not we carry our history with us and sometimes this does not provide the strong foundation needed to engage and embrace life or weather its storms. I work with clients to recognise the origins of their difficulties so that together we might arrive at a place where life is understandable, and they feel both validated and valued.

A trusting and positive relationship between the client and the counsellor is fundamental in the counselling process.

Have you experienced a loss in your life? Are you struggling to make sense and come to terms with it ? Perhaps you are feeling alone, sad, depressed and hopeless. Talking to someone confidentially, without judgement, who understands what you may be going through can help to lighten the load, process your loss and empower you to start moving on again when you feel ready to do so. Loss can be debilitating, it can stop us in our tracks prevent us from living in the moment, enjoying life and keep us trapped in the past as moving on can be a frightening and unwelcome proposition especially if the loss is someone or something significant.

My practice is called ‘Accanto’ and I have built my service around this name, which translated means ‘next to or beside,’ and quite simply that is exactly where I will be for you. I do have an A-Z of what I cover but actually this is about YOU feeling that you can bring anything you need into the safe and accepting space that I offer. Counselling is initially about feeling better about yourself, learning to love your real self so that you can then invite love and acceptance from others. I NOW WORK ONLINE
