I am a qualified and experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist working towards UKCP accreditation. Therapy is an opportunity for you to be heard and really listened to. Some people are going through a time of low mood or life issues when they search for help, and others just feel they need space for them to work through their feelings and emotions. Often my clients have been feeling anxious, low, unhappy, fearful or out of control for a long time, until they discover that they hold the power to change their lives through therapeutic support.
Sometimes we face tough times and difficult challenges in our lives and don't know where to turn. My belief is that therapy can be an effective and positive way forward in working through challenges and developing constructive strategies. My role is to facilitate you to achieve your therapeutic goals. Whether you are struggling in a relationship or with work issues, dealing with loss or feeling anxious, I can help you to unlock your potential, uncover emotional blocks and retrain your mindset so that you can lead the life you feel in control of.
More and more people are finding that counselling can help them discover their own path or journey through what can seem like a maze of issues, decisions and choices. It can help them to understand what is happening in relationships at difficult times so that they can regain a sense of meaning, balance and control in their lives.
Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or worried ? Perhaps your mood has been low for a while and you can’t seem to shift that feeling. Sometimes life events such as losing a loved one, relationship break-ups, family problems or work issues can leave us feeling helpless. Perhaps you are considering help to untangle your thoughts. Maybe you think a lot about things that have happened in the past that still affect you. Sometimes there may be a sense that life is lacking in meaning and direction. We can all lose sight of who we really are and what we want from life.
