There is no expectation from me with regards to the issues you bring; counselling is your space & it is common for people to feel confused or unsure.

"Deciding to come to counselling takes courage and this may be a big step for you. Difficult times, bereavement, abuse, trauma or abandonment can leave us with communication problems, depression, anger outbursts or panic attacks, burn out, self harm, addiction, eating disorders and other problems. Sometimes we do not even know what is wrong but we just know something is lacking. Times of crisis and uncertainty can be a turning point but some things must fall away to give space for new growth. What does this mean for you I wonder? What is underneath your difficulties, what is your soul calling for? "

"Counselling provides time in your week where you are listened to and supported to explore areas of your life that may be troubling you. I will help you work through difficult issues, enabling you to have more understanding and clarity around these issues. I am an integrative counsellor, this means my practice is informed by more than one style of counselling theory. Having an integrative approach allows the therapy to dynamically adapt to you and your needs, as opposed to being informed by a ridged style of theory."

"* I am not taking on any new clients until September 2019. Apologies for any inconvenience * Many of us have times in our lives when we feel the need for some extra support. Perhaps we are lacking confidence and self-esteem, going through relationship difficulties, feeling depressed, anxious, experiencing stressful life changes such as bereavement, divorce, or redundancy – or maybe we find ourselves at a crossroads and feel unsure of ourselves and of which way to turn."

"Scrolling through our Instagram and Facebook feeds it seems as though everyone else has their shit together. They're in great relationships with loving partners, travelling, in great jobs and always meeting new people. Confident, comfortable, happy, they have it all. While we might post expertly filtered pictures of our best angles, the reality is we hide away feeling less and less worthy with every post. We depend on our likes for approval. It's addictive. We have never been so connected, but we have also never felt more lonely. Depression is commonplace. Anxiety is everywhere and our self-esteem eventually gets to rock bottom. "

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful & traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear & hopelessness are some emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms. The loss of a loved one is a devastating event & the pain of loss unbearable. Feelings of guilt, anger & grief can become apparent & each individual responds differently. We are here to help you through your concerns of the future."

"I believe that everyone has their own unique story that is rooted in and intertwined with a bigger picture; family, culture, the wider world, etc. Challenges can therefore arise in many ways and manifest in multiple forms throughout life. As an integrative counsellor, I work alongside clients, focusing on their needs and adapting therapeutic methods and techniques, to their distinctive story. I do this through a holistic approach, honouring the fact that as human beings our bodies, emotions, thoughts and responses are all deeply interlinked, which neuroscience is increasingly revealing. "
