About

(

)
Do you feel like you want to change something in your life? Do you feel stuck, like you want to move on but keep ending up repeating similar unhelpful patterns of behaviour?  Do you have a sense that an event/events from the past may be still stopping you from living your life to the full? Or perhaps you feel anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or struggling to control unhelpful behaviours? Well, you're not alone having these feelings. We all, at one time or another, experience struggles in our lives. I am a relational counsellor and I invite you to contact me to discuss how I can help you.
I provide a non-judgemental, empathic and safe space in which I will support you to talk about what troubles you. I will be curious about your experience as a whole person, including your thoughts, feelings, body sensations, and images that come to you. Familiarity with the detail of your experience in the here and now is often the first step toward change.
Sometimes we can feel shame, guilt, self-judgement, or even self-hate regarding how we feel. At other times, our feelings can be scary and a ‘no-go’ territory. Talking about your feelings with an experienced professional can really bring a relief and, in my experience, with time you will be able to rely on your resilience, aliveness and freedom within.
