Announcement icon I offer face to face and online therapy. Face to face therapy is offered in a safe space adhering to all health and safety precautions.
Being human can be complicated, there are times we all struggle to make sense of how we’re living. Sometimes nothing seems to bring us any sense of joy, meaning or simply contentment anymore. Talking to a counsellor might seem intimidating or downright terrifying but it’s honestly true that talking can make a huge difference and help make those negative or even desperate times easier to manage. My counselling practice 7/8 Counselling is named after the Japanese proverb, “Nana korobi ya oki” which roughly translates as “fall down 7 times, get up 8". My belief is that human beings have an almost boundless capacity for resilience.
As well as being a qualified counsellor I have worked with young people for over 20 years, some with behavioural challenges who describe me as kind and approachable. I enjoy working with people of all ages and have a special interest in issues such as bereavement, anxiety, low self-esteem and depression.
I aim to provide a safe confidential space where you can relax and gradually share your problems, regain some clarity and a more positive outlook to allow you to move forward. My aim is for you to feel optimistic again by listening with empathy and no judgement. I may challenge you but always with understanding, gentle humour and respect.
