" I have over 15 years experience of supporting adults, children and young people to overcome a diverse range of issues that have impacted on their emotional health and well being. I believe that being met in the here and now by another who is able to attend to our past, present and future concerns with acceptance and empathy can facilitate the healing of hurts and confusions. It can help us to gain a clearer understanding of how we can be influenced by old habits and learned patterns of behaviour that may prevent us from change. It can support us to develop greater self-belief and to treat ourselves with tenderness and respect."

"Therapy offers a private and sacred space to think, feel and experience your true self, it explores your needs, it processes feelings, and from this comes a new clarity, and you may feel different, clearer. I sometimes think of it as coming out of the dark woods and into the light. This transforming of the self takes place at first within the therapeutic relationship. Being listened to unfolds a discovery of new insights, which activates the development of inner strength, resilience, resolve, and purpose, as it gradually releases you from the felt wounds you have been carrying, such as, anger, sadness, grief, regret or loss.

"Being outdoors, in nature can help your mental health. Trusted studies have shown how it can help reduce anxiety, stress, depression and low mood, boost self esteem, and be useful for people in life crisis, feeling stuck or struggling with loss or bereavement. Movement helps you process feelings and thoughts more clearly. If you don't want to sit opposite your therapist in a confined indoor space Outdoor Therapy might be worth a try. Outside you can find your own path, we can wander slowly, walk briskly or find a space to sit for the whole session. Often we will end up doing a mixture of these things, depending on how you feel."

Narrative Counsellors
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviours. PL2 Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviours and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in PL2.
