Are you feeling lost, lonely, low? Need to talk? Life can be tough; you may feel vulnerable & find it hard to cope right now. Current issues may be difficult to manage, or there may deeper issues that are more complex, and affected you long term. It’s a really brave step to contact a professional therapeutic Counsellor, yet talking to someone outside of your immediate circle of friends and family can be really helpful. Making that first call or email can be difficult, but that first step can be a step into finding genuine support, hope for the future and help to carry on with life.

Although all clients are welcome, I specialise in counselling adults and young people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Condition and Specific Learning Difficulties, e.g. dyslexia. I have been working with neurodiverse adults for over thirty years, first as a teacher, then as an assessor, and now also as a counsellor. Although obtaining a diagnosis can bring relief, people often have many painful memories of school days and work, of relationships, and of not understanding and being misunderstood. Life can seem complex and confusing and sometimes who we are and what we want can get lost along the way.

How often have you had something bothering or upsetting you, that general feeling of not feeling right? You've gone to tell someone, a friend, family and suddenly they are trying to ‘sort it’ when all you want is to be heard, be allowed to voice these feelings, hopes, fears, uncertainties without someone judging you or saying I know how you feel. At Caercaveral Counselling I’d like to offer you a space where you can be safely heard, without judgement, where you can just ‘Be’ and we can explore what is happening for you. As a BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, you the client are at the heart of my practice.

My clients are looking to process past trauma and move on to a better quality of life. They are stuck in damaging and unhelpful cycles and would like to be able to embrace a more 'here and now' feeling. They have often experienced childhood trauma such as sexual abuse which has left them struggling to form and maintain healthy relationships. They need someone to listen to their story without judgement and who will offer a genuine therapeutic relationship that accepts who they are and challenges them to overcome the barriers that hold them back.

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.

If you have been feeling sad and if negative thoughts are dominating thinking, being in lockdown will be difficult. Fears and uncertainties that we can keep in check whilst working, socialising, exercising and generally going about daily life are going to resurface. Talking does help. It gives you the chance to bring all you concerns and worries into a safe space where I can help you sort through each of them. With careful exploration we can see what you might like to change and how to make the change. Life will feel easier and lighter as you start to gain control over how you choose to live it.

Are you feeling sad? Caught up in self-judgement, that voice in our head saying “not good enough!”, unable to accept a compliment because we always add a “but” to it or just wanting to be happy/different and not knowing how. And the thought of going for counselling can seem nerve-wracking. Maybe you just want to be ok and stop the unwanted thoughts in your head. Do you want to feel appreciated, recognised and respected? Well-being is key to a happy life but self-care can be a challenge when we're "not feeling it". I offer a space to be, to rest in and to talk through whatever it is. Take this pause, be nourished rather than judged.

Sandplay Counsellors
Sandplay therapy in Plymouth establishes a safe and protected space, where the complexities of the client's inner world can be explored. Often young children, clients place miniature figurines in a small sandbox to express confusing feelings and inner experiences. This creates a visual representation of the client's thoughts and feelings and can reveal unconscious concerns that are inaccessible. The therapist does not interpret, interfere with, or direct the client's sand play but maintains an attitude of receptivity and acceptance, so the client can bring unconscious material into consciousness without censure. If you're looking for a Plymouth sandplay Counsellor, or sand play Counsellors for sand therapy.
