Life is a series of changes, often bringing loss and pain but also the seeds of a positive transformation. Even if you're unsure how to move forward, a theme can emerge. Counselling can facilitate a new understanding of ourselves, our different relationships, our place in the world. By reassessing hopes and fears, we can work towards the difference we want to experience. Alongside general counselling, I have specialist experience in post-natal depression and traumatic emotional and sexual abuse. My approach, however, is to treat every person without presumptions, trusting the space that opens up and finding the best way for you.
Counselling can offer understanding and empathy, support and challenge, questions and a space for answers to emerge in a non-judgmental, neutral space. My approach is integrative, tailored to what you need. I'm trained in psychodynamic and person-centred therapies and integrate CBT-skills. I believe in nurturing self-compassion and a mindful approach.
Research shows it's the relationship between client and counsellor that brings change, rather than a particular school of counselling. I see counselling as collaborative work where I faciliate and support the changes you make in a safe, open space. I have extensive experience gained in a variety of settings from 4 sessions to working in an open-ended way.
