I never take for granted the fact that clients who come to counselling are at their most vulnerable. For those who are struggling with issues like depression, anxiety, abuse, both physical or mental, anxiety, relationship or sexuality and gender issues, my role in the first place is to listen and to provide a safe and confidential place for my clients to make sense of their experiences. Research has shown that the relationship between therapist and client is very important to the outcome of therapy, so I always check with my clients if they feel what we are doing in our sessions are working for them.
My clients are Adults and Adolescence. I like to work with a directive and CBT approach to help my client to gain the coping skills to overcome the problem that they has presented with. Working during Covid as a therapist the main client presenting issues for me are Anxiety, social isolation , behavioral, Low self esteem and confidence, stress. Once we identify the clients goal by creating new coping skills in a safe space. My client can learn to redirect the negative thought patterns, feelings and actions so they can achieve their desired goal.
I am well aware that life can be a struggle when trying to deal with anxiety, depression, profound sadness, grief, relationship issues, emotional upheavals, stress, long standing hurt or deeply embedded trauma. Sometimes it’s about self exploration. I offer a warm, safe, welcoming and non judgmental space where clients can come and examine how they see themselves in their world; explore unhelpful behavioral patterns and look at how they are in relationship to others and themselves. At all times in the Counselling space, I work from my heart; from a place of compassion and love, with genuine acceptance of the client just as they are
As an Integrative therapist, I endeavour to adapt my approach to suit my client’s individual needs, preferences and goals for therapy. The core of my approach is a combination of Person-centred/Humanistic and Reality therapy. My approach is rooted in empathy, understanding and compassion for the whole person, mind, body and spirit. Clients experience an environment of safety and confidentiality, where they can explore their life experience and challenges that are distressing them with acceptance, non-judgement and respect. I use Mindfulness as a therapeutic tool.
Taking the first step in deciding to attend therapy is often the hardest part, it can be difficult to admit to ourselves that we may need the intervention of another to assist us on this journey. Coming to speak allows an individual to be heard in way that is specific to them, a singular , and not to fit the specifics of ticking the boxes. Speaking about your way of experiencing life and it's difficulties and challenges, can free up a person and allow them to look through a different lens.

Everyone of us will experience difficulties at some point in our lives. For many people they may not recognise what has happened but will see changes in how they feel and even how they behave.

Life is busy - work, relationships, stress, illness and much more can overwhelm us but there is a light and nobody should have to endure difficult times alone.

Counselling offers you the tools necessary to bring your passions to life and let compassion, kindness and fun be part of your experience of life again. My job as your therapist is to co-operate with and enhance your journey towards wholeness. This is achieved by lovingly offering skills and experience, alongside knowledge of the terrain of personal development and creativity. I hold the assumption that people generally have the ability to understand themselves, are clever, honest, self-directed and able to solve their own problems. I'm here to support that assumption by reflecting back the light I see in you.
Are you suffering from a distressing life experience? Perhaps you’re feeling alone? Depressed? Anxious? Does your life seem chaotic? Feeling like this is not unusual. Our bodies and minds send us messages to help us navigate life’s challenges and heal from these painful and stressful experiences. Learning to listen to these messages and learning how to use them is at the heart of our wellbeing.
Many people experience some form of disruption in their mental wellbeing at some point across their life and may need some extra supports when managing this. Perhaps you may have experienced something very challenging, upsetting or traumatic, recently or in the past, which you are finding difficult to process. Alternatively, you may be feeling tired, frustrated with life and lacking motivation for those parts of life from which you used to take enjoyment. Emotional wellbeing can impact greatly on varying aspects of daily life, hinder the ability to carry out normal daily activities and can cause conflict with those close to us.
There are many people who experience overwhelming emotion and find it challenging to cope with the stressors of life.
