Feeling anxious and unsure what the next step is? Finding it difficult to relate to your partner? Finding it difficult to cope at work or finding it difficult to relate with employer/employee? Don’t know how to cope with addiction in the family or yourself? Are you in a overly toxic relationship? Do you want to start a new beginning/ business, but just can't!, struggling to stay motivated? Are you caught in a depressive situation? Do you want to change to a healthier relationship with yourself and others? Are you constantly in conflict with yourself or others? Do you experience obsessive fear?
If you are feeling a bit 'stuck', or unhappy with the way life is turning out it may be helpful to unpack your situation in a safe space. I am experienced in working with trauma, addiction and developmental concerns both with children, adolescents and adults. The reasons that the clients have come to me is to try and repair their relationships.
Going for counselling or therapy can seem scary; talking to a stranger about your personal life can seem daunting. I offer a non-judgmental and safe space for you to explore what is on your mind. I have experienced some challenging experiences which I am grateful for as they have shaped my ability to show empathy. I shall walk the journey with you.
