Dip. Couns HPD Cert. Gestalt
Counselling, or Talking Therapy, has helped me with my own life experiences and I am passionate about helping you. I can help you make sense of the way you are feeling and empower you to find ways to move forward. From my personal experience and from my 6 years experience of working with clients, I know that talking with a therapist really helps, especially if you feel you haven’t been truly listened to before.
My sessions are face to face in my therapy room, or online via Zoom, a secure way of having individual therapy. Whichever you choose, I offer you a safe, confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings with compassion and integrity.
I believe that we all should have the chance to be the best we can be and to make good choices for ourselves along life’s journey. Sometimes things happen to us which can hold us back, such as traumatic events, workplace stress, difficult or abusive relationships. When this happens, we can feel lost, have low self-esteem or lack confidence in ourselves. I can help you reconnect with your inner self and build confidence, manage anxiety or stress and feel good about yourself.
My areas of expertise include:
Anxiety and stress
Over 5 years of experience as a therapist tell me that everyone's experiences and life story are different and so I tailor my approach to suit your individual needs. At all times, the heart of the way I work is to build a relationship of trust and respect with you, so that you feel safe to explore the issues and difficulties you face.
The core of all my therapy is Counselling and Psychotherapy
and I'm also trained in:
EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique
I find that a blend of counselling with these skills creates a therapy that is both unique and very beneficial.
