How I can help you
*** All Online and Telephone Counselling will be half price for January - Prices on profile have had the discount already applied***
I can offer an empathetic, non-judgemental, safe and confidential space to talk about, and explore, your issues. Sessions are non-directive and therefore run at your pace, not mine. The goals of therapy will be discussed the beginning but these can be changed and adapted if necessary.
What to expect
Each session will last for around 50 minutes. The first appointment will be an assessment session - this will enable me to gain an understanding of why you have sought counselling and what you would like to change. I will assess if I can help you and you will be able to see if you are comfortable working with me.
Each session after this will generally be lead by what you feel you need to talk about at that time, with your goal of therapy ultimately in mind.
I became interested in the area of emotional wellbeing as a child when I witnessed the impact of depression on the lives of family members and friends. I studied Psychology and Counselling as a means to learn how to help myself and others find healthy ways to move forward from, and cope with, difficult life experiences and emotions. I have had Counselling myself and found it really helpful and empowering.
I have worked in mental health for over 5 years. My experience in this area means I have worked with people from all walks of life with many different issues. I worked as part of a therapy team for 3 years.
I work with Adults with a range of issues including; depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, abuse, relationship issues, self-harm, low self-esteem, bereavement and loss.
