Counselling can be thought of as an investment in ourselves. It is about giving time to think about the issues that are causing you concern.
Sometimes it is obvious what is causing the issue and at other times it is not clear why you might be feeling the way you do. Together looking at the whole you we can think about your current situation, but also reflect on your childhood, family culture, dreams and consider what this means to your current thinking and behaviour.
My role is to give you an opportunity to think. I provide a safe, confidential space to support you. I will work with you, as you go through a period of change in your life.
There are many types of counselling. I work with a psychodynamic model, which means that I work with both the conscious and unconscious feelings you may be struggling with. This means that we explore both your clear thoughts and also some of the things that might be informing your behaviour that you are not aware of.
The idea of beginning therapy can be daunting. Please feel free to contact me with any questions

Why am I a Counsellor?
In this fast paced world we live in, I feel we miss being truly heard and having time dedicated to ourselves. Spending time with someone when they need support is a privilege. Getting to know a person really well and seeing them change in front of my very eyes is something I will never tire of. I enjoy working with people, it is rewarding to me to know that I have given a person the opportunity to improve their life.
