Counselling is a talking therapy
It can be really helpful to hear your thoughts out loud, in private, with a professional; someone who is caring, accepting and responsive. When you’re feeling unhappy, for whatever reason, it can be difficult to ask for help particularly from the people closest to you. It’s crucial you find a counsellor you can trust and connect with.
I work with courage, warmth, honesty and compassion. I combine person-centred and emotionally focused therapy to offer clients a way of understanding and regulating their emotional responses. I practice mindfulness and offer it to clients either as pre-therapy or as part of a counselling session. Whatever’s troubling you, my aim is to offer a calm and safe space where you can release the emotions you’re holding onto, whether that’s anger, fear, shame, resentment or complete confusion and then begin to see more clearly. From there you can decide what changes are possible and work towards a more peaceful and fulfilling future.
