What is counselling

What is counselling and can it help me?

Are you finding the challenges of life difficult to cope with?
Are you feeling stressed or anxious?
Are you struggling with a relationship?
Would you like to talk to someone who will really listen to you?

My Theoretical Model is Integrative and incorporates Psychodynamic Theory, Attachment Theory and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I also give space to clients to reflect on spiritual and existential issues should they wish to. I offer a warm, authentic, accepting therapeutic relationship in which I am genuinely interested in you and your story. Our work is collaborative, thus empowering and strengthening you.

Our childhood relationships have an impact on our sense of self, relationships with other people and our sense of the world and our place in it. Counselling offers an opportunity to reflect on the ways that we cope when we face difficulties.

I will endeavour to help you find resources within yourself so that you can work through what is troubling you – whether this is something current or in the past. Counselling can help you grow and change and enable you to manage challenges in a constructive way. Whilst acknowledging the pain of your difficulties, my desire is to help you find a way to live your life with a very real hope for the future.

I work with individuals and couples and have a particular interest in working with people who have been abused.

Abuse                                                   Life Transitions

Anger                                                   Loss

Bullying                                                Relational difficulties
