COMPASSIONATE AND INDIVIDUALISED COUNSELLING
HOW COUNSELLING CAN HELP
If you’re thinking about counselling, it’s likely that you’re feeling unhappy, stressed, anxious or depressed. Maybe you’re even feeling overwhelmed or burnt out. You might be hanging on to difficult experiences from the past or maybe you’re struggling with making the changes you want for the future. Counselling can offer you an opportunity to explore your feelings and find a way through to increased self-awareness and a more fulfilled life.
"For counselling to be successful,
the most important thing is that there is
a trusting, therapeutic bond between
client and counsellor"
I bring to my practice a calm and genuine warmth and will listen to your feelings in a non-judgemental way. I'll respond to your needs with compassion, respect and empathy, and will use a holistic approach to help you work through your current difficulties to better understand yourself.
I will offer you a safe and confidential space to share your thoughts and feelings. Working together, we will find a way through the problems you’re currently facing and build resilience to tackle life’s future challenges.
