Sometimes during our lives we can experience anxiety, stress and depression. Life can feel difficult and we can’t cope, or perhaps we lose our direction and focus. This can be during times of personal distress, relationship difficulties, and major life changing events.Even events that are positive can cause us to falter along life’s path, leaving us feeling unable to decide on exactly how we want to move forward.
Gaining an understanding of our emotions, by reviewing and reflecting upon past and present events in our lives can often help us to gain clarity and feel more at ease within ourselves in the current moment. I have supported individuals and couples through short and long term counselling with a variety of concerns, some people come with specific concerns to address and others are initially unclear as to the cause of their unhappiness.
My aim is always to provide a clear, open, supportive and ethical service to enable individuals to explore, understand, and be resilient in their own lives, within what can be an increasingly difficult world. I offer one to one and couples counselling, a space for you to talk about whatever is on your mind in a confidential and safe environment.
I currently share my time between working in my private practice including a training consultancy. And as a Coordinator for Youth Counselling Service. Previously I have worked within the NHS, further education providers and several NHS Drug and Alcohol Misuse Services.
I work within the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy BACP Ethical Framework. The first meeting is an opportunity for you to begin to talk about your concerns, and for us to decide what support is appropriate for you.
