Are you experiencing a feeling you no longer want, or is there a situation you would like to see changed? Outwardly life looks fine, but inside you feel flat, or highly anxious. People can’t see the suffering you are struggling with. Seeking professional help is not self-indulgent. It’s an investment in yourself and your future. It will benefit you and those around you. Therapy can help you understand why you feel the way you do, and what needs to change to feel better, and live a better life.
I offer a safe, accepting and non-judgemental approach, where we can confidentially look at any worries, anxiety and difficulties you are having. Please tell me just as much as you feel comfortable with. With time, your confidence will grow to tell me more and I can support you when you feel sad, angry, embarrassed or frightened. Further sessions may lead to you adding more details as we explore your experiences together. My approach values your uniqueness. You may want to talk through and explore confusing relationship issues, explore feelings of depression or anxiety, consider any family issues, or any other problems.
Counselling provides you the opportunity to talk freely about any problems, giving you the chance to explore the meanings behind your experiences, helping to understand any anxiety, and searching for new choices in life.
I always pace our work carefully so that I can really understand how you are feeling and what you are thinking. In couples work I help to hear and facilitate priorities, hopes and expectations for the relationship, looking at the possibilities for repairing ruptures and working toward agreed goals. My work is to help you make sense of your experiences and for us together, to help you find better ways of experiencing life.
