I offer a calm, supportive and confidential space where together we can unravel the difficulties you are experiencing. Everyone is different and experiences life in their own unique way, so I am interested in understanding and working with how the challenges in your life are affecting you. I believe that sharing and exploring your thoughts and feelings with a supportive and understanding therapist offers the opportunity to come to terms with difficult experiences, heal from emotional wounds, and find a way forward that is right for you.
Putting our thoughts and feelings into words is not always easy, so I sometimes offer creative ways of working, such as image making and using objects to provide a non-verbal way for expression and exploration. However, if working creatively is not something you would like to do then that is ok.
It is really important you feel comfortable with me, so your first session is an opportunity for us to meet to see if I am the right therapist for you, before committing to regular sessions. Counselling is more effective if you are able to commit to weekly sessions; however, if this is difficult for you then please let me know. I offer open-ended counselling, which means you can work with me for as long as you feel you need to and which we will regularly review together.
