Due to Covid, at the moment I am only working online using Zoom or on the telephone. I am hoping to be back face to face soon but think it will be the autumn to minimize disruption.
I am a Relate trained counsellor experienced at working with both couples and individuals.
I offer a down-to-earth, forward thinking, non-directive approach. I endeavour to create a warm, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship where we can focus on you and your situation. I will work with you to find an understanding of your concerns, your deeper needs and how they are affecting your relationships.
People sometimes bring past expectations and experiences into their present relationships and this may lead to feelings of being misunderstood, unheard and of loneliness. You might need to find a new balance after a time of crisis, or perhaps rekindle the spark in a good relationship that no longer feels quite right. You might be aware of repeating arguments and a sense of “here we go again” with no resolution, or beginning to see repeating patterns emerge but not be sure how to change. These are just a few of the many reasons people decide to seek counselling.
Some clients experience anxiety, depression, a life crisis, bereavment or feel “stuck”. I see my role as supportive of your change, giving you chance to explore feelings and experiences in a safe, confidential space.
Counselling can help to find new insights and new ways of communicating within the relationship and with the world at large. The chance to talk honestly can be liberating and the sessions are tailored to your needs.
