If you're drawn towards an approach that's open minded, warm and supportive, grounded in a flexible, effective combination of therapeutic practices, then feel free to phone or email with your enquiries about short or long term therapy. This Integrative therapeutic model works flexibly with your well-being, feelings and concerns at the forefront. Together we'll move forward at your pace towards exploration, insights and awareness that lead to relief, clarity and new outlooks on life.
My experience covers concerns including:
- depression and anxiety
- relationship difficulties
- losses such as bereavement, separation and divorce
- self esteem and confidence building
- self harm
- trauma and crisis
- recovering from abuse
- changes in life stages and ageing
- health and disability issues
- carer's issues
- hopelessness and lack of motivation
- loneliness and isolation
- cultural identity
- work and professional struggles
The counselling sessions
The first session will explore your circumstances, the reasons you've come and what you hope to gain from your therapy. It's an opportunity to get to know each other.
You can then choose to book in further sessions during which we will explore whatever concerns, feelings and issues you wish to deal with.
