As a trained psychodynamic counsellor, I offer a safe non-judgmental and confidential environment, where you can feel comfortable and at ease in expressing and exploring your feelings. We would work together to make sense of your emotions, and with reflection, work out the best path to move forward. I work with a wide range of issues from anxiety, depression and life events such as bereavement, abuse, betrayal, family or relationship issues.
I have extensive experience of working with people from different sexual orientations, social and cultural backgrounds. I understand that you may be feeling anxious, a lack of connection, have a sense of loss or just feel stuck. You may even feel disconcerted or ill at ease, and cannot understand why or who to turn to. Coming to counselling may feel daunting, but actually is a sign of strength, and is often the first brave step towards finding a stronger sense of self and inner peace.
I appreciate that each person is completely individual, and so will find the most appropriate approach that considers your particular life circumstances. My aim is to listen carefully to your feelings and tailor the approach and work at a pace that makes sense for you. For instance, it may be that you need either short term or long term talking therapy, or simply require some CBT or Mindfulness to help provide some coping mechanisms.
