Perhaps you feel lost and upset that things are out of your control. Perhaps you are interested in counselling for something specific such as Anxiety, Depression, self-esteem/confidence, bereavement, anger and/ or you may be looking for longer-term psychotherapy. You might find yourself withdraw from people you love and having the impression no one can understand your pain. You might be at this stage of your life that you are seeking a new identity or the previous roles/ priorities you had in your life don’t satisfy you anymore. My approach holds space for both personal history and unrecognised potential for people looking to understand their difficulties and find a deeper meaning in their life and new possibilities.
Let me introduce myself and feel free to get in touch in order to discuss further. I have been working within therapeutic counselling settings several years and have considerable training and experience in general and specialised practice including working with clients facing: relationship issues, challenging family dynamics, depression, anxiety, work related stress, sex/pornography/internet addiction, infertility issues, separation, bereavement/loss, shame, low self-esteem, trauma, anger and many other issues that may manifest during our lives.
I am a registered member of of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP reg.) drawing from different therapeutic models when working with adults and young people in both short and long term therapy.
In my work, great importance is placed on the development of a sincere, genuine dialogue as a crucial component of the therapeutic process, as you and I together pave the way for making the changes you wish in life. Life can be challenging and overwhelming and an authentic exchange outside our circle of friends and family can enable us to overcome the despair that life may evoke to us. I see self-acceptance as a central part of self-development and growth and I aim to support people to increase their awareness and develop to their full potential.
Depending on your needs, the kind of therapy I offer can be explorative as well as practical focus to help you understand and overcome your difficulties.
Individual sessions are 50 minutes in length and are usually weekly. Couples counselling is 70 minutes and usually forthnightly.
To fit in with your busy schedule, Skype sessions are also possible.
I am bound by the Codes of Ethics and Professional Procedures of BACP and work in the strictest confidenc
