Counselling and Psychotherapy

How I work with clients

I am professionally trained with a Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy and have a history of working in therapy services and education. My work is based on the belief that your life has a purpose that matters, and issues you bring may be related to that purpose. Therapy can offer a space and support to explore your own questions and dilemmas. In this space the way you relate to the events of your life may evolve and heal and yield new meaning. Each session normally begins with a quiet space,’ giving the floor’ to whatever subject matter you choose to bring to the start of that session.

In the process of therapy, you may find that significant life changes come about, this can be rewarding and it can also be demanding for you and for others around you.

Counselling

Counselling can offer you time, space and support to really explore your feelings. Feeling our feelings, making sense of our experience and connecting to our wisdom can allow our heart to heal in readiness for what it seeks. It is a supportive place to express yourself and come to a better understanding of your life patterns. With an experienced professional it can offer a way through to a better and kinder relationship with yourself.

Counselling offers you the support and safety to begin to understand your patterns and it can actual give you a chance to choose how you are, what you want from and what you offer in relationships and life.

Knowing yourself well gives you the opportunity to make better decisions for you and your current and future relationships and your life.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and as such I subscribe to their ethical framework.
