A little bit about me
I believe wholeheartedly that counselling can provide an accepting, open and non-judgemental environment that facilitates a discovery of who we are. This self-discovery can itself be healing and can help people overcome distress or challenging life situations.
Before becoming a counsellor I worked within businesses helping with organisation development, change management, people development and HR as well as mentoring and coaching.
Having my own personal counselling has enriched my life and I chose to become a counsellor in order to offer the same possibilities to others.
How I work
I work in a non-directive, open way and in collaboration with you.
Counselling is not about being helped by someone else who suggests solutions to your problems, it is a journey of discovery we make together about who you are, what isn't working for you at the moment and what might start to make a difference.
At it's most basic level counselling is a place where you have space and time to focus on you.
Areas I work with:
Coping with chronic illness
Working with the elderly
Working with young adults
Divorce, seperation, relationship issues
Body image and self harm
Stress and work-related stress
