Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counselling can help you to manage and overcome a broad range of difficulties that may be causing you emotional pain and distress by providing a safe, supportive and confidential therapeutic space for you to talk.
The foundation of my approach is collaborative and compassionate and my intention is to provide you with a safe, therapeutic, non-judgemental relationship where I hope you will feel heard, understood and accepted so that you can heal through your pain and move forward with your life.
I draw on a range of therapeutic models and methods so that therapy can be tailored to your individual needs and goals. These include humanistic and psychodynamic therapies, which can help to raise awareness and insight into the difficulties you are facing, alongside CBT which focuses on how thoughts and beliefs impact feelings and behaviours, and 'third wave' therapies which share the core aim of raising awareness of thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental way, and incorporating simple mindfulness and compassion evidence based practises which help to create emotional stability, and boost resilience and so that you can also learn coping strategies to help you live with more acceptance, freedom and ease.
Currently I am offering counselling online via a secure and encrypted platform called zoom, and by telephone which I have received specific additional training for. Online counselling is an effective and convenient way for accessing counselling from the comfort of your home or office. It can also be helpful for bringing difficulties which may feel more challenging in a face to face setting.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take steps towards change. Finding the right counsellor to support you is important. I offer an initial 20-30 minute consultation free of charge to help you to decide if you would like to move forward. Please do get in touch.
