Thank you for showing an interest in my counselling practice. We do all encounter difficulties in our lives but at times the world gets on top of us and it may be more beneficial to talk things over with someone who listens. The first step is often the hardest and deciding to enter into a counselling relationship can be quite daunting particularly if you are new to counselling. On these pages I aim to give you some idea about counselling and more specifically about my way of working as a counsellor.
You may be facing some difficulty in your life, a major crisis, unhappiness in your personal or work life or a sense that you would like to change a particular aspect of your life.
Counselling allows you to talk to a professional who gives you undivided attention and doesn't judge you in any way. I have over 10 years of experience working with a diverse group of clients on a wide range of issues in sessions lasting between 8 weeks to several years. My aim is offer you a safe, confidential space where you can freely talk about any issues giving you cause for concern.
I work with clients on many different issues causing them difficulties in their life including
low self-esteem and confidence
stress and/or work related issues
loss and bereavement
trauma and abuse
issues around sexuality
As a trained couple therapist I work with couples who struggle to communicate effectively and who may be dealing with issues related to affairs, lack of desire, anger and frustration, wishing to end their relationship, lack of understanding for each other, parenting concerns or sexual problems.
